Session Description

Ethical decision-making is an integral part of a VR professional’s practice. On a daily basis, we are faced with ethical dilemmas that require thoughtful reflection and critical thinking. An ethical dilemma is a choice between two actions based on conflicting professional values; both may be morally correct and professionally grounded. Both may be right or good. It is this ambiguity that creates the dilemma for the VR professional.

To support a client centred approach to providing care and services, the VR Profession must understand their role and function in providing fair and equitable services  regardless of ethnicity or race, physical or mental ability, and diversity.

As VR Professionals we are committed to respecting our Clients right to self-determination and their rights to make choices regarding the services they may receive or choose not to receive.  The VR Professional will assist Clients to make care plans and life choices in keeping with the Client’s values, beliefs and Vocational goals within the VRA’s Professional’s vision, mission and values.  Clients, if capable, have the right to live at risk as long as their choices do not pose imminent harm to others, including their caregivers and health care providers.

Learning Objectives

The Participant will:

  1. Be introduced to the ethical decision making framework that is commonly used by regulated health care and other client services professionals;
  2. Learn how to apply the ethical decision making framework during a case review and information sharing purpose;
