Traditional approaches to teaching professional and interprofessional ethics may not support multiple voices and viewpoints. Ethics educators encounter numerous challenges inherent to the field of ethics, including multiple theories, differing terminology, and a variety of decision-making approaches. There is no common language, theory, or approach in ethics education and practice. The lack of a "moral commons" is a significant challenge for ethics education. An additional barrier is that many ethical approaches focus on individual moral agency without consideration for the collective ethical obligations of the team, or team moral agency.

This session will introduce the Five-Dimensional Dialogic Model for Interprofessional Ethics (FDDM). FDDM delineates a process for establishing a moral commons as a foundation for addressing team moral agency. Participants will identify their preferred ethical tradition and language, and analyze an interprofessional ethics vignette using the 4 major ethical traditions: rule-based, ends-based, virtue-based, and narrative-based. Session participants will then use FDDM to respond to interprofessional ethics cases (informed consent and unsafe discharge). The session will conclude with a discussion of the challenge of cultivating the moral commons and moral discourse for interprofessional teams in today's health care environment.

1. Summarize the elements of the Five-Dimensional Dialogic Model of Interprofessional Ethics.

3. Apply FDDM in moral deliberation related to an interprofessional ethics case.
