COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
Summer Seminar in Health Care Ethics
Monday, July 29 - Friday, August 2, 2019
This annual one-week Seminar is an intensive, interactive introduction to the four-box method of analysis of ethical problems in clinical ethics, developed by Jonsen, Siegler, and Winslade in their book CLINICAL ETHICS. The Seminar also introduces the Core Competencies in Health Care Ethics Consultation. Lectures are designed to familiarize participants with basic definitions and arguments in each of the major topics of clinical ethics. In addition, the Seminar aims to provide participants with skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations and to assist others in doing so. Hence, careful attention is paid to methods of case analysis and to discussion of cases. The Seminar has always attracted a mix of participants that resembles the actual participants in clinical care, making it possible to share different, but complementary views.
