The Organising Committee of the 14th International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation (ICCEC) invites you to submit abstracts that address the conference main theme or any of the sub-themes.
Main theme: Clinical ethics in translation: linking practice with research, learning and policy Sub themes: - Ethical challenges in the clinic: an impetus for research and education: Emerging challenges for clinical ethics include the use of innovative and unlicensed treatments, bedside rationing, and boundaries between health and social care - Theoretical foundations and conceptual frameworks of clinical ethics support: Will developing and articulating theoretical foundations for clinical ethics help to strengthen practice? What counts as a theoretical foundation and is it required? How can we foster dialogue between practice and theory? - Empirical ethics research: emerging from and informing clinical ethics practice: There are many questions that clinical ethics can pose for researchers. How can we identify and build on examples of high quality research to improve practice? - Translating clinical ethics across global contexts: How does clinical ethics practice, research and education translate across cultures and what can we learn from each other to improve our own practice? - Translating clinical ethics into advocacy and policy: What role should clinical ethics have in shaping policy at a regional, national or international level on issues such as migrant health, abortion or transplant ethics? Should clinical ethicists act as advocates for patients in the wider health care environment?
