Topic: Ethics as a Resource During a Continually Evolving Public Health Emergency

Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 4:00 to 5:30pm

 

The last few months have presented many challenges as transmission of COVID-19 affected individual patients, families, healthcare providers, healthcare systems, and our communities at large.   Healthcare providers have many stories to share addressing provision of care for increasing numbers of extremely ill patients, limitations on visitors, expansion of ICU bed availability, PPE access, an ever-evolving understanding of the virus, dedicated and weary staff, critical care resources, and more.   Ethics has been, and continues to be, a resource in decision making around resource allocation processes, effective and transparent communication, provider safety in providing treatment, healthcare equity, and more.
