Presentation Title: Principles of Professional Ethics

Speaker: Gary Pasquarell, PHD

Content Description: This lecture presents the attendee with a definition of professional ethics and describes how they are formulated as well as their impact on professional careers. The attendee will be presented with practical ways to apply ethical standards in professional decision making. Common sources of ethical standards are compared and contrasted as to their relative strengths and weaknesses.  The value of codes of conduct promulgated by professional bodies is emphasized, and several examples are provided. Some common views of ethical standards are presented and discussed in order to underline flawed thinking regarding ethical practice leading to mistakes and violations.  An extensive case study is presented regarding the Kansas City Hyatt Regency Walkway collapse.  This case study highlights the relative impact of technical flaws versus professional negligence in generating this catastrophe.

Additional: Will count for one Continuing Education Unit (CEU), equivalent of 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) in Ethics
