Upcoming Activities

Trillium: An Approach to Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): An Interprofessional Ethics Perspective

May 21

It is very likely that we all have or will encounter questions from our patients about 'Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)'. These questions may generate certain ethical and professional conflicts in our practice, given that our patient's wishes may sometimes be at odds with our duties to "do no harm" and to adhere to scientific standards of practice. This seminar will explore an ethically-informed approach to addressing such conflicts and will provide a framework for how to discuss CAM with patients in a respectful and professionally-responsible way.
