I would be interested to hear of ethical decisions that clinicians face on a regular basis and if the resources that I outline in my presentation would be of help to you or your organisation.

This was a fascinating presentation on the complicated array of tensions faced by clinicians in following guidelines. What have you learned from this qualitative study that can influence the follow on study you are planning? Thank you

We have learned that the phronesis/virtue ethics based moral debating resources in the form of a film series and app work well in helping clinicians improve their ethical decision making. We have also learned the about the importance of inter and intra-professional debate in that process and so our next study will be asking inter-professional groups what it means to them to be making ethical decisions. Thank you for your question and if you want to know more then please do not hesitate to email me.
