Description

The 10th National Paediatric Bioethics Conference 'Ethics in a changing landscape'

The healthcare landscape is changing. Clinical decisions, communication with families and relationships between health professionals, parents and children are increasingly influenced and directed by social media, crowdfunding for unproven or expensive treatments, and the availability of new technologies and devices for monitoring health. This conference will explore the ethical implication of this changing landscape for paediatric health care.

The National Paediatric Bioethics Conference, held annually at the RCH, provides time to reflect on the big picture, and opportunities to think things through in depth and to hear different perspectives on challenging and troubling issues. It brings to together paediatric and adolescent health practitioners of all disciplines, ethicists, policy makers and community sector practitioners. It is a collaborative, exploratory and supportive event for sharing experiences and ways of thinking, and developing insights and new ways forward.

The conference offers a mix of invited speakers, submitted papers and plenary sessions.
