At the end of this session, learners will be able to:
1. Consider the impact burnout and moral distress may have on the practitioner and the patient
2. Reflect on his/her own experiences in dealing with conflict regarding patient care
3. Evaluate his/her own role as a patient advocate in the context of a large medical team

The Sue MacRae Lecture on Ethics and Patient-Centred Care aims to explore the felt ethical experience of those who are sick or unwell, perhaps in their relationship to themselves, family members, caregivers, and/or systems of care. The goal is to understand how patient-centred or relationship-centred frameworks and best practices–inclusive of patient and/or family perspectives–can help illuminate and address common bioethical problems.

This lecture is free and open to the public. No registration is required. It will also be webcast live for those who are unable to join in person.
