Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course focuses on the core competencies for effective leadership in ethics committees and ethics consultation services. These will be illustrated and discussed through several practical ethical issues arising out of community practice and caring for patients in the advanced stages of disease. These ethical dilemmas can be particularly challenging to the health care team and require attending to the many dimensions of care, including medical, psychosocial, ethical and spiritual needs. This course addresses managing the care transition from disease focus to symptom focus in end-of-life care; how to effectively determine patient preferences and reasonable and appropriate goals of care given underlying disease and management of inherent uncertainty; advocating for a coordinated, consistent approach to ethical dilemmas to reduce their frequency of occurrence and stress among families, their providers and the community; and critical elements of effective communication during ethical dilemmas at the end of life.
