Course Description:
This course is based upon a journal article from  The American Journal of Bioethics, which is available on the US National Library of Medicine website as an open access article at the following link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2673806/
 
This article describes a research project designed to investigate the relationship between ethics education and the use of ethics resources, confidence in moral decision making, and moral action in practicing nurses and social workers in the United States. There were 1215 respondents in this survey who were predominately Caucasian and female. The results indicated that those with professional ethics education or continuing education in ethics were more confident in their moral judgments, more likely to use ethics resources and moral likely to take moral action.
 
This article includes survey research, and if you do not like reading research, you may not like the course material. However, it is straight forward and fairly easy to read material and provides the licensed professional with factual information about the utility of ethics training in social workers and nurses. Since ethics is the most commonly required subject for continuing education in licensed professionals, this survey provides important information. 
 
This ethics course is useful for psychologists, social workers and professional counselors who practice and need ethics continuing education. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of ethical principals in practice. 
 
Authors: Grady, Danis, Soeken, ODonnell, Taylor, Farrar and Ulrich
