"Medical Ethics in a Hospital Setting"

“Medical Ethics in a Hospital Setting” will be  presented by Mary L. Caldwell, Clinical Ethicist at the  Sunday, November 17th meeting of the Ethical Society of  Asheville, 2:00-3:30 PM at the Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road in North  Asheville (off Merrimon Avenue near UNCA). Caldwell will give an overview of Ethics and the work of an ethicist in a hospital setting, ethical theory and  principles and typical ethics consultation in a hospital setting. 

Caldwell has worked at Mission Health for 24 years,  initially in Pastoral Care.  In the mid-90s she became involved with the Ethics Committee, and returned to school, completing an MA in Philosophy with a Concentration in Medical Ethics in 2001 from the University of  Tennessee, Knoxville.  She has served as Clinical Ethicist at Mission since  2006. She conducts ethics consultation in the hospital and teaches ethics,  both, in the hospital and in the community.  She has presented at national and  international ethics conferences. 

There will be a discussion period following the  presentation.  Following the meeting, there will be time for informal conversation and light refreshments.  All are welcome!

    Excellent! Ms. Caldwell presented the field of ethics - its theories, principles and ethical dilemmas, both in a hospital setting and life outside a medical setting. Very interesting and well delivered. It was, also, great to see old friends who have been away for a while and meet new ones!
