July 19: 15th Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference: Defining Moments in Pediatric Bioethics: Future Insights From Past Controversies
July 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm
Some medical cases not only test our beliefs and principles as pediatric caregivers, but also exemplify the vital need for bioethics as a discipline. This conference will examine the historic pediatric cases that have captured the attention of the public and the bioethics community, shaping the way issues in pediatric bioethics are understood and analyzed to this day.
Speakers will tell the stories of these seminal cases, providing historical and contextual background, as well as discuss how each case impacted philosophical theories, altered legal and ethical thinking and informed current medical and clinical ethics practice. Finally, we will examine the lessons that these important cases hold for the future of pediatric bioethics.
