April will see delegates attend a one-day conference, organised by the University of Liverpool School of Medicine, entitled Clinical Case Series: Ethics of Complex Decision Making for Applied Clinical Practice.

The aim of the conference is to enable delegates to discuss and critically reflect upon the interface of medical ethics with clinical practice in key health care issues. The conference is expected to stimulate discussion within the practice environment and prompt further engagement with ethical and moral theory in guiding clinical care.

Exploring the issues around managing ethical dilemmas of complex clinical decision making and the challenges of today’s ethical debates within medicine, this event is suitable for all healthcare professionals and anyone with an interest in this area. Delegates will be able to obtain RCP CPD Credit points for revalidation.

Speaker topics include: In the Shadow of the 8th Amendment: The Role of Healthcare Professionals in Changing the Irish Constitution, The Role of the Law, Lawyers and Activists in Shaping Clinical Practice and Euthanasia – care or killing? amongst many more. A full breakdown of the topics covered can be found here.

Attending this conference will ensure that delegates can critically reflect on health care policy and practice using key arguments within medical ethics and law as well as understanding the processes of using ethical arguments to make clinical decisions recognise and critically evaluate ethical problems in their current practice.
