In addition to this, with the increasing influence of medical aid companies on clinical practice and medical funding, this is becoming even more apparent.

In this Ethics webinar, the commercialisation of healthcare will be unpacked, and discussion held on the ethical considerations for institution owners, practitioners and patients.
