Clinical ethics support and education

The Centre's research in clinical ethics support and education is varied, and tracks current research interests of individual staff  members.  Topics range from how to understand and respond to moral distress, through to the ethics of medical education itself, and there is significant crossover with other research areas, including end-of-life, reproduction and methodology. 

Staff use their research in this area to inform the development of teaching and training materials, as well as various public engagement activities.
