APPE – Ethics and Error in Medicine

Ethics And Error In Medicine Mini Conference

March 3rd 1:15pm – March 4th 1:45pm

Medical error cannot be completely avoided or foreseen. Nevertheless, it raises a host of ethical issues because of patients’ dependence on their doctors’ expert judgment and the effects of medical mistakes on patient safety and public health. Medical providers and hospitals may be ethically blameworthy if they do not take care to prevent mistakes, if they do not communicate honestly about mistakes, and if they do not respond justly and compassionately when mistakes happen.

APPE, in partnership with the Western Michigan University Center for the Study of Ethics in Society and the WMU Homer Stryker School of Medicine, will host a mini-conference in conjunction with the 2018 APPE Annual International Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

This mini conference will begin on Saturday with 2 afternoon sessions, and will continue with 3 additional sessions on Sunday. The preliminary program schedule can be seen here.

Please join us for the Ethics and Error in Medicine Mini Conference luncheon and keynote presentation by Dr. Martin Makary, Sunday, March 4, 11:30am – 12:30pm.

Conference attendees are invited to attend a reception Saturday evening from 6:30 – 8:00pm.

Cost: $75 (includes the reception Saturday, morning coffee break and lunch on Sunday.)
