Description : Through immersive technology and instructional design, the Navigate 2 Scenario for Health Care Ethics creates an environment in which the student assumes various roles within the Health Care System, where they will be presented with ethical dilemmas and various opposing viewpoints. In some cases, the "right" decision can be subjective, and the student will need to use ethical decision-making skills to defend their choice. In each episode, the student will progress through a series of different settings and character interactions that will teach them about key concepts in Health Care Ethics. The student will analyze information, make decisions, and see the impact of their participation in real time. At the end of the episode, students will have the opportunity to assess their knowledge with a multiple-choice quiz that reports directly to their instructor's Navigate 2 gradebook. Episode 1: Equipment Purchase In this episode, the student is the CFO of small rural women's health center within Bright Road Health Care System. The physicians in the center have approached the student to purchase a mammography 3D machine, at a cost of $500,000. The student will have to use newly learned ethical decision making skills to consider finance, authority of Board of Directors, public relations/marketing, wishes of medical staff, needs of the community, and future implications when making a decision as to whether or not to bring in the new technology. Episode 2: Stockpiling In this episode, as the purchase/procurement manager of a large hospital within the Bright Road Health Care System, the student will have to make a critical decision with regards to a particular cancer treatment drug that was recently taken off the market. The student will use the information gathered to consider the good of the individual vs. good of community, PR, humanitarian aspects, future cost of medicines, future availability of the medicine, and potential of the hospital needing the medicine in near future. Episode 3: Labor and Delivery Services In this episode, the student is the manager of the Social Services Department. As part of the ethics committee for a rural 18-bed hospital, the CEO and CFO ask the student to contribute to an initial discussion on the decision to continue having labor and delivery in the hospital. The student knows that historically in this community, women seek late prenatal care. In discussions with the committee, the student learns that the Ob/Gyn has no back-up specialty coverage, that the family practitioner really does not want to do obstetric services (late nights, insurance...), and that the community loves the service. Based on this information, the student must make a recommendation whether to continue labor and delivery services at the hospital. Episode 4: Confidentiality In this episode, the student is the head of Information Technology (IT) Services. When test results for an upstanding member of the community come back as positive for Syphilis, the student is presented with some ethical decision making challenges based on laws requiring that the results to be reported to the state Public Health department, versus the ethics of patient/physician confidentiality.

Description : Making effective decisions in the behavioral health professions requires an understanding of essential legal principles governing practice. The technical manner in which these principles are often presented in law treatises makes it difficult for the decision maker to prioritize and apply them in a practical manner. Applied Law in the Behavioral Health Professions addresses this significant problem by presenting social workers, counselors, psychologists, and students with an understandable and efficient strategy for applying the law in daily practice. Through the book's multidisciplinary approach, practitioners are assured of making informed, thorough, and sensitive professional choices. The decision making framework introduced stresses a ranked consideration of fundamental legal, ethical, cultural, and regional factors that influence practice. The usefulness of the framework in addressing diversity issues in behavioral health is highlighted using examples focusing on the Hispanic and Native American populations of New Mexico and the southwestern United States.

Description : This book discusses some of the most critical ethical issues in mental health care today, including the moral dimensions of addiction, patient autonomy and compulsory treatment, privacy and confidentiality, and the definition of mental illness itself. Although debates over these issues are ongoing, there are few comprehensive resources for addressing such dilemmas in the practice of psychology, psychiatry, social work, and other behavioral and mental health care professions. This book meets that need, providing foundational background for undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses. Topics include central questions such as evolving views of the morality and pathology of deviant behavior; patient competence and the decision to refuse treatment; recognizing and treating people who have suffered trauma; addiction as illness; the therapist's responsibility to report dangerousness despite patient confidentiality; and boundaries for the therapist's interaction with patients outside of therapy, whether in the form of tennis games, gift-giving, or social media contact. For the most part the selections address contemporary issues in contemporary terms, but the book also offers a few historic or classic essays, including Thomas S. Szasz's controversial 1971 article "The Ethics of Addiction." ContributorsLaura Weiss Roberts, Frederic G. Reamer, Charles P. O'Brien, and Thomas McLellan

Description : Patient autonomy is a much discussed and debated subject in medical ethics, as well as in healthcare practice, medical law, and healthcare policy. This book provides a detailed and nuanced analysis of both the concept of autonomy and the principle of respect for autonomy, in an accessible style. The unique feature of this book is that it combines empirical research into hospital practice with thorough philosophical analyses. As such, it is an example of a new movement in applied ethics, that of 'empirical ethics'. The key themes are informed consent and medical decision making, personal well-being, competence, paternalism and decision making for incompetent patients. Much attention is also devoted to autonomy in non-decision making situations - patient control over small everyday aspects of care, authenticity and existential aspects of illness, autonomy and the 'ethics of care', and the relationship between autonomy and trust in the physician-patient relationship. This book will be of interest to those working or studying in the field of medical ethics and applied ethics but also to healthcare professionals and health policy makers.

Description : Most mental health professionals and behavioral scientists enter the field with a strong desire to help others, but clinical practice and research endeavors often involve decision-making in the context of ethical ambiguity. Good intentions are important, but unfortunately, they do not always protect the practitioner and client from breaches in ethical conduct. Academics, researchers, and students also face a range of ethical challenges from the classroom to the laboratory. Now in a new expanded edition, Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions, the most widely read and cited ethics textbook in psychology, has emerged with a broadened scope extending across the mental health and behavioral science fields. The revised volume considers many of the ethical questions and dilemmas that mental health professionals encounter in their everyday practice, research, and teaching. The book has been completely updated and is now also relevant for counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, and psychiatrists, and includes the ethics codes of those groups as appendices. Providing both a critical assessment and elucidation of key topics in the APA's guidelines, this comprehensive volume takes a practical approach to ethics and offers constructive means for both preventing problems, recognizing, approaching, and resolving ethical predicaments. Written in a highly readable and accessible style, this new edition retains the key features which have contributed to its popularity, including hundreds of case studies that provide illustrative guidance on a wide variety of topics, including fee setting, advertising for clients, research ethics, sexual attraction, how to confront observed unethical conduct in others, and confidentiality, among others. Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions will be important reading for practitioners and students-in training.

Description : The legal system's impact and influence on the mental health profession has never been greater. Whether as a witness, plaintiff, or defendant, it is likely that a professional will have some kind of interaction with the law at least once in his/her career. More than ever, it is essential that psychologists, social workers, and counselors have a working knowledge of the legal and ethical mandates to which they will be held accountable. Legal and Ethical Dimensions for Mental Health Professionals is a complete guide to the law and ethics as they relate to clinical practice. These issues can often be very confusing as values and rules change based on clients and context. For example, a school counselor who works with children is bound by different rules of confidentiality than a psychologist who counsels adults. To simplify such issues, the authors divide information into the legal and ethical rules appropriate for various types of clients in a number of settings. The book opens with an explanation of the history of law related to mental health professionals, including a description of how and why laws related to clinicians are enacted. It then focuses on the therapist-client relationship and examines the many points at which legal and ethical considerations intersect with the practice of therapy. This comprehensive look at the standards of law and ethics is essential reading for not only graduate and doctoral level students in the mental health fields, but also practicing professionals.
