Interdisciplinary Professional Ethics (7033HSV)

Professionals work daily in interdisciplinary settings to provide care and support to clients. Each discipline has its own ethics code and regulatory frameworks, and individuals may have different ways of interpreting them. To guide professionals, this course introduces the concept of interprofessional ethics for the social, health and human services and explores its foundations in human rights, moral philosophy and ethical theory. You will confront a range of ethical dilemmas that face practitioners, including privacy, confidentiality, boundary issues, accountability, activism and social media and gain the ability to make informed and appropriate decisions in relation to these challenges, using decision-making models to take justifiable action. You will also be capable of identifying the code of ethics and regulation that governs various professional disciplines, as well as their founding principles, and then analyse and critique these codes in relation to their reliability and applicability to professional integrity. You will engage in active communication and dialogue with fellow students and others from different professional disciplines to promote a shared understanding of values and ethical perspectives. You will also explore your personal value positions and understand how they can influence your professional practice. Pre-requisite: For students enrolled in either the MSW or the MSW/MMHP double degree, they must have completed 7034HSV Social Work Field Placement 1 or equivalent 7134HSV_Y2 Placement 1 prior to enrolment.
