Healthcare professionals face ethical and legal dilemmas every day of their professional lives. In this certificate, you'll explore the legal and ethical risks that result from factors in the medical industry, including ever-shrinking resources, shorter lengths of stay, high-acuity patients, the availability of more complex information, diverse patient populations, and the use of technology. The certificate provides an overview of the legal and ethical issues that are common in the world of medical care, including the most current issues arising from scientific and technological advances. You'll examine the legal implications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and consider the issues that arise from on-the-job situations such as medication errors, organ donation, and workplace violence. You'll also explore how the rise of social media has impacted the healthcare industry. By the end of the program, you'll have a solid grasp of crucial topics in the healthcare industry that are important to anyone working in the medical field.
