Event: HEC Ethics Roundtable discussion on Potentially Medically Inappropriate Treatment
Location: Emory Center for Ethics Room 150
Date: Thursday, January 28, 2016
Time: 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Registration: Must Register. Free Registration for HEC Members.
This discussion will continue the longstanding HEC conversation and national debate about what constitutes medically “futile” or “inappropriate” treatment.
Our primary goal will be to hear from all participants:
1. What is the current practice at your organization in dealing with patient care when the question of whether to continue treatment is raised?
2. Do you have any current policies or guidelines addressing this issue?
3. Is there interest in a joint project to address this issue across institutions?
Member organizations of HEC are invited to participate.
We will host those who can join us on campus AND have a conference line call in OR a Skype/Zoom videoconferencing option for those who cannot be on site. Please indicate, in your registration, whether you will be joining us in person or virtually.
** If you would like to include more than one representative from your institution, we would appreciate your helping us identify who your 2 to 3 representatives should be.
There is no charge for HEC member institutions to participate in this Roundtable.

This interactive workshop will address many facets of clinical ethics case consultation, discuss the current status of the national move toward certification for ethics consultants, and provide practice opportunities with case consultations involving standardized patients. In addition, several ethics consultants will share their experiences in providing consultation.
Through involvement in cases, participants will further their ability to identify ethical issues; describe skills and areas of knowledge important to the consult process; analyze cases using different models for ethics case consultation; describe how the narrative influences the course of consultation; determine practices that lead to shared goals in decision making; utilize ethical concepts in a mock ethics consultation.
This is a full, intensive day with many opportunities to put ethics consultation skills into practice.
