The 38th Meeting of The New Hampshire-Vermont Hospital Ethics Committee Network
The 38th meeting of the New Hampshire-Vermont Hospital Ethics Committee Network will address some of the unique challenges of bioethics for pediatric patients. Medical care of children in the community, in outpatient settings and in hospitals requires specialized clinical, ethical and legal knowledge and expertise for bioethics committee members and health professionals who deal with children. Many bioethics committee members and pediatric health professionals may not have easy access to experts in pediatric ethics topics; therefore, there is a need to educate the ethics community on such topics. These topics will be taught at the conference through the use of short lectures and interactive case discussions.
Online registration for this event has closed. There is still space available. If you would like to attend, you can register as a walk-in at the conference. For questions, please e-mail Natalie.J.Mantz@hitchcock.org.
