Developing Skills for Healthcare Ethics Programs (DSHEP)

THE 2011 CONFERENCE HAS BEEN CANCELED

 

Developing Skills for Healthcare Ethics Programs is an advanced course for members of hospital ethics committees. Offered every spring. This three-day course introduces different models of ethics programs and differing models of services that ethics programs provide as well as enhances the skills of those institutional representatives already serving on ethics programs. In addition, it supplies participants with the tools to identify institutional areas where ethics programs might  enlarge their role. Program registrants are expected to have already obtained the basic education expected of most ethics committee members. DSHEP Faculty include members of the UVA bioethics program, the UVA Ethics Consultation Service, and members of ethics programs from other institutions.

For more information, please call or e-mail the Program Administrator, Carrie Gumm, at 434.924.5695 or cg2b@virginia.edu.
