Description

Requests for treatment that are deemed medically inappropriate, often referred to as requests or demands for "futile treatment," constitute one of the most intractable ethical challenges in the care of patients. Various attempts to address the issue go back well over 20 years, yet it seems as if very little progress has been made in preventing, reducing, or successfully resolving these situations. This webinar described the efforts of SSM Health Care in St. Louis, MO to move beyond unsuccessful approaches to the challenge of "futility" and to develop an alternative approach based on an understanding of the root causes of requests for medically inappropriate treatments. It also reported initial results of a pilot program.

Presenter: Michael Panicola, Corporate Vice President, Ethics, SSM Health Care.

This is a recording of the webinar held on September 23, 2009.

Run time: 60 minutes

System Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 or above
  • Pentium IV - GHZ Processor
  • 256 MB RAM
