This unit may also be offered as a spring school to selected students.
This unit explores how legal and ethical principles inform the practice of healthcare professionals in Australia. Students will gain knowledge of the fundamental legal and ethical principles governing practice and reflect on how to apply these in everyday situations. Through the analysis of case-studies, students will also gain a critical appreciation of the legal and ethical complexities and multiple perspectives inherent in any healthcare context.
