Over the past several decades, the patient-health care provider relationship has transformed from that of a patronizing practitioner directing the care of patients without regard to their wishes to that of a practitioner who engages patients in detailed, educational discussions of treatment options as well as potential risks and benefits, enabling them to choose a therapy in accordance with their values, preferences and priorities; i.e., exercising their autonomy. This case-based, interactive workshop will examine the conflict between autonomy and beneficence in the context of 3 contentious medical issues: the use of mesh for pelvic floor reconstruction, pain therapy and surgery for the morbidly obese.
