Join us for our 26th annual conference, Taking Care: Perspectives for the End of Life. Distinguished speakers examine foundational concepts and bioethical considerations related to death, dying, and end-of-life care and decision-making. Plenary sessions focus on theological foundations, contemporary cultural practices surrounding death and dying, the role of faith in end-of-life care, disparities in care, cost of care and patient goods, and lessons from the Netherlands for physician-assisted suicide.
Workshops and paper sessions explore additional issues from among the wide spectrum of traditional and emerging bioethical topics, ranging from beginning-of-life issues and dilemmas in clinical ethics to reproductive and genetic ethics, disability ethics, emerging technology assessment, historical analyses, philosophical foundations, policy considerations, and legal implications.
The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity’s annual conference is a leading venue for Christian bioethical engagement, providing opportunities for equipping and education, professional development and academic engagement, as well as networking for professionals, researchers, policymakers, educators, and students across a variety of disciplines and professional contexts.
Identify the prospects and challenges for the evolving landscape of bioethical engagement within the context of shifting global and societal realities and advances in medicine and biotechnology.
Explore & discuss the ethical implications of recent developments in medicine, science, and technology with respect to our individual and common humanity.
Evaluate contemporary bioethical discourses in light of ethical approaches that include philosophical, religious, and other perspectives from the medical humanities.
Promote interdisciplinary engagement on pressing bioethical issues.
The Ethics Simulation Conference features evidence-based training the skills required to have difficult end of life conversations. The unique curriculum features the combination of embedded everyday ethics principles alongside hands on simulation based practice of concrete skills with a coach providing real-time feedback. With knowledge and skills gained through this course, participants will be equipped to have difficult end of life conversations in various healthcare settings, keeping the foundational ethical principles in mind.
The Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities and the Ethox Centre are pleased to announce the call for papers for the third biennial Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference. The conference will take place on the 1st and 2nd of July 2019 at Keble College, University of Oxford.
The ethical issues involved in the practice of Global Health initiatives and research are increasingly the subject of public and scholarly debate. These discussions have, however, tended to be dominated by a focus on particular diseases or interventions in certain locations and often with specific views of what constitutes ethics. Debate has also tended to be limited by insufficient engagement between different disciplinary approaches to this subject.
The Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference takes place every two years and addresses critically important ethical issues in the conception and implementation of Global Health. It aims to foster comprehensive multi-disciplinary debate moving beyond the parameters of disease, interventions and locations to attend to and engage with the many over-arching ethical concerns which characterise Global Health policy, practice and research.
What is the role of Humanities in the journey to the Fourth Industrial Revolution? How important are humanistic disciplines for the kinds of challenges we face in a coming era, supposedly defined by a highly dynamic phase of industrial and social restructuring, where the adaptive capacity of societies needs to be enhanced by specific skills, with techno-social dependencies. What is the role of the Humanities in building cognitive competences, and new professional paths? What can we bring to a new lexicon of: open innovation, co-innovation, co-creation, not only as the “convergence” of peoples, but also machines, with ontologies.
The special focus of the 2019 International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities seeks to unveil the importance of SSH disciplines to the major STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). The future of our planet requires co-creation mechanisms that re-conduct ideas in fundamentally different ways, in order to result in significant value to society, organizations, products, services and business. The conference will explore how the Humanities can contribute to this future.
Some medical cases not only test our beliefs and principles as pediatric caregivers but also exemplify the vital need for bioethics as a discipline. This conference will examine the historic pediatric cases that have captured the attention of the public and the bioethics community, shaping the way issues in pediatric bioethics are understood and analyzed to this day.
Speakers will tell the stories of these seminal cases providing historical and contextual background, as well as discuss how each case impacted philosophical theories, altered legal and ethical thinking and informed current medical and clinical ethics practice. Finally, we will examine the lessons that these important cases hold for the future of pediatric bioethics.
Join us for our 15th Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference where we will wrestle with questions such as:
- Are children with disabilities less deserving of life-saving treatments?
- Can a teen refuse life-sustaining interventions?
- How do we assess suffering in an infant?
- Should disability affect candidacy for a transplant?
This conference will be organised by the European Society for Philosophy of Medicine and Healthcare and the Centre for Medical Ethics, the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo. We may think we know what the terms ‘medicine’ and ‘health care’ denote and what activities should be classed as falling under each of them. Yet both medicine and health care have fuzzy borders in themselves and also overlap with other areas of human activity, e.g. in relation to the legal system or the cosmetic industry. This raises philosophical questions about how we should understand activities that are ‘at the edge of medicine’ and ethical questions about how we should evaluate such activities. Should the ethics of medicine supply the guiding principles or should activities at the edge be governed by other considerations. These and similar questions will be explored and addressed in the conference.
Cleveland Clinic will host the 2nd annual World Congress of the International Society of Uterus Transplantation (ISUTx) from September 6–7, 2019. On the afternoon of September 5, 2019, the institution will also host “Ethical Issues in Uterine Transplantation and Innovative Research in Reproductive Medicine,” an interactive pre-conference that will address leading ethical issues associated with the study and clinical implementation of uterine transplantation, with application for future innovative research in reproductive medicine.
- Research ethics and human subject protections in the study of uterine transplantation and future innovative research in reproductive medicine.
- The unique ethical landscape that exists at the crossroads of reproductive medicine and transplantation.
- Incorporating maternal-fetal ethics and neonatal ethics in discussions of uterine transplantation.
- Preparing for evolving ethical issues with advances in the science of uterine transplantation.
- Ethical considerations in the clinical implementation of uterine transplantation.
Bringing together national leaders in health care law, policy, economics, and administration to track implementation of the Affordable Care Act and other statutes, identify developments on the horizon, and offer bold, new ideas for balancing cost, access, quality and patient autonomy in our rapidly changing health care system.
BNAS 2019 explores the ethical and legal problems in bioethics in the context of the new challenges generated by the scientific discoveries of the 21st century. The aim of the conference is to facilitate the multidisciplinary approach of bioethical issues by uniting specialists from bioethics and its connected fields through the four main subjects of the conference: bioethics and medical ethics; ethical aspects in biomedical technology and research; bioethical education; bioethical committees.
The ELSI-LHS symposium is an interdisciplinary event that provides an opportunity for collaboration and learning among colleagues with diverse perspectives on ELSI-LHS, including technical infrastructure, informatics, medicine, public health, community engagement, law, ethics, and social science. The theme of the 2019 ELSI-LHS symposium is Precision Medicine and Learning Health Systems.
