The meeting aims to be 4th annual event which has as its main aim the creation and maintenance of a body of knowledge and a community of scholars and practitioners engaged in the ethics of primary healthcare.
This meeting will bring together academics, educators, practitioners, ethicists and managers and others involved in the planning and delivery of primary care in an interdisciplinary event which will explore the ethical choices that clinicians make every day in commonplace situations.
The objectives for the meeting are:
– To define what ethical issues arise in primary care
– To seek to make explicit some of the implicit assumptions, choices and values expressed by clinicians
– To look specifically at current professional and public concerns concerning ethics education in the primary healthcare workforce
– To discuss existing and future research in this area, including how such research may be supported
– To provide a forum where delegates who are involved in research education and/or practice can share experience and expertise
