ETHC 640 - Cultural Perspectives in Bioethics
This course introduces students to a set of interdisciplinary issues concerning intra- and inter-cultural value and perspectival differences, including their impact on healthcare treatment decisions and/or end of life issues. The “set of interdisciplinary issues” will vary. Examples are: the impact of religious and holistic healing practices on the medical profession; the worlds of injured and PTSD-suffering veterans and their care; visual and performing arts in healthcare. Medical and Social Services professionals will develop useful understandings concerning these differences that enhance their ability to both directly provide and administratively allow effective health care ethics consultations in specific cases.
This course is typically conducted in a hybrid format.
