To help physicians appropriately manage complex ethical issues, GERI’s ethic workshop will equip participants with the necessary skills and tools to find the right decision.

  • Understand ethical issues in end-of-life care
  • Know how to apply ethical principles into day-to-day practices
  • Utilize communication skills to discuss senstitive issues with patients and their families
  • Acquire the ability and confidence to make better ethical decisions for end-of-life patients
