There’s a fine line between professional and personal relationships. Where does one begin and the other end? Plan to attend the Eighth Annual Seattle Children’s Pediatric Bioethics Conference in Seattle, July 27 – 28, 2012 as we explore “The Thin Ethical Line: When Professional Boundaries and Personal Interests Collide.”A distinguished panel of experts will address a range of challenging ethical issues:
- Is it ever appropriate for a healthcare provider to “friend” a patient or parent?
- Should a healthcare provider perform procedures or prescribe medications for their own family members?
- Is “firing” a patient an appropriate response to parents who refuse to vaccinate their children?
- Is it ever okay for healthcare providers to lie on behalf of their patients?
Join us in the picturesque city of Seattle as healthcare providers and bioethicists from around the country share insights and opinions. To learn more or register, visit seattlechildrens.org/pediatric-bioethics-conference.
