Dr. Buchbinder is a medical anthropologist specializing in the ethnography of clinical encounters. Drawing on the example of a new state law requiring clinicians to make specific disclosures to patients seeking pregnancy termination, the session explores how the law shapes clinical encounters in ways that complicate the ethical dimensions of both patient and institutional relationships. 

Jointly sponsored by the UNC Center for Bioethics and the UNC Hospital Ethics Committee, Clinical Ethics Grand Rounds offers an innovative and interactive forum for engaging with ethical, legal, and policy issues of particular salience to patient care within the hospital. This series may fulfill requirements towards continuing ethics education in nursing*, social work, and other departments and divisions.  There are no commercial support or conflicts of interest to report. Education credits require attendance and completion of the evaluation.
