Wolfson Children’s Hospital, in partnership with the University of North Florida and the Florida Bioethics Network, presents the Eighth Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference.
With talks on pressing issues by experts in the field, the conference will serve as fertile ground for the development and elucidation of best practices in pediatric bioethics. This conference will include sessions on topics such as “medical futility,” “grappling with moral distress,” and “ethical issues in childhood immunizations.”
Why You Should Attend
Ethics committees, healthcare practitioners and public policy experts are consistently faced with difficult ethical challenges. This conference will provide education surrounding such challenges, and an opportunity to engage peers from across the region to learn what others are doing to cope with the ethical issues that arise in pediatric health care.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for physicians, nurses, social workers, clergy, psychologists, health administrators, occupational therapists, speech therapists, pediatric mental health workers, pediatric specialists, medical students, nursing students, ethicists, philosophers, and others with an interest in pediatric bioethics.
