    The Intersection of Healthcare Ethics and the Law – Implications for Complex Cases

    Throughout the continuum of care individuals (children and adults) and their families encounter multiple points of decision making where clinical choices, patient safety, institutional policy and legal parameters intersect.   Clinical healthcare professionals, legal counsel, administrators, risk managers and other team members - work collaboratively – and often creatively - at these decision points to balance the clinical needs of patients with respect for patient’s preferences, and with the protective constraints of institutional policy and state law.

    During this conference we will address care decisions for individuals who may be moving between places of care – long term care facilities, home, hospitals, outpatient facilities, etc. – and the questions encountered around scope of practice, safety, adequacy of discharge plans.  Other primary issues will include: current practices when treatment is questioned as being “medically ineffective;” the ethics of “forced treatment” (e.g. use of restraints, psychiatric treatment, care for patients with eating disorders); care decisions for “unrepresented patients” (those without decision making capacity or surrogate decision makers).  We will also address how ethics consultants and ethics committees work with legal counsel, risk managers, compliance officers, administrators and others responsible for institutional policy/practice.  What are the implications for ethics consult EMR notes?  What current legal cases should every ethics consultant be following?  What current public policy issues, including proposed legislation, have implications for the ethical care of patients?
