Risk Managers are faced with ethical and moral issues linked to ethically complex care and operational issues on an almost daily basis. Having an awareness of the deeper ethical issues and real-world implications will help the risk manager respond to these moral dilemmas. This presentation focuses on the following risk management topics and their ethical concerns: (a) end-of-life care and over-utilization of medical resources for non­beneficial care; (b) physician-patient relationship/paternalism; and (c) high-risk ethical issues surrounding the emergency department, obstetrics, and pediatrics.

This webinar will help participants to:

  • Describe three areas of medicine where moral and ethical issues impact risk managers
  • Identify and apply the ethical principles to situations where there are moral and risk management conflicts
  • Implement recommendations that can reduce or mitigate potential liability related to moral issues in medicine
