Healthcare ethical dilemmas are rarely black and white. The gray area, where different perspectives intersect, is where difficult questions arise. What can we do as healthcare professionals to have more clarity in these unsure situations?
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Advancing ethical practice in health-care requires grappling with difficult, often complex ethical problems and dilemmas. In this new forum, a diverse group of ethicists, philosophers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will meet to address contemporary ethical issues in healthcare, and will discuss solutions to the most challenging problems for ethical practice and policy.
