One of the most important fundamentals to health and patient advocacy as a profession is its reliance on its codes of ethics to inform performance and expectations.
Several codes have been developed over the years, all of which support advocacy as perhaps the most ethical profession among those who choose to work in healthcare systems.
This course will walk you through the core values upon which existing codes rely, discuss specific statements within two of those codes, and provide examples of how to apply those statements to situations that may call for ethical dilemmas, and decisions that should be based on an advocate’s ethics.
