1. Attend PHC's Annual Ethics Conference 

Attend Providence Health Care's Annual Ethics Conference on Friday, April 26!

Join us for Providence Health Care's Annual Ethics Conference on Friday, April 26 to learn from a diverse group of speakers who will be talking about culture and ethical issues that arise in health care.

This event will explore answers to important questions such as:

What is our culture in health care? What do we mean when we use the word culture... and what else do we mean? How does culture relate to what we say, how we understand what is said, and how we act? How do we accommodate patients'/families' cultural preferences in practice and how do we balance these accommodations with other ethical principles?

This day will challenge you to think about culture in a new way and approach ethical issues that arise in health care with a different perspective.

This event is FREE for PHC Staff and Physicians ($100 for non-PHC Staff/Physicians).

This event always sells-out and there are only a few spots remaining so register soon! After the event is full, we will keep a waitlist.

To register, send your completed registration form to ethicsconference@providencehealth.bc.ca.
