Ethics Case Rounds to be Held November 21

Annette M. Mendola, PhD, Instructor and Division Chief of Medical Ethics from the Department of Medicine will lead the interactive Ethics Case Rounds on Thursday, November 21. How should a physician provide care to an incapacitated patient with no friends or family willing to make medical decisions when she is admitted to the ICU with a poor prognosis? Should goals of care focus on recovery or comfort? Ethics Case Rounds are hospital-wide conversations about scenarios that cause moral distress. Discussions are aimed at developing and sharing a framework for moral decision making. Ethics Case Rounds will be held from 11:30am - 12:30pm in Wood Auditorium.
