As teaching in ethics, you can join the IFT committee (International Forum of Teachers of Ethics, Bioethics and Medical Law) of the UNESCO. The objectives are to promote the quality of the ethics and bioethics teaching in education and to determine principles and approaches from the development of the research, the exchanges and the debates. If you wish to join this committee you can send an application for membership and your CV to:

Your application will be examined by the president and the director who will let you know if your application is retained.


The participants in the workshop worked together, from the proposed theoretical elements, to answer these questions:

– Train the students in ethics: why, what, how, who, challenges, What’s about teacher’s preparation?

– What’s about the feasibility, acceptability of the best practices in nursing ethics education?

– Do we need to identify the competencies in ethics that a nurse educator need to have? Yes, because, if so why? No, because, if so why?

The results of these exchanges will be soon published.
