Eye on Ethics: When Ethical Standards Collide
Department (Manual Entry)
School of Social Work
Interprofessional collaboration is vitally important, especially when it advances clients’ interests. A potential challenge, however, is that the respective professionals’ ethical duties may conflict. If and when such conflicts arise, social workers have a moral duty to seek a reasonable solution that adheres to social work’s ethical standards. This may require perseverance, discipline, and principled creativity.
