W19-84 MORAL AND ETHICAL TENSIONS IN MEDICAL CARE
Thursdays: 1-2:20 p.m.
4 Sessions: Feb. 7-Feb. 28
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Maurice Pickard

Moral and ethical principles often come into conflict in today’s medical practice. Tensions arise among patients, their advocates, care providers, and institutions such as medical facilities, insurance companies, and the law, because of perceived injustices or issues of harm or autonomy. A resolution that respects the values of an informed patient is the hoped-for outcome. In this course, many areas will be open for discussion, including end-of-life decisions, the pros and cons of genetic knowledge, the opioid epidemic, and using humans in medical research. The class will be taught in lecture style, but questions from the audience are welcomed and encouraged.
Silver Member: $70; Gold Member: $63.
