Nursing Ethics

Third Annual Dvorak Ethics Conference-
“When Professional and Personal Dilemmas Collide”

Clinical ethics cases can be very complicated and multifaceted. This conference brings together a community of health care clinicians such as ministers, ethicists, physicians, nurses and others to learn about ethical issues encountered in the healthcare environment. This year’s conference is focused on professional and personal dilemma’s.  We will have some very stimulating presentations and discussions.  We invite you to join us at this year’s annual Dvorak Clinical Ethics Conference 

This conference on clinical ethics is presented using a didactic/discussion approach where you and your peers will learn about some particularly challenging ethical dilemmas in the clinical setting and how they were managed.  As always there will be stimulating discussions.

The Niehoff School of Nursing and the Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics at Loyola University Chicago are committed to the multi-disciplinary education and training of healthcare professionals who conduct ethics consultations and sit on ethics committees.  We look forward to you joining us this year at the Ethicvs Conference!
