Center for Bioethics & Health Law 29th Annual Conference

Abstract: Implementation of available technologies may seem inevitable. Yet the personal, social, legal, and ethical implications of their use can and should be evaluated. Resistance to the so-called technological imperative—'if it can be done, it should be done'—may not involve rejection of a technology, but instead its judicious, carefully evaluated adoption.  

This conference affords participants an opportunity to learn about recent technological developments and to discuss their potential benefits and risks, and ways to mitigate those risks, including what role government regulation should play.  A goal of the conference is to enable participants to make informed choices about employing technological interventions at the individual level and to respond responsibly to technologies being implemented within healthcare systems and society.

Full conference program, registration, and continuing education information is available @ bioethics.pitt.edu/medethics2020. Questions may be directed to bioethics@pitt.edu.
