Overview

To meet the LCME and ACGME accreditation guidelines requiring ethics education and The Joint Commission requiring accredited healthcare institutions to have a process for addressing ethics-related issues, the Kentucky Healthcare Ethics Consortium i(KYHEC) is pleased to offer its second ethics conference. KYHEC provides opportunities for networking with ethics colleagues and access to educational offerings and training materials.

Panel presentations and speaker-guided workshops provide expert information on selected topics while creating an interactive environment where participants can raise issues, ask questions, and discuss strategies for resolving ethical issues. It is important for high-quality patient care that personnel who fulfill these requirements are appropriately trained.
