Ethical Challenges of Physician Leaders

How much treatment is too much when a patient is terminally ill? What if the mother of a critically ill child refuses consent for a recommended treatment? How do you balance a patient's right to privacy against public welfare? How should resources be managed when a health care organization faces serious financial challenges?

As a physician leader, you need to be equipped to deal with complex and perplexing ethical issues. You’ll learn how to take a leadership role in developing processes for resolving ethical dilemmas facing physicians, patients and their families. You’ll learn how to build medical ethics into your organization's culture, policies and procedures. Key concepts include preventing and managing ethical conflicts at the bedside and responding to patients’ refusals of needed medical interventions. You’ll gain insights into setting ethically justified limits on individual and organizational self-sacrifice and how to set ethically justified limits on end-of-life care. Put your institution to the test by gauging its commitment to ethics. And learn how to manage your organization’s resources responsibly.
