Title / Description:
Social Service Ethics in Rural Health Care Settings
This training will provide a safe forum to discuss common ethical dilemmas encountered in many rural community health care settings. We will discuss boundaries, confidentiality, personal and professional relationships and consultation, as well as other pertinent topics. We will also briefly begin to explore the use of an ethical decision-making model as a future tool. This two-day training will include multi-media such as videos, discussion, small groups, and PowerPoint.

Part One – June 6th:  This session will cover the NASW Code of Ethics and review rural concerns as they relate to the Code. In addition, we will review updates to the Code of Ethics from 2020 on and discuss and review boundaries, confidentiality, and technology specific to health care.

Part Two – June 7th:  This session will take a deeper look at ethical dilemmas in the health care setting though small group work.  We will explore ethical decisions making models and how to develop a consultation/supervision model to support your work moving forward.
