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.

**Opportunities for onsite clinical observation will be available for attendees.**
