Clinical Ethics: Benefiting the patient
We are interested in the ethical issues that arise in clinical setting: In association with diagnosis, treatment and the organization and delivery of health care.
Our research looks at health care situations and the people in them. The research is carried out in close collaboration with health care professionals and provides updated knowledge for courses in medical and nursing ethics and training of medical doctor and nursing students.
We have studied ethical competence in health care management and examined if ethical rounds are good instruments for improving the ethical climate at psychiatric outpatient care. But we have also looked at moral distress in clinical settings and issues on prioritization within health care.
