Caring for patients’ needs often raises ethical questions. How can we ensure that patients and their families make informed decisions? What happens when there are conflicting opinions about the patient’s best interest? Who should decide what happens when a patient is unable to speak for herself?
These questions, and more, are at the heart of clinical ethics—and anyone who works with patients encounters them.
Join us for a free symposium and gain insights and practical advice on everyday ethical practice in the hospital setting, presented by expert clinicians and bioethics scholars.
