Description

The 11th National Paediatric Bioethics Conference (4-6 September 2019)

Respecting different perspectives

Respect is a fundamental ethical principle – it seems that hardly needs to be stated. But sometimes it is not easy to work out how to respect others, especially when there are differences in views and values, culture and religion, background experiences and expectations. These challenges can arise in interactions between families, within treating teams and beyond.

What does respect mean in the many different relationships we have? Are there any limits?

Plenary sessions at the conference will focus in-depth on a number of specific topics, including:

  • Respecting families' cutural and religious beliefs and practices - going too far or not going far enough? Are there any limits?

  • Balancing respect for families with staff safety and well-being

  • Witnessing parenting practices in the hospital - respect for parents as parents, but what if ….

  • Respecting a child – what does this mean in theory and in practice?

  • Respectful disagreements between clinicians – is it possible? What would it look like?

  • Accommodating difference of opinion- respect, compromise, caving-in….?

  • Is conflict always bad? Can respect and conflict co-exist?

  • How well do our systems respect diversity?

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 and submitted papers.
