Crisis Standards of Care: Public Health Ethics in Light of Evolving Mandates

posted on Sat, Sep 6 2014 2:00 pm by The Network for Public Health Law

Friday, September 26, 2014 at 3 p.m. (ET).

This webinar will discuss the intersections between public health law and public health ethics, with a focus on emergency preparedness. Specifically, the webinar will address issues related to development and implementation of Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) plans based on recent work from the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The presentation will emphasize the role of public health emergency ethics and will present specific recommendations from the Arizona Model Code of Public Health Emergency Ethics, based on the IOM CSC Report and developed with input from stakeholders and ethics experts, that may be used to develop public health emergency ethics codes as part of state CSC planning. The webinar will also discuss the relationship between ethics and law, including the role of formal emergency declarations, legal requirements related to vulnerable populations, and potential liability for public and private entities for failure to plan.
