COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The two clinical cases presented here explore ethical dilemas in optometric care. The first case, "Selling Sight", explores conflict of interest between the Optometric Oath and caring for a less affluent patient in a clinical setting by a non-owner optometrist. The second case, "Midbrain or Malingering", discusses care for a patient of the age of medical consent in the foster care system. This course is pending approval to meet the biannual ethics requirement for the Oregon Board of Optometry.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • To present a case involving ethical challenges of treating a minor of the age of medical consent in the foster care system
  • To weigh the possibility of malingering versus symptomatic neurological disease
  • To introduce consequentialist theory and applications to the Optometric Oath
  • To explore ethical concerns of interpreted exams and less-affluent patients
  • To discuss financial conflicts of interest with regard to optometric practice ownership
