Description

Emerging Topics in Catholic Health Care Ethics Webinar Series

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 6: "When a Child Dies: Ethics and End of Life Decision-Making in Pediatrics" webinar
Co-sponsored by the Catholic Health Association in cooperation with Saint Louis University Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics.

Decisions about medical interventions at or near the end-of-life are never easy, but when the patient is a child, these decisions can escalate into one of the most tragic, complex and unmentionable territories of healthcare.  Erica K. Salter, Ph.D., associate professor of health care ethics and pediatrics at Saint Louis University’s Center for Health Care Ethics and Department of Pediatrics, will explore the unique legal and moral context of decision-making for children at the end of life, including issues related to parental consent and child assent, responsibilities of clinicians, and ultimately, caring well for the dying child.
