ADVANCE CARE PLANNING TRAINING

Open to Everyone

You’ve probably heard these three words – advance care planning – and perhaps wondered about the process. If so, do yourself and your loved ones a big favor by attending this webinar! You’ll not only learn what advance care planning is, but why it matters and how to go about it.

Join us for one of these sessions to learn how you can ensure that the healthcare you want is the healthcare you get. You’ll learn ways to encourage friends and family members who may be reluctant to talk about these things. Most importantly, you’ll have the knowledge and resources to help you and your family improve their healthcare experience by having caring conversations before a health crisis happens.

Young Physicians on the Frontline
Real-World Perspectives on Healthcare
and Ethics During COVID and Beyond

The 27th annual Flanigan Lecture is held in honor of the life and work of Sister Rosemary Flanigan, PhD. It also coincides with the celebration of her 95th birthday.

In July 2008, Sr. Rosemary and Flanigan Chair Dr. Tarris Rosell co-taught an introductory course in bioethics to the inaugural class of dual degree DO/MA in Bioethics students at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. This would be Sr. Rosemary’s last course of hundreds taught. For this year’s Flanigan event we have invited four of those students, now physician-ethicists of more than a decade, to reflect on practices of medicine and ethics “during COVID and beyond.”

Safety & Efficacy in Emergency Authorization:

GETTING IT TO THOSE WHO WANT IT, RESPONDING TO THOSE WHO DON’T

This session examines the science and challenges in implementing the largest public health response to a global pandemic in the history of humankind. Basic ethical questions from genetic science in developing the most promising vaccines to justice concerns for those communities of color ravaged by the illness will be shared by experts and advocates in a panel format. The dialogue will touch upon our deepest and most profound beliefs about what we know and what we owe ourselves and each other.
