The significance of ethics in clinical practice, education & research
First announcement – Call for abstracts
Doing ethics consists of reflecting, reasoning and contributing to a good life: in practice, with practice and for practice.
Ethics is about thinking what it means to realise a better practice and which moral competences are needed in order to do
so. More and more, doing ethics requires acknowledging different perspectives on what is morally right and justified. Truly
meeting other perspectives requires a participatory, systematic and critical dialogue with various stakeholders.
Stakeholders are not merely objects of study but are partners in research and contributing to a good life. At this conference
we will continue to do so, together with you and other stakeholders.
The Department of Medical Humanities at the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam (VUmc) welcomes you to the 35th conference
of the European Association of Centres of Medical Ethics (EACME) in beautiful Amsterdam. In addition, the European
Clinical Ethics Network (ECEN) and the Cambridge Consortium on Bioethics Education will organise satellite pre-conference
meetings on the 5th of September 2018.
