Episode 4: Ethical Decision-making (Part 1)

While John's introduction indicates the podcasts will be conversations, Episode 4 is a monologue. This episode provides didactic material about ethical decision-making, which does not lend itself to a conversation.  The importance of this podcast and Episode 5 is to set up vignette analysis in future podcasts.  Everyone needs to be on the same page in order to apply ethical decision-making in instructional or real life situations.

At the end of this podcast, the listener will be able to:

1. Describe the differences between ethical and clinical decision-making,
2. Outline the Acculturation Model, and,
3. List the five foundational principles for ethical decision-making.
