Preconference Workshops explore topics that are at the forefront of contemporary conversations in bioethics. The workshops are designed to be interactive and are an opportunity for collegial discussion. Workshops are on June 20th and 21st on Trinity's Deerfield (Illinois) campus.

 Conflicts in Medicine & Healthcare

Wednesday, June 20, 2018, 8:30am - 5:30pm

Clinical ethics consultants must be able to simplify and explain complex clinical situations, clarify and analyze relevant ethical principles, and identify and apply appropriate policies and laws. Even more, perhaps, consultants must develop and continually sharpen their skills in negotiation and conflict resolution. Most ethics consults are attempts to resolve disagreements involving multiple parties in such a way that each person feels respected and heard, all reasonable options are explored, and an acceptable solution is reached. The knowledge and skills needed to successfully navigate this challenging journey are most fully embodied in the art of mediation. Consultants armed with the methods and tools of mediation will find success in circumstances beyond their roles in clinical ethics, because conflicts commonly arise in various settings in healthcare. In fact, nurses, administrators, chaplains, and anyone involved in decision-making for medical care, will benefit from learning and applying these skills. In this workshop, participants will experience a practical introduction to the important role conflict resolution mediation plays in managing conflict. Through didactic sessions, role-playing, and specific feedback, participants will learn the steps of ethics mediation, acquire some of the tools needed for successful conflict resolution negotiation, and gain useful experience applying those tools in simulated negotiations.

 Controversies in Death & Dying

Thursday, June 21, 2018, 8:30am - 3:30pm

In our rapidly changing political and cultural landscape, controversies continue to abound regarding how we die and how we care for the dying. This workshop will provide in-depth updates on the ethics and policy considerations on the commonest end-of-life ethics dilemmas. These dilemmas will include physician aid in dying (otherwise known as physician assisted suicide and voluntary active euthanasia), palliative sedation, withdrawal of medical technology, advance care planning, and body and organ donation. These updates will go beyond a secular consideration and will present, in contrast, Christian appraisals of each, as well.
