2018 Carol Carefang Nursing & Healthcare Ethics Conference – Advancing Ethical Practice: Exploring the Gray Areas
July 19, 2017
Healthcare ethical dilemmas are rarely black and white. The gray area, where different perspectives intersect, is where difficult questions arise. What can we do as healthcare professionals to have more clarity in these unsure situations?
Advancing ethical practice in health-care requires grappling with difficult, often complex ethical problems and dilemmas. In this new forum, a diverse group of ethicists, philosophers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will meet to address contemporary ethical issues in healthcare, and will discuss solutions to the most challenging problems for ethical practice and policy. The first biennial Carol Carfang Nursing & Healthcare Ethics Conference, sponsored by the Duquesne University School of Nursing, includes three days of speakers, panels, and presentations, as well as receptions and other opportunities to meet, greet, and discuss with a wide array of professionals interested in healthcare ethics. Please join us in Clearwater, Florida in February for this unique opportunity.
