With advances in science and technology, the demands for and expectations of healthcare are changing rapidly. The need to provide good quality, safe and affordable care is putting increasing pressure on policymakers, professionals and the public, and this is now severely testing the clinician-patient relationship. While there are many reasons for this situation, one reason relates to the limited knowledge and understanding of issues of professionalism and ethics. This course is our modest effort to try and address this deficit. The course is designed to cover key constituent parts of medical ethics. It is suitable for any healthcare professional wanting to acquire a basic grounding in the subject. It is designed for self-directed learning, with opportunities for learners to test their knowledge and understanding at regular intervals, after working through the materials for each group of Modules. The course avoids jargon, as far as possible, and it generally has a practical bias with a theoretical underpinning. The course is designed to help you: Promote more ethical practice in clinical medicine and restore clinical-patient trust. Highlight developments in the UK and India, and provide learning relevant to other clinical professionals and to other countries. There are five (5) modules to complete, which include: Module 1: Rights and Responsibilities Module 2: Ethico-Legal Frameworks Module 3: Beginning and End-of-Life Module 4: Governance Module 5: Healthcare Approximate time for completion of this course is 7 hours at an average reading rate of 144 words/minute.
