My Patient, My Code, My Practice: Ethical Decision-making and Action
Thursday, May 7, 2015 – 1:00 p.m. EDT, Noon CDT, 11:00 a.m. MDT, 10:00 a.m. PDT
How often are you dealing with an ethical situation – and aren't sure what action to take? Do you feel dragged down by the weight of tough decisions that you have to make for your patients? Nurses face ethical dilemmas related to patient care and its practice on a daily basis. Dealing with these ethical situations requires finding the best option and acting to resolve the issue. Success is often dependent on a supportive work environment and without it, nurses often feel a high level of moral distress and fatigue.
ANA's May 7 National Nurses Week webinar provides practical advice, based on extensive research, to help staff nurses and managers take the lead in ethical situations. Incorporating the provisions from the revised Code of Ethics for Nursing, experts will explore several case studies that apply to common day-to-day dilemmas, not just high-visibility issues. You will gain a better understanding of the daily stresses created when making ethical decisions, and recognize the importance of employing self-care and self-awareness. In addition, learn about the value of an environment that fosters ethical behaviors as well as the role of nurse leaders in creating the space for their teams to have important conversations about ethics.
Benefits of attending:
- Learn the tools and resources needed to effectively recognize, manage and resolve a wide range of ethically challenging scenarios.
- Better understand the importance of the interprofessional team you work with and the roles the team members take in addressing ethical dilemmas.
- Discover how to incorporate and employ systems thinking around ethical challenges and the measures that need to be in place to gain resolution.
- Learn how to stay resilient and morally resolved in your ethical decision-making and action.
