Description

A New Ethics Webinar Series Co-sponsored by the Catholic Health Association in cooperation with
Georgetown University Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics
Loyola University Chicago Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics and Healthcare Leadership
Saint Louis University Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics

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). 

Session 2:Potential Alternative Pathways in Caring for Unrepresented Patients Who Are Unable to Speak for Themselves
Co-sponsored by the Catholic Health Association in cooperation with Loyola University Chicago Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics and Healthcare Leadership

How should we care for patients who have no legal health care proxy and have lost decisional capacity? Often, these unrepresented patients are subject to the assignment of a court-appointed guardian, who may not be the most ideal person to speak about an unfamiliar patient's best interests. This session will explore an alternative pathway, and the ethical constraints of this approach.
