The field of bioethics and healthcare ethics has both ancient taproots and modern off-shoots that provide a complex architecture of support. In this two-day conversation we will note how the discipline of healthcare ethics has evolved around several central themes, as a foundation for exploring what we might anticipate as the field of healthcare ethics develops.
Our primary topics over the two days include:
We welcome Thaddeus Pope,JD, PhD, Hamline School of Law, Minnesota as we explore 1) the nature of death at the 50th anniversary of the Harvard Report on Brain Death and 2) the enduring issue of what constitutes medically ineffective/inappropriate treatment. A “Call for Proposals” has been issued to engage scholars in examining the ethical implications of the use of metrics across healthcare, as well as in considering the effectiveness of Ethics committees and Ethics consultation. We will examine the use of technologies for telemedicine and the remote delivery of healthcare, as well as the use of AI (artificial intelligence). The conference will also explore how future care will incorporate respect for autonomy .
We welcome multidisciplinary healthcare professionals in nursing, medicine, social work, spiritual care, bioethics, health law, medical humanities, and other fields interested in exploring how deeply rooted the field of Bioethics and Healthcare Ethics is currently and where future work in ethics is projected to move.
