from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM
Jointly sponsored by the Center for Bioethics and the Hospital Ethics Committee, the new Hospital Ethics Grand Rounds series will offer an innovative and interactive forum for engaging with ethical, legal, and policy issues of particular salience to patient care within the hospital. Sessions will include presentations from preeminent experts in medical ethics, case conferences, and “myth-busting” of common misperceptions related to law and policy. During the 2011-2012 inaugural year, the series will focus on decision making for both child and adult patients related to serious illness including end of life.
Lunch will be provided.
One CNE contact hour will be provided.* This series may also fulfill requirements towards continuing ethics education in Social Work and for other departments and divisions.
We are grateful to our additional sponsors: Nursing Professional Development, Hospital Legal Department, and Clinical Care Management.
