This workshop consists of 3 modules which may be conducted independently or in combination with small or intermediate sized groups of medical students. All use challenging reproductive health scenarios as case material.
The first module begins with two short trigger videos followed by structured discussion to provide an introduction to the core ethical issue of conscientious refusal, the limits of conscientious refusal in providing quality health care and the connection between ethical breaches and errors in communication skills.
The second module consists of a private values clarification exercise which may be further augmented with discussion.
The third module uses the helping trios role play technique to allow learners to practice the handling of ethical conflict with patients seeking objectionable medical interventions.
The workshop was designed as an instructional tool to foster development of the competency of non-directive pregnancy options counseling, set as a "does" level for third year medical students by the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics in its 9th edition curricular objectives.
The workshop was used in the obstetrics and gynecology clerkship over three academic years with more than 300 students. Positive student assessment of the workshop has been separately published.
