FREE May Webinar – Navigating the Liminal Grey Spaces: Embedding Ethics into the Palliative Care Approach

Ethics is something we all carry with us but not everyone realizes how our personal ethics often influence our professional practices. In this session we will discuss ‘what even is ethics’? We will also aim to address and explore why ethics matters when we deliver palliative care.  

Learning Outcomes

  • Discuss what ethics is and why it matters in palliative care practices
  • Reflect upon which ethical principles resonate with and guide participants
  • Recognize and acknowledge the varied ethical approaches that can be taken in palliative care
  • Be able to identify ethical tensions when they arise
