Health Care Ethics Disclosures Ethical Dilemmas
All members interested in an introduction to medical ethics. An ad hoc survey of members attending the Rio meeting resulted in a request for such a course.

Participants will gain an understanding of the precepts and principles underlying modern medical ethics. Discussion will then proceed to the application of ethics to the conduct and publication of research and to the reporting of financial and industry relationships. The second half of the course will consist of case presentations. Actual clinical scenarios will be used to demonstrate the application of ethical principles to clinical dilemmas.
