In safety net hospitals, emergency and psychiatric health care teams work together in their assessment and care of some of our most complex patients, including those who need urgent expert services for their psychiatric conditions. Given the national shortage of behavioral health services, providers and their patients are left without the community resources that could avert needs for emergency care, or serve as resources upon discharge. Please join us for a discussion of how such shortages create ethical dilemmas for providers caring for patients in this setting.

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.

 **Attendees may receive certificates of attendance for their professional education records, but no CEUs will be offered for this session.**
