Targeted towards Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), this workshop will develop the individual's ethical and professional approach to practise. The AHP will be able to acquire essential knowledge in these areas - duty of care, consent, mental capacity, confidentiality, accountability, integrity and justice - which are grounded in Singapore's practice context. They will learn to address ethical and professional issues that occur in their daily practice. Participants will be able to acquire the "Core Competencies for Healthcare Professionals in Clinical Ethics" crafted by the Ministry of Health-appointed National Ethics Capability Committee to enhance the capacity of healthcare professionals in clinical ethics.This course will be conducted for two separate half-day sessions online via Zoom.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the heavy burden women bear in their multiple roles; yet awareness of these 'invisible jobs' continues to lag. This has driven further gender inequalities in the workplace, with long term implications in women's careers and livelihoods.
Join us for a timely hour of talks and a panel discussion with our three distinguished speakers to explore these issues. Our speakers share their experiences, their research, and their plans, and hopes for the future to achieve equity in academia.
The mission of Women in Science and Healthcare (WISH) and Equal Opportunities & Career Development (EOCD) is to create an environment and shape a culture that advances gender equality.
