Ethics of Help: Creating Global Ambassadors for Patient Safety

When: June 8 & 9, 2017
Where: University of Minnesota Twin Cities, Minneapolis Minnesota

The “Ethics of Help” symposium will explore the ethical complexities of volunteering in health care settings at home and abroad. From high school students to licensed health professionals, more and more people are engaging in philanthropic health care among vulnerable populations, usually in settings unfamiliar to them. They are well-intentioned individuals who give their time in hopes of making a difference to others, and possibly to explore or test their skills in new settings.

This symposium will bring together the champions and challengers of voluntarism in health care settings at home and abroad, opening up space for a challenging conversation: what inadvertent harms can occur even when one volunteers with the best of intentions? What can we as individuals, as members and leaders of organizations, institutions, and professional associations, do to understand better the inadvertent risks in volunteering in health care settings, and what strategies can we use to maximize the benefits for patients, communities, volunteers, and institutions everywhere.
