  • Fri 24
    11th Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference – The Delicate Triangle: Responsibilities and Challenges in the Provider-Patient-Parent Relationship

    What do you do when parents insist on shielding their child from a diagnosis? Are there communication techniques that increase vaccination rates? If so, when does persuasion in the clinical context become manipulation or coercion? How do we avoid “implicit bias” in our language and treatment of families from different religious or ethnic groups? How and when do we inform the patient and parents when genetic testing reveals an incidental finding that has unclear implications? Join a distinguished group of bioethicists as we spend two days exploring these and other complex questions, through presentations and discussions that will be both challenging and illuminating.

    Date: Friday Jul 24, 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
    Location: Bell Harbor International Conference Center, Seattle
