Certificate in Legal and Ethical Issues in Healthcare

$72

with Cyndie Koopsen, York Adult Education

Calendar Jul 1, 2022

Health care professionals today are acutely aware of the need to understand the legal and ethical environment in which they practice. Ever-shrinking resources, shorter lengths of stay, high-acuity patients, availability of more complex information, diverse patient populations, and the use of technology mean that health care professions must understand the legal and ethical risks inherent in their practice. Based on recent scientific studies, this program offers techniques and insights about how these and other aspects of life can support the healthy brain. This program is perfect for healthcare professionals and nurses or anyone who wants to better understand how supporting brain health can foster health, happiness, and wellbeing.

The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe the legal and ethical risks, and the legal and ethical issues related to HIPAA rules, medication errors, social media and healthcare, organ donation, and workplace violence in their health care practice.
