The material is divided into three steps: 1) an introduction to ethics, 2) definition and analysis of the main ethical issues in ICTs focusing on ICTs in healthcare, and 3) a case study. The case study is intended to illustrate the kind of ethical issues at stake at the end-user stage by using probing questions. This method helps to not only identify the ethical issues but also whether these have been satisfactorily addressed in the development and design process of a given technology.
The ethical issues that are dealt with in the training material include design and usability, privacy and data protection, surveillance and autonomy, and informed consent.
