Ethics for Health Care Professionals


Health care practitioners work in a particularly ethically sensitive environment where critical decisions need to be made with the highest integrity and quality of thinking. What health care practitioners need is a method for quickly sorting through ethical requirement as well as potential constraints to ensure an ethically viable approach to health services.


This course is taught primarily through lectures and case studies but also includes readings and workshops. The course is divided into 4 parts.

  1. The first part presents an overview of ethical theory and concepts relevant to Healthcare professionals.
  2. Part two will examine the pillars of character, and the relationship between the key ethical principles in the context of professional-patient relations. The main principles include:
    • Respect for Autonomy;
    • Principle of Nonmaleficence;
    • Principle of Beneficence;
    • Principle of Justice,
  3. Part three will outline ethical decision frameworks and provide templates for making ethical decisions and measuring results.
  4. Part four will outline an implementation roadmap for a sound organizational culture, strategic instruments, and policy deployment

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
