The 53rd Meeting of the NH/VT Ethics Committees

April 13, 2023 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Is it appropriate for ethicists to engage in professional advocacy? If so, how can we be effective while managing our own biases?

Advocacy can be defined as “support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy.” It is also viewed as a responsibility to promote individual and social good/change and address disparities. Many healthcare professionals believe that serving in the role of advocate is an essential, though difficult, part of the role of all healthcare professionals. Please join us as we discuss advocacy as a professional responsibility and share strategies that will help participants to recognize injustice and influence change in their unique settings. Best practice in informing policymakers (local and broader) will be presented.
