Empirical Bioethics Conference a Success

Nearly 110 participants from 10 states braved the elements to attend the first-of-its-kind conference Empirical Bioethics:  Emerging Trends for the 21st Century, February 21-22, 2013 at UC's Kingsgate Conference Center.  Empirical bioethics involves the measurement and evaluation of ethical principles. Speakers included internationally recognized experts in the application of bioethics to clinical research and medicine. Scheduled sessions generated a lively interchange between the audience and presenters, which carried over into the first day's reception and networking lunch the following day.

The complete conference agenda is available here.  Slides of the keynote and featured speakers are linked from their presentation titles below.

Slides from 5 additional presentations on the interface between clinical care and research; issues related to informed consent; and advances in community consultation are posted here

The event was sponsored by the CCTST and CCHMC Ethics Center.  For more information see the program brochure, or contact Bettie Durant.
