Clinical Ethics and Conscience Rights Conference
Cedarville University's Center for Bioethics is partnering with the Northern Plains Ethics Institute and the International Academy of Medical Ethics and Public Health (IAMEPH) in a major academic ethics conference this coming June 6-8, 2019, entitled, Clinical Ethics and Conscience Rights.
Keynote speaker will be Princeton political philosopher Dr. Robert George, a well-known advocate of conscience rights, who has advised the President's Commission on Bioethics. Currently, he is the McCormick Chair in Jurisprudence at Princeton.
Please consider writing a brief abstract for consideration at the conference. The topic could be anything related to conscience claims in the healthcare arena, from a practical/clinical perspective or from a more theoretical frame. The deadline is March 1st. Also, note that there will be a students' forum on Saturday, with an emphasis on medical, nursing, or pharmacy students. Here is the submission link for all abstracts: https://digitalcommons.cedarville.edu/conscience_rights/
Whether students or faculty, papers presented may be chosen for publication in the December 2019 issue of Ethics, Medicine and Public Health, a peer-reviewed journal.
Montana Speaking Tour
Brittany Maynard's decision to end her life with the aid of a physician's prescription has brought physician-assisted suicide to the forefront across the United States. Montana has attempted to legalize it over the last five years, yet 67 percent of physicians oppose it. To help gain awareness in the Montana area, AAME CEO Dr. David Stevens completed a speaking tour in Montana that reviewed the history and roots of the moving for and against physician-assisted suicide, in addition to discussing the effect it will have on healthcare professionals, families, patients and society.
Listen to this talk by Dr. David Stevens from his Montana speaking tour.
