General ethics of conduct

A broad range of organizations consider ethics in a way that is relevant to arts in health. Examples include medical associations in different countries, such as the British Medical Association, American Medical Association, and World Health Organization, and different research bodies internationally, such as the American Sociological Association and British Psychological Association. Although there may be individual distinctions between different bodies, many of these ethical guidelines share concerns around the same topics. These can be broadly split into general ethics of conduct and specific ethics of practice.

Regarding general ethics of conduct, all people involved in arts in health interventions, whether arts professionals, health professionals, arts managers researchers, or volunteers (referred to here under the umbrella of ‘professionals’) should ensure that they follow important ethical standards in their research and practice. The British Psychological Association proposes four: respect, competence, responsibility, and integrity.
