Belmont to the Bedside: Translating the Principles of Ethics to the Practice of Medicine
Summer Workshop VIII
The Belmont Report (1979) is often referred to as the Bedrock of Bioethics. This Workshop offers the unique opportunity to revisit the principles stated in the Belmont Report though the eyes of one of its authors, the Program in Medicine and Human Values’ senior scholar, Dr. Albert Jonsen. We will focus on the relevance of the goals espoused in that document to clinical medicine in the 21st Century. Have the authors’ intentions been correctly interpreted and successfully implemented? How are the ethical principles applicable to the practical work of Ethics Committees making bedside recommendations?
The workshop faculty will discuss the significance and application of key principles which came out of the Belmont Report as they apply to clinical ethics situations, using case scenarios to teach the principles pertaining to ethics consultation cases.
The afternoon session will explore three clinical issues which are commonly encountered in the process of clinical ethics consultation: decision making for the unrepresented, obligations to the challenging patient and, assessing a patient’s capacity to express their values and preferences for medical treatments.
