Call for abstracts for the 6th International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation to be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, May 11-14, 2010. Abstracts accepted until September 1, 2009.
The theme for the 2010 conference is “The Art of Ethics,” to reflect the reality that clinical ethics consultation, like clinical practice, is both an art and a science. It also reflects the principle venue for the Conference: the Portland Art Museum. The conference logo is taken from the Center’s graphic depicting model for clinical ethics consultation: The pallet and brush represent the artistry of doing ethics. The colors and designs in the pallet reflect the importance roles of clinical integrity (caduseus), beneficence (hands), autonomy (people) and justice (scales) in doing clinical ethics consultation.
