Does Every Health Profession Need Its Own Ethics

Jos VM Welie, professor of medical and dental ethics at Creighton University’s Center for Health Policy and Ethics, will deliver a talk titled Does Every Health Profession Need Its Own Ethics? as part of Duquesne University’s David Kelly Bioethics Lecture Series.

The event will be Friday, Dec. 3, from 3 to 5 p.m. in Room 324 Fisher Hall.

Welie studied medicine, philosophy and law in the Netherlands. His main areas of research center around issues of death and dying, care for chronic patients and dental ethics. His recent book is Justice in Oral Health Care: Ethical and Educational Perspectives.

The David Kelly Bioethics Lecture Series invites nationally and internationally prominent scholars for lectures at Duquesne each fall and spring semester on current and emerging topics in the field. The series aims to provide ethics leadership on the crucial issues in health care ethics today.

The Center for Healthcare Ethics, part of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts, has offered degree programs in health care ethics since 1996. Its vision is to provide global leadership in ethics, promote excellence in scholarship and train graduates academically and professionally to advance discourse on health care ethics in research, teaching and service.
