Healthcare ethics has become part of the standard curriculum of students in the health professions. The goals of healthcare ethics education are to give students the skills they need to identify, assess, and address ethical issues in clinical practice and to develop virtuous practitioners. Incorporating the medical humanities into medical school, for example, is intended to foster empathy and professionalism among students and to provide mechanisms for enhanced physician well-being. Yet, despite the long-standing inclusion of the humanities in nursing curricula, increases in the amount and kinds of scientific knowledge essential for clinical practice has resulted in the erosion of the ?humanistic arts? from nursing education. One potential solution to this challenge comes with the increase in inter-professional education, where students in a variety of healthcare professions programs come together to learn about issues common to all healthcare fields.
