Disgust and the Moral Community of Medicine

As one of the “moral emotions,” disgust has evolved from primitive responses to “poisons and parasites” and has been exapted to build cooperative, cohesive social groups of Us and at the same time distancing from Them. Can disgust be a useful moral emotion in supporting the Moral Community of medical practice?

A Short History of Hospital Advertising

Once thought to be unprofessional and undignified, advertising hospital services is now routine. Hospital advertisements must comply with Federal Trade Commission guidelines, but compared to direct-to-consumer advertising of prescriptions drugs, hospital advertisements are largely unregulated. Several prominent medical ethicists have called for new standards. We will examine a variety of hospital advertisement campaigns, the messages they communicate to patients about healthcare and the controversy surrounding healthcare marketing practices.

Integrating Healthcare Chaplains into Shared Decision Making

A cornerstone of patient-centered care is shared decision making (SDM) which pairs the expertise of medical providers with the values, beliefs, and goals of the patient. The majority of studies on SDM focus on the physician-patient dyad, with some attention to the role of nurses. Scant research has been conducted on the roles played by other members of the interdisciplinary team.

This talk will present original research on the role of healthcare chaplains in SDM. Findings suggest that chaplains are positioned to address three barriers to SDM identified in the literature: 1) The lack of attention to religion/spirituality by other members of the healthcare team; 2) The lack of attention to the patient’s story and values embedded therein; and 3) Medical culture’s fast pace, fragmented doctor-patient relationship, and obfuscating use of medical jargon.
