Ethics in Action: Dilemmas at the End of Life

The principle that good clinical practice requires sound ethical practice can be especially true when dealing with patients facing the end of life. Working knowledge of key medical terminology is a pre-requisite in therapeutic conversations that determine course of treatment. Mental health professionals can play a pivotal role in end-of-life care where dilemmas of the human condition and intersection of diversity factors often complicate medical decisions. In this workshop, case examples from a hospital-based palliative care service will allow attendees to simulate ethical decision-making and interdisciplinary team participation while providing mental health assistance to patients at the end of life.
