Have an Ethical Dilemma? Let’s Talk About it!
The simple definition of ethics is " a sense of right and wrong." And we all know that right and wrong are in the eyes of the beholder. Right? Morals seem so subjective and personal. However, ethics as a science is not as subjective and malleable as this definition suggests.
As individuals and healthcare professionals, medical lab scientists are living in an increasingly complex world-complex in terms of relationships, technology, demands; and even in terms of what is scientifically possible. On a daily basis we are all faced with ethical dilemmas. What is the right thing to do in this situation?
Because ethics is a science it has ts own rules and constructs. There are definite principles and logic that can be applied, even in tricky situations.
I am pleased and excited to present a webinar for ADVANCE on February 7, 2012 on the subject of ethical decision making in the laboratory. The goal is not to make this an academic exercise. Rather, I will discuss basic ethical principles and spend the bulk of time aswering questions submitted by you, our ADVANCE readers.
Please submit questions directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, to ADVANCE editor, Matthew Patton (email@example.com) or by making a comment directly below.
Then sign up for the webinar and just listen in to hear your case discussed or question answered. I look forward to hearing from you all.
