Providence Health Care, Annual Ethics Conference



Our Annual Ethics Conference is now SOLD OUT! Please send us your completed registration form to be added to our wait-list


SYNOPSIS


What do we mean when we use the word “culture”? What else do we mean when we use the word culture? How does culture relate to ethics in health care? How does culture relate to what we say, how we understand what is said, and how we act? How do we come to know our own culture and actions?

How do we accommodate patients’/families’ cultural preferences in clinical practice and how do we balance these accommodations with other ethical principles?

What do we mean when we talk about stigma? What does it mean to be the “other”? How do we continue to move forward with cultural and narrative competence?

In this full-day ethics education event, a diverse group of distinguished scholars will address the topic of culture and explore how culture shapes how we think and act, how we approach requests from patients/families for specific care requests, how we support patients living with stigma, and how we move forward towards an ethical end.

This fascinating day will challenge you to think about culture in a new way and approach issues in health care with a different perspective.
