NOVEMBER 12, 2014 – The MacLean Center, which pioneered the formal study of clinical medical ethics in the early 1980s, has the world’s largest clinical medical ethics program for health care providers. The center’s two-day Dorothy J. MacLean Fellows Conference, which is free and open to the public, is one of the center’s hallmarks.
This year’s conference includes panel presentations by ethics leaders addressing wide-reaching topics such as Ebola management in U.S. hospitals, community-based clinical ethics, surgical ethics, end-of-life care, the ethical implications of concierge medicine, and organ donation and transplantation. About 500 people are expected to attend one or both days of the conference.
