Clinical Bioethics Course
June 8, 2016 - June 10, 2016
This intensive course is designed for members of ethics committees and others interested in ethical aspects of clinical practice. Knowledge of common ethical problems and dilemmas in medicine, and strategies to address them will help participants increase their competence in addressing ethical questions in medical care. The combination of lectures, case discussions and seminars cover core information about ethical theories, principles, and methods, key bioethics cases from US courts, evolving standards for ethics consultation, and areas of clinical ethical controversy and consensus.
Faculty for the course are drawn from the Center for Bioethics at Harvard Medical School and from the Harvard-affiliated hospitals and institutions who are experts published in the specialty areas in which they teach, including bioethics, moral philosophy, medicine and health care.
