    Participants will:

    1. Gain an understanding of the inextricable relationship between ethical practice and risk management.
    2. Acquire a basic understanding of a general framework for ethical practice and decision making in healthcare which can inform their current work and serve as a starting point for more specific ethics training modules.

    Best practice in the provision of care to children calls for all professionals to receive training in ethics. Aside from the obvious moral considerations attendant to expectations of ethical practice in working with vulnerable populations, sound training in ethical practice also constitutes a critically important approach to risk management, protecting the safety and wellbeing of clients, as well as protecting individual practitioners and agencies from adverse legal actions and licensing complaints.
