The Case Against AMA (Against Medical Advice) Discharges
This lecture will examine the ethical arguments against handling refusals of medical treatment and care plans that lead to discharge as AMA or “Against Medical Advice Discharges”. Drawing from challenging cases from the inpatient rehabilitation setting, we will discuss the merits and drawbacks of this AMA framework compared with alternate options for handling refusals that lead to earlier than anticipated discharges from an inpatient setting. We will also examine various ethical tensions that arise when addressing these refusals, as well as potential strategies to mitigate harm and honor dignity of risk.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
