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.
The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, in partnership with the Western Michigan University Center for the Study of Ethics in Society and the WMU Homer Stryker School of Medicine, will host a mini-conference on Ethics and Error in Medicine on Saturday and Sunday, March 3-4, in conjunction with the 2018 APPE Annual International Conference in Chicago, Illinois.
This mini conference will begin on Saturday afternoon and will continue on Sunday, concluding mid afternoon.
Conference attendees are invited to attend a reception Saturday evening, following the APPE Members meeting.
Submissions for individual or panel presentations for the mini conference are being accepted through the APPE EasyChair site.
See the APPE Conference webpage for more information and possible submission topics.

The 6th annual Academy for Professionalism in Health Care Conference will be held April 26 – 28, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
The theme of the conference will be: “Resilience-The intersection with professionalism”
Participants in the APHC 2018 conference will be encouraged to consider the quality of resilience, and to explore its connections to the development and demonstration of professionalism in clinicians. While there are many definitions of the term, we understand resilience to be the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, or significant workplace stress-all common components of a healthcare environment. The values of professionalism may benefit from clinician commitment to resilience, but it is unclear how or if this attribute can be cultivated.
The UNESCO Chair in Bioethics (Haifa) will hold the World Conference in Jerusalem during November 27-29, 2018. The aim of the Conference is to serve as an international platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
The Conference will be held in collaboration with the World Medical Association, the World Federation for Medical Education, the International Federation of Medical Students Associations, and other leading organizations. The Heads and the members of more than 170 Units of the Chair from all over the world will attend the Conference. Hundreds of experts from various disciplines are expected to join them and enrich the scientific program.
