Tuesday, November 29, 2005


Troubleshooting the Patientís Plan of Care Form will be of interest to nurses, social workers, physicians (particularly nursing home medical directors and hospital emergency room physicians), health lawyers (particularly those who work with hospitals and/or nursing homes), county ombudsmen, public guardians, ethics committee members, nursing home administrators, hospital case managers and discharge planners, pastoral care, hospice staff, and any other professionals who interact with patients at the end of life, whether in long-term care, the hospital setting, or in the community.

Jointly Sponsored by Broadmead, Lifespan and The Beacon Institute The Maryland Healthcare Ethics Committee Network (MHECN) is a membership organization established by the Law and Health Care Program at the University of Maryland School of Law. Its purpose is to facilitate and enhance ethical reflection in all aspects of decision making in health care settings by supporting and providing informational and educational resources to ethics committees serving health care institutions in the State of Maryland. The Network achieves this goal by:

  • serving as a resource to ethics committees as they investigate ethical dilemmas within their institution and as they strive to assist their institution function consistently with its mission statement;
  • fostering communication and information sharing among Network members;
  • providing educational programs for ethics committee members, other healthcare providers, and members of the general public on ethical issues in health care; and
  • conducting research to improve the functioning of ethics committees and ultimately the care of patients in Maryland.
