This weekend conference will provide an intensive review of legal issues that occur in contemporary health care ethics. It is aimed at providing health care and legal professionals with an introduction to the frameworks and skills needed to navigate the complex terrain that occurs within various clinical settings as ethical dilemmas and legal issues arise, and potentially conflict. Participants will gain practical experience in discerning the differences and similarities between ethical and legal resolutions of conflicts that occur in treatment decisions, including advance directives, informed consent, assessing decision making capacity, selecting a surrogate decision maker, and forgoing life sustaining treatment. Many presentations will use a case-based approach to maximize audience participation, and a mock trial will demonstrate ethical and legal decision making in “real time.”
