Pitt Public Health, University of Pittsburgh Center for Bioethics & Health Law
Live Webinar: May 12 from 11:00am – 12:00pm ET
We are pleased to introduce Pandemic Policies and Practices, a distance-accessible series that will host discussions of relevant and provocative ethical issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The first session examines an issue affecting public health and clinical care workers nationwide: how to implement a fair and transparent approach for allocating scarce resources. Our guest speaker, Dr. Douglas White, UPMC Endowed Chair for Ethics in Critical Care Medicine in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, consolidated 10 years of research efforts into a model policy to assist hospitals and health care systems to distribute critical care resources during a public health emergency. How was this model policy developed? Who provided input? What are the important features? Bring your questions and join Lisa Parker, PhD, Director of the University of Pittsburgh Center for Bioethics and Health Law, as she explores the model policy with Dr. White during the first conversation in this exciting new series.
