The 2019 Medical Ethics Symposium will be held Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Norton Healthcare Learning Center.

The symposium is free and is designed to educate individuals who currently perform health care ethics consultations or who would like to perform ethics consultations in the future, including members of hospital ethics committees, chaplains, physicians, nurses and other health care providers.

Ellen Fox, M.D., president of Fox Ethics Consulting in Washington, D.C., will present “Medical Ethics 101: Developing Your Consulting Expertise.” The course goal is to improve participants’ knowledge and competence in health care ethics consultation. Following the symposium, participants will be able to:

  • Identify potential gaps in their current ethics consultation practices.
  • Describe the steps and substeps of the clarify, assemble, synthesize, explain, support (CASES) approach.
  • Recognize when it is necessary to refer an ethics consultation to an advanced-level ethics consultant.
