Whether you are relatively new to ethics consultation or have many years of experience in consultation, we invite you to join us Virtually for this discussion.
We will be joined by clinical ethicists from several healthcare systems. The format will be very interactive, with less “presentation” and more emphasis on discussion with participants.
We ask all registrants to identify topics you are most interesting is addressing.
Some of the questions we will likely discuss:
- What issues/concerns are you encountering in responding to ethics consult requests?
- Are adequate people resources available to support ethics consults? Do those covering consults feel they have the knowledge base/are equipped to provide consultation?
- Is a general approach or methodology for ethics consultation used at our organizations?
- What knowledge areas and skills would you like further information/training about? What would be most beneficial?
- What ethics consult issues have been most challenging to address?
- Do colleagues at your organization value ethics consultation as a resource? Why or why not?
- How does Ethics work collaboratively with colleagues in other services like palliative care, pastoral care, legal services, etc.
- Is it time for innovation in how to address ethical issues beyond calling for an ethics consult?
