Participants in this workshop will examine bioethical issues and principles, by exploring the history of bioethics (landmark cases), the definition of bioethics, and current legislative proposals. An emphasis will be placed on understanding the social worker’s responsibility to self and workplace while respecting clients’ personal bioethical decisions. Discussion will focus on numerous medical issues, including cloning, assisted suicide, organ transplant, and life extension. Additional issues explored include “aid-in-dying” legislation, ethical issues in healthcare setting, code of ethics, ethical framework model, and best practice techniques. This is an interactive workshop in which cases vignettes will be presented and participants will work in a group setting to further maximize their understanding of the concepts presented.
