Description

Conflict is common in end-of-life situations. This session will be an interactive session in which we explore common conflicts that emerge between caregivers, patients, and care providers, and apply ethical principles to trying to approach these conflicts.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss an ethical framework for approaching conflict in health care
  2. Discuss the ethical challenges in balancing a patient or family’s hope for a miracle with health care providers’ concerns about providing care that is likely to be non-beneficial
  3. Discuss an approach to addressing families’ request not to provide pain medication to a person who appears to be suffering
