You’ve Got Why should I take this course?, We’ve Got the Answers!

This micro skills course from the Royal College of Radiologists introduces ethical dilemmas in medicine and the law. We will look at ethical guidelines and codes of practice that regulate the behaviour of healthcare professionals and then examine the four key principles that underlie them. We will look at professional behaviour including honesty and examine when it's in the patient's interest to make a paternalistic intervention. Finally, this session will explore when ethical issues cast doubts on the instinct to save life.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
