Health care professionals understand that in the advancing world of genomics, knowledge is drawn from every patient encounter. The School of Medicine will co-sponsor the one-day Center for Practical Bioethics 2013 Fall Symposium on Nov. 8 on the Ethical Frontiers in the Brave New World of Genomics and Learning Health Systems.
The symposium will attempt to provide insights to issues on the ethical frontiers of genomics, research, clinical practice, policy and advocacy. Internationally-acclaimed experts, including representatives from the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues will lecture and lead panel discussions that explore topics from the science of human genome sequencing and it’s implications for privacy to the obligations of patients and providers to participate in research related to routine patient care.
