It’s the Organization!

ICCEC 2019’s conference theme – addresses the fact that clinical ethics takes place in a highly professional and institutionalized context. Clinical ethics and consultation is a practical endeavor. It takes place in an institutional setting, be it the hospital, nursing home, hospice, or mobile healthcare service. Practicing ethics in a clinical institution is different from reflecting on ethics in pure academia. It poses opportunities for ethically significant encounters with multiple stakeholders as well as challenges in facing the pressure of real-life engagement in an organization. ICCEC 2019 will focus on this intersection of practice and institution in clinical ethics and consultation.
