Cedarville University’s Center for Bioethics is partnering with the Northern Plains Ethics Institute and the International Academy of Medical Ethics and Public Health (IAMEPH) in a major academic ethics conference this coming June 6-8, 2019, entitled, Clinical Ethics and Conscience Rights. Keynote speaker will be Princeton political philosopher Dr. Robert George, a well-known advocate of conscience rights, who has advised the President’s Commission on Bioethics. Currently, he is the McCormick Chair in Jurisprudence at Princeton.
This is an academic conference, open to a wide variety of presenters: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, chaplains, political scientists, social work specialists, and many others interested in helping to define the nature of conscience claims. Please consider writing a brief abstract for consideration at the conference. The topic could be anything related to conscience claims in the healthcare arena, from a practical/clinical perspective or from a more theoretical frame. The deadline is Feb. 1st (flexible). Also, note that there will be a students’ forum on Saturday, with an emphasis on medical, nursing, or pharmacy students. Here is the submission link for all abstracts: https://digitalcommons.cedarville.edu/conscience_rights/
Whether students or faculty, papers presented may be chosen for publication in the December 2019 issue of Ethics, Medicine and Public Health, a peer-reviewed journal.
