PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Baylor College of Medicine Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Houston Methodist, and Rice University Department of Philosophy established this international award and named lectureship in Dr. Baruch Brody’s memory. This award recognizes junior and mid-career scholars who have made important theoretical contributions to the field of bioethics. Dr. Brody was one of America’s leading bioethicists, and this award honors someone in the field who embodies the values and virtues that were central to Dr. Brody’s scholarly life as well as work at the three sponsoring institutions.

Target Audience

Staff physicians and other allied health professionals need to be regularly updated on the guidelines and challenges related to ethics consultation, clinical ethics practice and the role of ethics in shared clinical decision-making.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:

  • Describe why race and racism are bioethical issues to which bioethicists and health practitioners should respond
  • Identify and reflect upon aspects of their profession and professional practices that are influenced by race and racism

The Division of Continuing Professional Development (DCPD) makes every effort to develop CME/CE activities that are scientifically based, accurate, current, and objectively presented. In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education Standards for Commercial Support SM, Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) has implemented a mechanism requiring everyone in a position to control the content of an educational activity (e.g., directors, planning committee members, contributors, peer reviewers) to disclose any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests (drug/device companies) and manage/resolve any conflicts of interest prior to the activity. Individuals must disclose to participants the existence or non-existence of financial relationships: 1) at the time of the activity or within 12 months prior; and 2) of their spouses/partners.

Baylor College of Medicine does not view the existence of interests or relationships with commercial entities as implying bias or decreasing the value of a presentation. It is up to the participants to determine whether the interests or relationships influence the presenter with regard to exposition or conclusions.

If at any time during this activity you feel that there has been commercial or promotional bias, please inform us by using the commercial bias comments box in the evaluation form. Please answer the questions about balance in the CME/CE activity evaluation candidly.

Some drugs/devices identified during this activity may have United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for specific purposes only or for use in restricted research settings. The FDA has stated that it is the responsibility of the individual physician to determine the FDA status of each drug or device that he/she wishes to use in clinical practice and to use the products in compliance with the applicable law.

Baylor College of Medicine requires that all contributors disclose an unlabeled use or investigational use (not yet approved for any purpose) of pharmaceutical and medical device products, and provide adequate scientific and clinical justification for such use. Physicians are urged to fully review all the available data on products or procedures before using them to treat patients.
