Medical Ethics Workshops

Customized to Your Organization’s Needs

Whether you seek to start a medical ethics committee, educate and strengthen an existing group, or implement a clinical ethics consultations service, medical ethics one-day workshops are a place to start.
Immersive medical ethics consultation workshops include interactive lectures and case discussions. Afterwards, participants will feel comfortable being able to identify clinical ethics issues, engage multiple members of the medical team, lead a clinical ethics consultation or meeting, document it properly in the patient chart, and improve committee structure and discussion.

• Bringing awareness of ethical issues in patient care
• Refining the ethics process
• Consultant training
• Utilizing limited resources for ethics services effectively
• Documentation of consults
