This year’s theme: Ethics of the Patient-Doctor Relationship. At BRI’s 2018 Student Leadership Conference, we will explore the ethics of the patient-doctor relationship and dig deeply into who is responsible for which aspects of this relationship, and what is the proper and fitting role of government in this relationship.
This year’s conference offers two sessions open to the public!
Session #1 OPEN TO THE PUBLIC: Friday, 3/9 Luncheon Keynote: Medical Ethics and the Holocaust: Lessons From the Past | REGISTER
Session #2 OPEN TO THE PUBLIC: Friday evening Panel Discussion: Are the Tenets of Social Justice Compatible with the Ethical Requirements of the Patient – Doctor Relationship? | REGISTER
Throughout the conference, we will address today’s pressing questions:
What are the ethical requirements related to patient confidentiality—and how do mandates like HIPAA and EHRs affect them?
Is healthcare a right? (e.g. single-payer or Medicare for All)
To whom does a doctor owe loyalty? An employer or insurance contract, government (“state”) rules, or the patient?
What happens when regulations, government policy, and other third parties insert their priorities into medical decision making?
How does the concept of “social justice” affect the patient-doctor relationship?
There are examples throughout history where blatant disregard for medical ethics and the patient-doctor relationship are obvious and egregious—The Third Reich and today’s Communist China are just two examples. But what about when interference in the patient-doctor relationship is more subtle? What about ‘rationing,’ and ‘the greater good?’
We have an exciting lineup of speakers for you, including Drs. Jules Madrigal-Dersch, Bob Emmons, Raul Atal, Sameer Lakha, Twila Brase, RN—and more! We are also doing something a little different this year—we’re opening up Friday’s luncheon Keynote session to the greater OSU student body, as well as the standard Friday night panel discussion.
It’s going to be a GREAT conference. You won’t want to miss it.
BRI STUDENT LEADERS! Hold events, event, events so your chapter can win an award to send an extra student or two to the conference!
