Community Health Needs Assessment

Ethical Considerations in Healthcare


Modern patient care practices create many new questions and uncertainties as they continually push the boundaries of what is possible for treatment. This conference is aimed to provide guidance through the maze of healthcare decision making. The first annual Acadia Hospital Ethics Conference features interactive presentations and discussions with participating healthcare professionals about current, new, and emerging questions in psychiatric, medical, and community healthcare ethics.
