How should healthcare professionals balance the sometimes conflicting ethical demands of their vocation? Called to uphold patient autonomy while also avoiding patient harm, seeking patient well-being, and pursuing justice, healthcare professionals occasionally face situations where it’s difficult to choose a course of action that fulfills all these requirements.

Dr. John Patrick will discuss the meaning of these different ethical principles for the practice of medicine, focusing on how to act in situations where they seem to conflict.
