March 2023 Conference

Ethics, Healthcare, and Emotional Well-being
30th Annual Interprofessional Healthcare Ethics Conference
Center for Bioethics & Health Law | University of Pittsburgh

March 30-31, 2023

Recent and ongoing events—the COVID-19 pandemic, opioid and gun violence crises, misinformation and  widening social, economic, and political gaps—have wreaked havoc on the emotional well-being and morale of the healthcare workforce. Patients and the public, including young people, are experiencing increased rates of anxiety, depression, and despair. The sessions comprising this conference explore the ethical foundation for providing resources to support the mental health of clinicians and patients. It will also discuss and provide practical, humanities-based resources to support mental health and emotional well-being.
