In our ongoing commitment to provide timely, relevant information about emerging issues for Catholic health care, the Catholic Health Association is offering a monthly series of webinars to address and clarify critical ethical issues in caring for patients and families in Catholic hospitals, long-term care facilities and medical centers nationwide.

Each 45-minute session will examine the implications of a specific critical issue in clinical and organizational ethics in the context of Catholic Social Teaching and the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services (ERDs).

All sessions are being offered as a complimentary service to ethicists, clinicians, residents, health executives, graduate students in moral theology and health care ethics and all persons who are interested in Catholic health care ethics.

Each 45-minute session will examine the implications of a specific critical issue in clinical and organizational ethics in the context of Catholic Social Teaching and the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services (ERDs). Moderators of the series are Brian M. Kane, Ph.D., CHA senior director, ethics; and Nathaniel Blanton Hibner, Ph.D., CHA director, ethics.

Participants will receive recordings of the programs for ongoing reference and education for ethics committees, medical professionals, health executives and graduate students.
