Legal Perspectives of Health Ethics- Masters Level Module


Course Description

This is a core module for the Health Ethics MA and for the Resuscitation Practice MSc. This module aims to clarify the relationship between the two disciplines of health law and ethics and offers a framework to understand and apply the law to healthcare. Often there is confusion in separating a legal point from an ethical argument, with the two disciplines often overlapping in perspective. Human rights and the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998 are specifically explored. Other health law-related topics considered could be mental health, children, abortion, end of life, euthanasia, organ and tissue donation, genetics, and malpractice litigation, all dependent on the module participants. This is an optional module for the Clinical Studies MSc.

This module is intended to:
1. Enable students to explore and challenge their own values and beliefs in relation to health and social care law and ethics
2. Critically analyse the legal perspectives in health and social care and its application to those using and working within health and social care sector
3. Increase personal awareness of a variety of legal issues pertaining to health
4. Teach students to exercise initiative and take personal responsibility for legal issues when and where necessary
