9th ICCEC in Munich

The Ninth International Conference on Clinical Ethics and Consultation had the theme “Bridging Clinical Medicine and Ethics”, and was hosted by the Munich University Hospital and the Ludwig-Maximilians-­University in Munich, Germany on March 14-16, 2013.

The intention was to strengthen the bridge between clinical medicine and ethics by providing a forum for the exchange of experience and discussions between clinicians, ethicists and ethics consultants. In particular, it presented “role model consultations” based on real clinical cases from intensive care, dementia care, and oncology. In addition, plenary sessions focused on the needs for ethics consultation from the perspective of clinicians and connected them to the experience of ethics consultants.
