Event description
Ethical reflections on COVID-19 in paediatric healthcare

About this Event

The COVID-19 global pandemic has sharpened focus on a number of ethical issues in healthcare that are barely noticed in more usual times. Having to think about these issues has been challenging to our understanding of our values and responsibilities. We have had to contemplate decisions most of us would never have expected to face. How have we had to change the way we think? How has COVID-19 changed the way we provide care to children and families? How has COVID-19 changed us?

This will be a virtual conference. Over three days, the Children’s Bioethics Centre will unpack, explore and reflect upon these questions and consider how we can learn from these experiences.

There will be a mix of plenary sessions, paper presentations, Q&A sessions and panel discussions in a combination of live and recorded sessions which will reflect on ethical questions or values raised by COVID-19, such as:

  • Anticipatory ethics - The moral dimensions of planning for the worst
  • Duty to treat and risk to self - how much personal risk ought healthcare workers to take on in fulfilling their professional obligations?
  • The ethical nature of decision-making in a pandemic – transparency, democracy or authority?
  • What counts as fair rationing of resources? Are some patients at risk of being discriminated against?
  • Tele-health and remote working – promoting or damaging to the well-being and interests of children and families?
  • Autonomy, individuals and public health.
