Call for Abstracts: 11th Annual International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation
United States
New York

Call for Abstracts: 11th Annual International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation

ICCEC 2015

Improving Quality and Professionalism of Clinical Ethics Education and Consultation

Hosted by: The Bioethics Program of Union Graduate College & Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai New York City, May 20-22, 2015

The deadline for submission of proposals is November 17, 2014.

Recently clinical ethicists and professional associations have attempted to professionalize our field by developing codes of ethics and proposing formal accreditation of clinical ethicists. Simultaneously, training programs developed new methods for teaching and assessing competency in clinical ethics consultation. This conference offers an opportunity to discuss and analyze these developments.

Proposals are invited from everyone involved in clinical ethics or clinical ethics education: medical educators, medical historians, nurses, philosophers, physicians, lawyers, standardized patient actors, religious counselors, social workers, therapists, and anyone else involved. Proposals may include individual presentations, panels, poster presentations, workshops, and media presentations.

Why is ICCEC 2015 important? Clinical ethics consultation arose around fifty years ago as a separate voluntary activity on the part of what came to be called “hospital ethics committees” and “clinical ethics consultants.” As ethical issues grew more vexing, demands on time increased and the need for specialized knowledge became increasingly evident. In response, ethics training programs were developed in the US and worldwide. Recently the national bioethics societies in Canada, Europe and the US developed a consensus statement on the core competencies for clinical ethics consultation, effective methods for clinical ethics education, and codes of professional accountability for anyone engaged in clinical ethics consultation.

This is the first conference to present a systematic overview of these developments by leaders in the field. Speakers will include: the present and past Presidents of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities, the President of the European Association of Centers of Medical Ethics, the President of the European Society for the Philosophy of Medicine and Healthcare, and the Directors and Vice-Presidents from the American Medical Association, the Association of Bioethics Program Directors, the Global Health Bioethics Network, and the International Association of Bioethics.

Call for Entries: American Academy of Medical Acupuncture 27th Annual Symposium

Apr 24-26, 2015 St. Louis, Missouri

Deadline for poster and free papers submissions:  February 28, 2015

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is planning a Symposium designed to meet an expressed need to explore the mechanisms of acupuncture from several different perspectives, and to examine current scientific research in the field of medical acupuncture. The Theme of this year's meeting: "Medical Acupuncture - Ancient Roots, Modern Applications." It will address topics suggested by practitioners and stresses many different approaches for addressing practical clinical problems. An emphasis on evidence-based scientific research is integrated with practical protocols for the serious clinician. Surveys and evaluations from previous symposia indicate that there is a desire for more information about acupuncture techniques that honor the rich history of Asian medicine as applied to the contemporary, Western medical practice.

This conference will offer a multi-tiered approach for the understanding and clinical relevance of acupuncture in daily practice. It will expand our awareness of scientific research into the effects of acupuncture, and provide participants with information about different approaches for the treatment of common conditions seen in clinical practice. Clinicians will learn multi-faceted ways to tailor acupuncture treatments for their individual patients. This conference will focus on clinically relevant treatment approaches that can easily be integrated into clinical practice.
