The Bioethics Education program aims to promote a culture of ethically informed clinical decision-making and high ethical standards of clinical practice through a range of activities including:
Ethics education sessions are available in person or using Zoom / Teams. We can fit in with your regular department meeting dates.
The Bioethics Forum (formerly the CBC Journal Club) will host monthly ethics discussions and events to encourage and explore topics of interest to those involved in paediatric healthcare. The Bioethics Forum
will remain a relaxed and collegial get-together of individuals interested in
reading about, hearing about and discussing challenging and fascinating ethical
aspects of patient care.
We offer a mix of curated topics each month, for which we will provide a short list of journal articles and book
chapters to read and discuss, as well as some presentations from CBC interns
and those joining us on sabbaticals and overseas visitors (in the future!) on
topics of interest. You remain welcome to bring along your lunch or breakfast
to the meeting, and feel free to invite anybody who might be
interested in coming along. If you would like to join our Bioethics Forum mailing list, please contact our Education Officer, Dr Georgina Hall. Bioethics Forum dates and topics for 2022:
