Clinicians’ religious characteristics may strongly shape practice, particularly with respect to morally controversial interventions. Religion-associated differences may then expose the limits of what we know as “medical ethics” and require us to look beneath the surface of clinical ethical disputes to examine the deeper disagreements that lead not only to arguments about which clinical interventions are ethical, but also to arguments about how one should do medical ethics in the face of such disagreements. Join us for this discussion of how religious traditions may call conventional assumptions and practices of medical ethics into question.

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. There are no commercial support or conflicts of interest to report.
