In this interactive lecture and discussion, participants will learn about the differences and the similarities between clinical and organizational ethics that health care staff serving long-term care homes must navigate, particularly in light of the new realities that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, which presented complex problems around issues such as visitation, testing, and treatment of infected residents. The ability to do the right thing for the right reason is imperative for long-term care homes, as this allows the homes to demonstrate behaviors and practices that reflect the integration of core values and mission, principles that were often challenged during the height of the pandemic. Participants will have an opportunity to review methods of ethical analysis that underscore the centrality of sound moral thinking and ethical decision-making as means to reflect upon the recent pandemic as well as prepare for future health emergencies.
