Conference: Midwest Region Burn Conference – The Ethics of Burn Care

Date: October 9, 2020

Time: 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM CT



Trauma that is likely to result in disability, disfigurement, or loss of function long after the acute condition has been treated, can pose significant ethical questions, especially as they relate to initial care planning. Specifically, these cases highlight difficult ethical questions related to pain management, decision-making capacity, personhood, and resource allocation. This conference will not only specifically address the ethics of burn care, but also explore the clinical and policy dimensions of caring for patients who have experienced severe trauma which will likely result in significant, long-lasting social and physical limitations.
