Alcoholic liver disease represents a large and growing portion of the liver disease in the US and worldwide, and the most powerful treatment shown to improve outcomes for patients with ALD is complete abstinence from alcohol.  Unfortunately, many patients with ALD continue to drink or relapse to alcohol use, even after their diagnosis, worsening liver-related outcomes and  mortality. Jessica Mellinger will be speaking about her K award project to improve outcomes for patients with ALD by developing and testing a pilot intervention designed to increase engagement in alcohol use disorder treatment.

In an interview with MedicalResearch.com, Dr. Sarah Hawley discusses her new study regarding breast cancer patients' understanding of risk. She states, "Research has shown that breast cancer patients do not have a good understanding of their risk of distant recurrence, and and that the fear of cancer spreading is one of the biggest concerns that patients have. The research that has been done shows that most patients over-esimate this risk, and think they have a bigger chance of the cancer coming back than they actually have."

"Stewardship and Value:  Are we choosing wisely in managing breast cancer?"

Abstract: This lecture will begin with a brief discussion of the moral foundations of physicians' obligations to serve society, in addition to the patients they directly serve.  It will then consider analogies between financial stewardship and antibiotic stewardship, and it will conclude by focusing on several examples of opportunities for better physician stewardship in breast cancer, including slow uptake of short courses of breast radiation and rapid increases in the use of bilateral mastectomy for unilateral disease.

Kayte Spector-Bagdady, JD, MBioethics

Abstract: In 1966, Dr. Henry Beecher argued that there was no more reliable safeguard for the human research subject than an “intelligent, informed, conscientious, compassionate, responsible investigator.” Considering the current strictures of our human subjects research compliance enterprise, and wide-spread industry hand wringing over the proposed revisions to regulations, we might perhaps long for a simpler time when researchers with “high ethical purposes and completely good morals” were assumed as opposed to compelled. And yet. This presentation will explore the implications and aftermath of the STD experiments conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service in Guatemala in the 1940s.

"Ethical global health engagement: the Michigan Women's Health Model"

Millennial learners are experiencing and want to engage in global issues.  As institutions develop opportunities for their students, ethical issues need to be considered.  Transnational, transcultural, and translational issues as well as issues of equity, bilateral gain, economic transparency, academic values and sustainability must be factored into academic institutional partnerships between Western and low income countries.  The Ghana experience will be used to develop the concept of a “Michigan Model”.

Title: Collecting and Managing Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Data in Health Contexts: Bioethical Dilemmas from a Queer Historical Perspective

Abstract: This talk, drawn from dissertation research, historicizes a number of regulatory changes governing the collection and management of sexual orientation and gender identity data in health contexts in the United States that have taken place since 2009. It focuses on a range of less-considered bioethical dilemmas that stem from the introduction of questions about sexual orientation and gender identity into the battery of demographic information collected in certified Electronic Health Record technologies.

"Advance Care Planning: Beyond Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA)"

Abstract: Advance care planning is a crucial part of end of life medical care. It can take many forms, including designation of a surrogate decision maker via a DPOA document. However it can also involve living wills, physicians orders for life sustaining treatment (POLSTs), or even simply clinician patient conversation. The newly revised hospital policy on advance directives reflects this broader approach. The talk will include a brief review of the philosophical and ethical basis of advance care planning before diving into a discussion of the new hospital policy and it's impact on practice.
