Title: Ethics Colloquium: Ethical Challenges of Global Surgery
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 24: 2:30 pm - 5:45 pm
Description: This panel will consist of a pro and con discussion of a series of four cases to explore central ethical issues in global surgery. The topics addressed will include the following: What should the goals of global surgery be? Should the focus be on doing cases that could not normally be done in the local country or improving capacity of local surgeons? Should surgeons or surgical residents be allowed to do things abroad that they are not allowed to do at home? What are the appropriate standards of informed consent for global surgery? How should plans for global surgical outreach be altered in the face of great need such as natural or man-made disasters? Should standards of acceptable practice be changed for great need? THIS SESSION WILL NO LONGER OFFER SELF-ASSESSMENT CREDIT.
