NECC Healthcare Ethics Educators Course for Nurses

NECC Healthcare Ethics Educators Course for Nurses

This 3-part blended course has been approved by the MOH-appointed National Ethics Capability Committee (NECC) as a train-the-trainer programme. Participants are required to complete the online modules and attend both workshops to qualify for the NECC subsidy to attend this course for free and have deemed completed the course.

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a Certificate of Completion from CENTRES, Centre for Biomedical Ethics, National University of Singapore. They will have the knowledge and skills required to teach their colleagues the NECC Core Ethics Programme, and will be expected to do so in the future.

Part 1: Online Clinical Ethics Modules - from early Jan 2020

The topics for the online modules are: Methods and Principles, Consent and Capacity, End of Life, Communication and Documentation, and Other Contextual Concerns. The duration of each module is about 20 to 30 minutes.

Part 2: Core Concepts in Healthcare Ethics - 20 Jan 2020, 8.30am - 5pm

This workshop will provide participants with a foundational understanding of healthcare ethics. The topics covered include professionalism, collegiality, professional accountability and governance, consent, conflict of interest, confidentiality and privacy, and professionalism. This interactive workshop will engage participants through clicker question and answer sessions, and in-depth case discussions.

Part 3: Analysing, Using & Facilitating Case Narratives in Healthcare Ethics Education - POSTPONED, tentatively Dec 2020

This two-day programme will explore the analysis and use of cases in teaching and learning about healthcare ethics. This will include key aspects of the law in healthcare decision-making. The participants will learn how to facilitate ethics case discussions amongst their peers. Participants will be assigned prereadings and assignments that require preparation outside of class time.

Note: The above-mentioned workshop will no longer be a 2-day in-person workshop. We’re looking into converting it into several online sessions of 3 – 4 hours each, over two or more days. Tentatively, these will be held in Dec 2020.
