HCM 467: Bioethics in Healthcare Professions
An examination of ethical issues raised by modern advances in health care and biological research. We will examine both philosophical and theological approaches to ethics. Special attention will be given to contemporary developments in both religious and philosophical ethics and to possibilities for dialog today between philosophical theories, religious voices, and biblical ethics. Study of philosophical and theological approaches will be closely tied to study of a range of concrete cases and narratives likely to be encountered by today’s health care professionals.
