Ethics in Clinical Practice through Social Justice Theatre

Presented by Tamara Lynne, Living Stages

June 15, 2013
8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
NCNM, Academic Building, Room 310

Ethical healthcare is equitable, does no harm, and respects the autonomy and self-determination of patients. Through theatre exercises, participants will have the chance to examine their own experiences relating to moments of oppression and ethical breakdowns in healthcare, explore what these mean for clinical practice, and begin to imagine what ethical, equitable healthcare look like.

Through interactive theatre, attendees will have an opportunity to:

  • Broaden understanding of the intersections between social justice and ethical practice

  • Deepen understanding of their own experiences of privilege and oppression

  • Explore systemic oppression and how it impacts the communities in which they work

  • Practice taking action to interrupt oppression in the clinical setting

  • Envision possibilities for just, ethical, equitable healthcare for all communities
