Item #: Ethical Confidentiality of the Deceased Patient
The Ethical Protection of the Confidentiality of the Deceased Patient, is a course which earns 2 CEUs with the Texas Board of Acupuncture Examiners. We will learn about this sensitive medical and ethical issue and its connection to Chinese Medical practice. Medical Ethics, as we have mentioned in our other Ethics courses, is a very important part of being a healer and, in the United States and Canada more than 25 universities offer degrees in medical ethics. In many instances, the subject is also part of the curriculum in the education of physicians and other health-care professionals. The topic presented in this course is rare and infrequently discussed, and yet knowing its intricacies is vital to any practice. We will discuss areas of our Acupuncture practice where problems may arise, read examples, and learn how best to resolve them ethically, should a practitioner run into a situation that concerns a former patient who is now deceased.
