Clinical Ethics Cases from the NMH Archives

In this presentation Dr. Neely will offer a sampling of diverse ethics case consultations from NMH over her past 15 years as ethics committee chair and consultant. These cases illustrate the complexities imposed by medical decision-making for a person who has no capacity to do so for him/herself. Additionally, they underscore the ways in which evolving clinical practice, policy and law can buttress or hamstring ethical analysis and action. The goal of this presentation is to familiarize attendees with the application of ethics to everyday practice of medicine in a tertiary care academic medical center.
