WMREF Ethics Conference to be hosted March 22

The 10th Annual Kansas Healthcare Ethics Conference, hosted by the Wichita Medical Research and Education Foundation (WMREF), is structured to stimulate discussion of real-life ethical issues. Healthcare students as well as the general public can benefit by joining the discussion at the conference.

Physicians, nurses, patients, family members, health care workers, social workers, chaplains and adult care home administrators are faced with ethical decisions in health care. Ethical dilemmas can occur in the delivery of health care with decisions about end-of-life care, scarcity of resources, ethnic and diversity issues, honoring religious decisions of patients, and the use of technology in today’s health care delivery. The conference looks at the new and intensified ethical dilemmas encountered in the face of a pandemic.

For the first time, healthcare students are offered registration to this conference at no charge. Physical therapy, psychology and nursing students are specifically encouraged to attend.
