This session’s focus on story, examining clinicians as technicians in framing stories of their interactions with patients and with colleagues, offers the learner an opportunity to examine how the methods and goals of the telling of clinical tales highlight ethical tensions and communicate how the parties address them in the context of illness and the provision of health care, permitting reflection on one’s own ethical approaches to clinical care.

Jointly sponsored by the UNC Center for Bioethics and the UNC Hospital Ethics Committee, Clinical Ethics Grand Rounds offers an innovative and interactive forum for engaging with ethical, legal, and policy issues of particular salience to patient care within the hospital. This series may fulfill requirements towards continuing ethics education in nursing*, social work, and other departments and divisions.  There are no commercial support or conflicts of interest to report. Education credits require attendance and completion of the evaluation.
