The program outlines the fundamental differences between clinical issues, legal questions, risk management strategies, and ethical issues. While overlap exists, ethical questions arise when there are two competing ethical principles at odds. The course will reference both the ACA and the NBCC Code of Ethics. Clinical issues deal with treatment-oriented concerns. Legal issues concern state, federal, and case law, as well as statutes and regulations. Risk management typically focuses on reducing liability. Several case examples will be given to demonstrate how these issues overlap and are important to high quality of care.
