Bioethics Goes to The Movies
Ethical issues for health care providers’ impact care at the bedside regularly. The increasing complexity of medicine often leaves providers looking for support and guidance from additional sources. Raising awareness of ethical issues and providing an opportunity to discuss potential sources of conflict for providers and patients and families is the overall goal of the program.
Attendees will watch the movie “The Savages” and together identify what the ethical issues are for all parties’ involved and potential resolution of conflict.
Nurses, physicians, social workers and clergy who may encounter ethical dilemmas in their practice.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Explore standards of surrogate decision making and in which situations they are appropriate.
- Discuss the surrogate selection process for incapacitated patients who have not previously chosen a decision maker.
- Identify how historical and cultural perceptions of older people may impede effective communication.
