Ethics & Evidence-based Medicine in Integrative Healthcare Part 1
Health care practitioners of all types face ethical dilemmas each and every day in practice. Integrative health (IH) practitioners particularly find themselves navigating in ethically challenging waters. The more recent emergence of evidence-based medicine/evidence informed practice intersects with ethical traditions of Integrative Healthcare clinicians. This two-part presentation is intended to provide a guide to evaluating the ethical dimensions and decision making in commonly encountered scenarios in evidence based Integrative Healthcare practice.
Through didactic instruction, group discussion, and experiential learning, attendees will:
- Assess their own ethical perspectives.
- Review the development of biomedical ethics with a particular focus on the history and the current state of ethical thought in the Integrative Healthcare professions.
