Are Bioethics Personal, Professional, or Both?

From the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (July 1, 2020)
Presented by Susan Leclair, PhD
“Ethics don’t count unless they hurt,” is a common assumption in ethical theory development. What are you willing to give up? With a background of the major bioethical theories, this session will center around cases involving decision making as a citizen, family member, or professional in an acute care setting.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the contending ethical theories and give examples of each
  2. Assess an ethical situation when you find yourself in one
  3. Justify the choices with the theories in given situations
