Workshop: Emerging Ethical and Legal Challenges in Chronic Neurological Conditions

med fom neuroethics.sites.olt.ubc.ca files 2014 08 NeuroEthicsCleveland.pdf
Wednesday & Thursday
October 8 & 9, 2014
Global Center for Health Innovation and Cleveland Convention Center
St. Clair Ave. NE & E 6th Street
Cleveland, OH

About the workshop:
The care of patients with serious chronic neurological conditions poses difficult ethical and legal dilemmas that extend beyond the acute care setting. This conference provides an opportunity for participants to engage in discussions regarding continuously emerging and profound legal and ethical challenges.
The topics for this conference include:

• Obligations to provide or withhold innovative or alternative therapies
• Societal and social issues in our new healthcare systems and the problem of stigma
• Nonepileptic seizures and other conversion disorders: A dialogue about emerging issues
• Public Health & Epilepsy: Considering driving, guns, and advocacy

The format of the conference will offer framework presentations by leading individuals from medicine, law, and ethics, followed by structured exploration and discussions. The paradigm of epilepsy will be used to highlight many of the ethical dilemmas, but there will be connections drawn to a variety of neurological illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, early Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, and Parkinson disease that span from pediatrics to geriatrics.

Target audience:
Neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, lawyers, advance care nurses, physician assistants, ethicists, psychologists, health services specialists, and social workers who address practical and ethical challenges related to chronic neurological conditions.

For more details, view brochure here.

Note: There are four symposia being offered in the same week, three of which are Epilepsy related. Please do not let this confuse you. The ethics conference is held in conjunction with the others.
