University of Liverpool
With an increasingly mobile population across the world, healthcare professionals, more than ever, need to manage a broader range of health care problems. This course has been designed to address these challenges and will provide you with a greater understanding of the complexities of socio-cultural factors across different countries, enabling you to develop your skills in complex decision making and ethical reasoning.
As the importance of understanding and undertaking biomedical research on a global scale increases, healthcare professionals, simultaneously, need to develop modern and flexible research skills and professional behaviours in the field of clinical ethics. Major advances in medical and communication technology have increased patients’ expectations and options too, meaning future clinicians need to be equipped with a wide range of intellectual and practical skills to deal with limited healthcare resources nationally and internationally.
The Global Healthcare Ethics programme will help you to do just that.
The course encompasses a broad range of subjects, from general ethics theories to legal and societal aspects of medical practice and cultural components and representations of body, health, illness and the role of medicine. It also provides an opportunity to gain a deeper and more systematic awareness and understanding of these issues, and to explore the moral problems encountered by health care professionals around the globe.
