Code of Ethics
Health Med. Training Solutions considers each learner / practitioner should uphold the highest ethical standards in the industry.
Ethical Responsibilities to Patients
Health Med. Training Solutions places the utmost importance on patient safety. So a learners responsibility is to promote the health, wellbeing, and aesthetic goals of the patients only in practice settings that promote the highest standards of client safety. Additionally, consideration of professional limitations is the personal responsibility of each individual, without exception.
After the successful completion of the eLearning and/or training, members should only practice based on what they learnt using scientific methods. They should exercise careful judgement and take responsible steps to ensure the competence of their work and to protect clients from harm.
- A practitioner can choose whom to serve. Once the decision has been made mutually, the service should be provided to clients only in the context of informed consent.
- Photographs or other media format consents should be clear and specific and should inform the patient of the purpose of the photographs, the places where it will be used.
Practitioners are responsible for the client’s health and not just the aesthetic part and therefore should ensure that the required physical examination is done. The practitioner should also get informed consent from the client in advance of performing the procedure. This will help them reflect and evaluate if they really want to undergo the treatment / procedure.
Privacy and Confidentiality
A practitioner must respect the client’s right to medical and personal privacy. A member should protect the confidentiality of the client when responding to requests from the media. A practitioner should not disclose confidential information, personal health history or personal identifiers for training purposes unless the client has consented to such disclosure. In response to a third-party request when the client has first revealed personal health information to such third party, but only to such third party and only to the same extent as first revealed by the client.
A member should keep records of the sessions in a confidential and appropriate way and the records about the clients should be available for their inspection.
Conflicts of Interest
A member must avoid conflicts of interest that interfere with the exercise of professional discretion and impartial judgment. A member should inform clients when a real/potential conflict of interest arises and take reasonable steps to ensure that any treatment decisions are motivated solely by the client’s best interests. A member should not take unfair advantage of any professional relationship or exploit clients to further one’s personal, religious, political or business interests.
Practitioner’s Support and Further Education
Each practitioner carefully monitors the limits of their own competence and confines their work within these limits. We commit ourselves to maintain and extend our knowledge and skills appropriate to our practice; getting extra support and supervision as required; pursue our personal growth, spiritual practice and the fulfilment of our personal needs outside our Medical, TCM, Dental, Aesthetic and Holistic health practice.
Advertising will be confined to descriptive statements about services available and details of methods and qualifications, without comparative evaluation or extravagant claims about the efficacy of our practice method.
Practitioners should always:
- Act in the best interests of your clients and treat them with respect. Take responsibility for your actions.
- Respect other practitioners and health professionals.
- Practice only within the limits of your competence.
- Make sure your behaviour does not damage your profession’s reputation.
- Observe confidentiality. Practice within the law. Maintain high standards of hygiene.
- Maintain and develop your knowledge and skills.
- Ensure if you are working with the public that you have obtained the necessary insurance.
- Must not mislead your clients or make any false claims of your skills and abilities.
