Upcoming Courses


The 11th Annual Kansas Healthcare Ethics Conference is structured to stimulate discussion of real-life ethical issues. Healthcare professionals as well as the general public can benefit by joining the discussion at this conference. If you are a physician, nurse, patient, family member, health care worker, social worker, chaplain, or adult care home administrator, you 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. This conference looks at the new and intensified ethical dilemmas encountered in the face of a once in a lifetime pandemic.
