Week 2 – Exploring the potential of a Human Rights Perspective to understand ethical aspects of the care of seriously ill children

Week 3 – Applying ethics to a public health issue, drawing on a Virtue Ethics Approach in relation to the care of people with learning disabilities

Week 4 – Consolidating learning regarding ethical decision-making in care in relation to a care of older adults scenario with reflection on ‘what is good care?’
