from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM
Dr. Ubel, MD, is the Jack O. Blackburn Distinguished Professor of Marketing, Fuqua School of Business and Professor of Public Policy, Duke University.
Dr. Ubel is a physician and behavioral scientist whose research and writing explores controversial questions regarding the role of values and preferences in health care decision making both “at the bedside” and in policy decisions. Dr. Ubel’s talk will address the patient empowerment movement, barriers to shared provider-patient decision making, and the relevance of behavioral science for understanding limitations on informed consent. Jointly sponsored by the UNC Center for Bioethics and the UNC Hospital Ethics Committee, the Clinical Ethics Grand Rounds series offers an innovative and interactive forum for engaging with ethical, legal, and policy issues of particular salience to patient care within the hospital.

We are grateful to our additional sponsors: Nursing Professional Development, Hospital Legal Department, and Clinical Care Management
