KN 4 Ethical safety in care for older people
Prof. Helena Leino-Kilpi PhD, Turku University, FinlandHelenaL-K (2)
In care of older people, ethical basis of all actions have a special importance. In the literature, older people are often seen vulnerable, in need of special support, respect and ethically high-level professionals. Older people, however, have lot of strengths, rights and capabilities to manage their health and use of services. In this presentation, the concept of ethical safety is used, in connection of older people. Research in the field of ethical safety is limited, even safety itself has been one of the main interests for researchers during last few years. In older people care, safety issues investigated have mainly been those connected with physical environment, like preventing falls and adverse events in institutions. In the field of ethics, the main interest has been the issues of autonomy and dignity, which both can be seen also part of ethical safety. In this presentation, the concept of ethical safety consists of (at least) three elements: 1) realization of the rights of older people, 2) ethical competence of professionals and 3) ethical environment. Empirical research is identifiable mainly in the first one, ie. in the realization of rights, autonomy and dignity being examples of this. In ethical competence of professionals, some concept analysis has been made, but without connection to older people care. In ethical environment, the questions of ethical athmosphere and ethical leadership have been the main interest, but rarely in the services of older people. Thus, my aim is to discuss about the comprehensive nature of the concept of ethical safety, and to open a new landscape to the ethical discussion for improving the everyday care of older people in different contexts, including home care.
