Medical Ethics and Palliative Care programme from Keele University provides an opportunity to explore and understand the moral dilemmas confronting those involved in all aspects of end-of-life care, and the ethical, legal and policy issues that arise in medicine, palliative care and related fields.
You’ll gain a solid grounding in a wide range of ethical frameworks which cover actions, consequences and character, from consequentialism and deontology to virtue or ethics of care. This will give you the tools to compare and contrast different approaches, and experience of applying ethical concepts, so you will be better able to articulate them in a professional setting.
This course provides a fascinating opportunity to explore the ethical dilemmas facing palliative care professionals on a daily basis, drawing on the latest research and real-life issues making the headlines.
In addition to the specialist knowledge you’ll gain, you’ll develop a range of essential transferable skills in analysis, critical thinking, problem-solving and communications. This can broaden your career options in a wide variety of roles in medical, legal and ethical fields, ranging from clinical or medical practice to policy-making, teaching or research.
