In this brief lunch and learn workshop we will learn to take a practical, real-world approach to thinking through tough ethical situations. We will discuss key elements of risk management that you can implement the day you return to your office. The workshop will encourage interaction rather than using an "ask the ethicist" format, so be prepared to be actively engaged and ready to think on your feet.

This workshop is designed to help you:

  1. Review models of ethical reasoning;
  2. Reflect upon relevant Codes of Ethics and State laws and regulations; and
  3. Discuss fundamentals of ethical practice
