Legal and Ethical Dilemmas in PMH Day 3: Reimagining Ethics in a Decolonized Ecosystem


Description
In this workshop hosted live on June 17, 2021, legal and clinical changemakers Brietta Clark and Thea
Monyeé held a conversation to reflect on one step in the process of striving to co-create a decolonized world.

In healthcare, ethics and law are viewed as important tools for promoting equity, dignity, and patient autonomy. Yet, ethical and legal rules are the product of the same social, economic, political, and legal forces that have allowed structural racism, reproductive injustice, and other forms of discrimination to shape society. Indeed, such rules have often operated as dangerous weapons that disempower and subordinate the very people they claim to protect – health practitioners and patients.

To effectively address health inequity affecting perinatal mental health, we must ask several questions: Who determines the ethics, laws, and systems within a society? What motivations underlie the production and deployment of rules? How do these rules impact the care relationship between practitioners and patients’ reproductive decision-making? And what barriers must be overcome in order to reform rules that undermine
health equity, dignity, and autonomy?

Objectives:
1) Identify ways that legal and ethical rules shape the professional-patient
care relationship in perinatal mental health, especially in marginalized
communities.
2) Identify successful strategies for promoting equity, dignity, and
autonomy in health care.
3) Demonstrate empowered use of culturally rooted strategies to
question and expand ethical codes and guidelines governing their
current service environments.
