Course Description

This course examines ethical issues arising in the delivery of health care at both the level of the practitioner/client relationship (confidentiality, informed consent, euthanasia, abortion) and at a broader social level (justice and resource allocation, new technologies, professionalization and power). The course will draw on: a) general philosophical analysis of central concepts (good, right, justice, person-hood, autonomy, authority, integrity, health); b) general theoretical perspectives (feminism, "the Biomedical model", Utilitarianism, deontology); and c) student professional education and clinical experience in nursing.

Notes

There will be an on-campus exam for the distance offering of this course; however, arrangements can be made for those students who live more than 100 km from the Ryerson campus. For more information, visit Off-Campus Exam FAQ.
