Course Description:

Summer Seminar in Health Care Ethics​:
This annual one-week Seminar is an intensive, interactive introduction to the four-box method of analysis of ethical problems in clinical ethics, developed by Jonsen, Siegler, and Winslade in their book CLINICAL ETHICS. The Seminar also introduces the Core Competencies in Health Care Ethics Consultation. Lectures are designed to familiarize participants with basic definitions and arguments in each of the major topics of clinical ethics. In addition, the Seminar aims to provide participants with skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations and to assist others in doing so. Hence, careful attention is paid to methods of case analysis and to discussion of cases. The Seminar has always attracted a mix of participants that resembles the actual participants in clinical care, making it possible to share different, but complementary views.

Surgical Ethics:
This one-day conference employs the methods of ethical analysis taught in the Summer Seminar to analyze topics of special interest to surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and hospital administrators. Lectures tailored to surgical specialties define ethical principles and concepts. Multi-disciplinary panels and small group discussions allow participants to better understand the ethical debates that bear upon each topic. In addition, the conference introduces participants to skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations.

Conference Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
• Identify fundamental concepts and principles for the understanding of ethical issues in clinical care.
• Implement a method for analyzing ethical cases in clinical health care.
• Employ skills in decision-making for clinical cases that present ethical problems.
