Defining Moments in Pediatric Bioethics: Future Insights From Past Controversies @ Bell Harbor International Conference Center, Seattle, Washington
Jul 19 – Jul 20 all-day

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?
