Omaha, NE (PRWEB) November 29, 2010
Health care ethics is a hot topic, due to headlines about health care reform and continuing concern about disparities in the availability and quality of health care across the nation. The online Master of Science in Health Care Ethics from Creighton University educates students about the complex issues that make up bioethics, a field where there are few black-and-white answers. Redesigned in conjunction with an overhaul of Creighton’s site for online programs, the pages for the M.S. in Health Care Ethics now feature a new look, easier navigation, and updated content describing this innovative program.
The master’s in Health Care Ethics is ideal for health care professionals, as well as individuals working in related fields such as counseling, medical or pharmaceutical research, or pastoral care, who want to build their knowledge of ethics to be more effective on the job or who are interested in serving on policy-making committees. Students will develop an understanding of the role of ethics in health care, examine the various issues and factors affecting the field and cultivate their ability to explain, justify, analyze and write about ethical decisions in health care.
An interdisciplinary degree offered through Creighton’s Center for Health Policy and Ethics (CHPE), the M.S. in Health Care Ethics program reflects Creighton’s core Jesuit and Catholic values of conscience, compassion, and concern for the poor and marginalized with its emphasis on vulnerable populations and social justice.
More information about the Master of Science in Health Care Ethics, including the curriculum, career information, and faculty biographies, is available at http://www.creighton-online.com.
