The NUS Centre for Biomedical Ethics is hosting the 13th Annual International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation (ICCEC): “Clinical Ethics and Change in Health Care” from 25 – 27 May 2017, at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore. ABR will dedicate a special issue to this conference
With advancements and innovations in healthcare delivery, a rapidly aging population, and the effects of globalisation, culture and migration, there is an increasing need to discuss best practices, debate and share ideas, and shape the evolution of healthcare ethics and professionalism. The core principles of clinical ethics for the healthcare professions need up-to-date contextualisation, or they may risk being lost in translation. Singapore will provide a vibrant setting for discussion of these conference themes. The Conference is organised by CENTRES and the NUS Centre for Biomedical Ethics.
