Effective communication in healthcare and ethics
As everyone knows, good communication is central to both health care and clinical ethics. This conference aims to present a variety of reflections on the role of communication in health care and ethics, and to encourage and model some practical communication skills that one can take away from the conference to include and build upon in one’s professional role.
Utilizing a variety of formats including case discussion, video presentation, communication exercises, and small and large group discussions participants will explore communication issues concerning a range of topics including pediatric and surrogate decision making, spirituality, cultural differences, family dynamics, and demands for non-beneficial treatment.
In addition, the idea of ethics and communication ties in with the role and goals of the Arizona Bioethics Network. ABN is a grassroots organization attempting to improve awareness and communication about healthcare ethics within the state of Arizona. We want participants to come away from the day with a sense that ABN can serve as both an intellectual and networking resource for healthcare professionals throughout our state.
