Ethics Conversations: Session 2

Date / Time


This is a virtual event, accessible online and over phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


In this 90-minute webinar, Dr. Robert Kinscherff will address viewer-inspired ethical scenarios. In advance of the webinar, participants are invited to submit de-identified ethical scenarios for consultation and discussion. Dr. Kinscherff will address a selected set of these scenarios during the webinar, addressing the ethical considerations and potential resolutions, before opening the session to participant reflection and discussion. The first hour of the webinar will be dedicated to Dr. Kinscherff’s ethical considerations followed by 30 minutes dedicated to questions, answers and discussion with webinar participants.  Since specific options for ethical resolution of scenarios may be shaped by law, regulations, and professional resources and practices found in different jurisdictions and locations, Dr. Kinscherff’s discussion cannot be relied upon as legal advice or solely relied upon for making decisions in the case scenarios discussed.

Please send de-identified ethical scenarios to: with the subject line: Ethics Conversations: Session 1 – Ethical Scenario.
