May 14, 2020 – Bioethics and COVID-19
May 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Jeffrey Hall Dobken, MD, MPH will host the 4th installment of the series devoted to information you are unlikely to hear elsewhere during these challenging times facing patients and physicians in the U.S. and around the world.
Dr. Dobken’s writing has been recently featured at KevinMD.com:
Bioethics and COVID-19: the tension of quarantine and civil liberties.
– Public health law, individual liberty, and the role of the medical profession.
This timely discussion will:
- explore the tension between quarantine and civil liberty,
- discuss differences between ethics and bioethics,
- examine the concepts of beneficence and non-maleficence and of informed consent and autonomy,
- plus the role of Public Health Authorities and Public Health Programs during pandemics,
- and expose the consequence of all of the above for patients battling COVID-19, the physicians treating them, American citizens, and society as a whole.
