Making Ethical Choices With Limited Resources: Lessons From Catholic Health Care

April 1, 2020
1 – 2:30 p.m. ET

As the rate of COVID-19 escalates across the country and concerns multiply about the scarcity of resources to diagnose and treat the virus, important questions are being asked about how decisions are made to use limited resources fairly.

Join us for this ethics webinar to examine the clinical and ethical guidelines for making these tough decisions.

Kevin Murphy, Ph.D., senior vice president, mission innovation, ethics and theology at CommonSpirit Health, will address the approach from a national system-wide perspective, and Leslie Kuhnel, DBe, MPA, HEC-C, division vice president, theology and ethics, CHI Health-Midwest, will discuss how policies and principles are applied within regions and facilities. Becket Gremmels, Ph.D., system director of ethics at CHRISTUS Health, will provide practical insights about creating policies and procedures for CHRISTUS Health, which has facilities in the United States, as well as in Central and South America.

There will be ample time for questions.

The webinar is provided as a service from CHA as part of our commitment to provide you with timely and relevant information during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CHA will record the webinar and share the recording with all who are registered — so please register today for this webinar — which is FREE for all.
