Clinical medical ethics conference planned in September
IU School of Medicine Aug 01, 2019
Ethical issues are ever-present in clinical communication. The 2019 IU Health Fairbanks Conference on Clinical Medical Ethics will engage with a variety of issues in clinical ethics, including the basics of ethics, communication, and critical care. This conference will be held on Friday, September 27 from 7:15 am – 4:45 pm, in Hine Hall (IP).
The Fairbanks Center provides services in ethics for clinical care providers such as clinical ethics consultation, medical ethics education, and ethics research and community service. This event will enhance the ethics competency of everyone who practices or reflects on patient care. Register here.
The conference is also great opportunity to learn about the Fairbank Center’s ethics fellowship, a nine-month, part time fellowship for health care professionals interested in clinical ethics. In this fellowship, physicians, nurses, chaplains, and social workers will be trained in medical ethics regarding patient care.
