Collaboration from Crisis—Bioethics in Chicago During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic a myriad of ethical challenges have come to the fore. Just a few examples include questions about how to distribute scarce resources such as ventilators or new therapies such as Remdesivir. Healthcare in Chicago is notable for having many different hospitals and healthcare systems. Bioethics in Chicago is notable for the depth and breadth of experts active in considering new and challenging bioethical issues. This talk will describe how a group of bioethicists from different settings and healthcare systems in Chicago came together to think about and work through the bioethical challenges presented by COVID-19, what challenges the group faced, and plans for the group going forward.
