About the Consultancy
Ethics Consultation Apprenticeship ProgramThere is a growing recognition in the field of ethics consultation that training programs and workshops, no matter how excellent, may within a short time be lost to memory in the midst of a health care professional's daily work. In order to better assure the continual cultivation of the moral underpinnings, norms and standards of the consultation endeavor, an extended period of mentoring and tutelage is required. This insight is only now emerging in a strong way. Our faculty are very much in support of this movement toward a formal "apprenticeship", and we support the associated concepts of consultant certification and credentialing.
We believe a period of at least one year should be allowed, following the initial Consultation workshop, for this apprenticeship. Its constitutive elements include the following for each participant in the program:
Obviously, to provide such a comprehensive program requires a significant investment of faculty time. However, we at the Consultancy are greatly interested in tracking the effectiveness of this apprenticeship program. We would hope to include your attendees in a formal study which might yield significant insights on the merits of the approach, as well as indicators for its improvement.
We will develop an estimate of faculty time depending upon the number of participants, in a manner sufficiently flexible to assure that each participant does indeed receive both individual and group mentoring in the process. Our fees average $75 per hour, well below standard professional fees for such services. The consultancy assures faculty participation as follows:
At the conclusion of the Program, each participant will be certified by the Consultancy, and credentialed for ethics consultation by their institution. We look forward to your involvement in the Ethics Consultation Apprenticeship Program.
