Event description

Description

Evolving Clinical Ethics: A Working UnConference is an opportunity for clinical ethicists to meet in-person to collaboratively explore novel and unresolved issues in clinical ethics. Building on the successful inaugural UnConference hosted by the Cleveland Clinic in 2018, the 2020 UnConference will give participants an opportunity to contribute to the evolution of our field's thinking and practice. Professional clinical ethicists who lead clinical ethics programs or serve on ethics consultation services will benefit most from this UnConference.

The UnConference will not include traditional didactic presentations. Instead, participants will engage in sessions with various formats including:

- Peer-to-peer solution-sharing sessions (structured, collaborative problem-solving in small groups)
- Lightning talks (brief plenary presentations with audience feedback)
- Fishbowl discussions (interactive discussions with expert panels)
- Marketplace of ideas (connecting with others to collaborate)

UnConference website can be found here.

Call for Abstracts

We are accepting abstracts through Sept. 15, 2019. Find more information about presentation formats and submit your abstract here. All abstracts relating to clinical ethics consultation will be considered, but we are particularly interested in proposals designed to:

- Generate strategies for expanding emerging clinical ethics programs and revitalizing established ones
- Develop novel insights into conceptually challenging questions raised by complex cases and innovations in clinical practice
- Analyze issues related to the professionalization of clinical ethics consultation
