Exploring the Legal and Moral Aspects of Patient Centered Care is a course that will address the importance of teaching and mentoring patient centered care as a legal and ethical imperative. The course will explore various models of clinical reasoning and problem solving with strategies for making these thought processes transparent to teach and mentor this critical skill for patient centered care while incorporating the importance of interprofessional practice as key to optimizing patient outcomes. Informed consent/refusal will be emphasized as a means for narrative reasoning to better engage the patient in the decision making process. We will also examine the impact of health literacy, risk, and overall challenges to meeting the standards of informed consent/refusal and providing optimal care. Finally, we will discuss strategies for securing and documenting informed consent/refusal, especially in relation to protecting self and your practice. Small and large group discussion along with case-based discussion will allow participants to apply content learned.
