The Kentucky Healthcare Ethics Consortium (KYHEC) Workshop is an annual 1/2-day educational workshop providing timely information on clinical ethics-related content. Topics and speakers are determined from past KYHEC conference and workshop evaluations and a planning committee composed of KYHEC members.

This year's workshop will focus on providing guidance for ethics committees regarding prevention and resolution of so-called "futility" cases.
