AHA 207 - Ethical/Legal Aspects of Health Care Management

Rapid advances in medical technology challenge legal and ethical standards, and lend to situations requiring moral decisions. This course provides the student with an introduction to law, ethics and bioethics as they apply to decision making in the health care setting. It is not the intent to provide the student with right or wrong answers for ethical issues. Emphasis is on use of appropriate language, application of ethical principles, and use of critical-thinking skills to articulate a point of view on current issues in health care.
