Some Things Go, Some Things Stay: Sorting Out the Transient from the Permanent in Health Care
Emily Friedman, Independent Writer, Lecturer, and Health Policy and Ethics Analyst, Chicago, Illinois

It can be very difficult to make ethics and responsibility the basis of one’s actions when there is so much going on that violates deeply held beliefs. Yet there are core values that can guide us, even as situations crop up that seem unresolvable. Volunteers can make a huge difference in keeping the organization on the right track.

After participating in this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand the core values that should guide health care.
  • Differentiate between tempests in teapots and truly game-changing situations.
  • Exercise the innate moral power of the volunteer to help guide the organization’s decision making.
