Diploma in Bioethics

This diploma concentrates on ethics: like philosophy, ethics is in search of principles and universals. One could also say that ethics reflects on what is the good and how our lives are oriented towards it. A particular focus is given to bioethics from a Catholic viewpoint and examining the legal, philosophical and moral bases. This course is concerned with restoring and strengthening bonds between professionals, patients and families, not simply dealing with principles like bioethics. The teaching material makes use of case studies and explores how clinician-patient relationships/encounters have contributed to research on ethical issues.

The final course that makes up this diploma offers an introduction to a topic area that underpins the aforementioned teaching on ethics. We look at the authentic life of our human spirit or what our life is truly called to be. Without our participation in the life of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Trinity) through baptism, we cannot truly be Christian and without grace we cannot truly live a Christian life.
