This half-day workshop is intended to increase the capacity and confidence of individuals who are or soon will be directly involved with clinical ethics consultation.  The focus will be primarily on the process of clinical ethics consultation in NSHA and using tools that have been developed to support ethics consultation.

Participants will leave with resources to support further learning and reflection; this workshop is not able to provide comprehensive training in clinical ethics consultation within the time available.

Objectives:  At the end of the workshops, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the approach to clinical ethics consultation used in NSHA
  • Adapt the model of clinical ethics consultation for particular situations
  • List some of the key competencies for clinical ethics consultation
  • Describe challenges commonly encountered in providing clinical ethics consultation
  • Identify strategies to address challenges that can arise for clinical ethics consultants
