Should we trust technology to provide mental health care? – International Neuroethics Society Public Program

Chicago - 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Should we trust technology to provide mental health care?

Smartphone apps, social media, the internet and digital technology are transforming mental health care. Is our increasing reliance on technology for mental health care a good thing? Can we and should we trust technology the way we trust human care providers? In this public event we will examine the challenges and opportunities in digital mental health care, and discuss the role of human experts in mental health interventions of the future. We ask: what is lost and what is gained as we turn to digital mental health?

Speaking for the Dying: Life-and-Death Decisions in Intensive Care - Susan Shapiro

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics

presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Susan P. Shapiro, PhD
Research Professor
American Bar Foundation
Chicago, Illinois

Speaking for the Dying:
Life-and-Death Decisions in Intensive Care

Seven in ten older Americans who require medical decisions in the final days of life lack capacity to make them. For many of us, our biggest life-and-death decisions literally will therefore be made by someone else. But how will they decide for us? Despite their critical role in choreographing the end of another s life, we know remarkably little. Susan Shapiro s new book, Speaking for the Dying, fills that void. Drawing on daily observations over more than two years in two intensive care units in a diverse urban hospital, Shapiro will share how loved ones actually speak for the dying, the criteria they use in medical decisions on behalf of patients without capacity, and the limited role of advance directives in this process.

The Consolation of Horror:  A Hidden Opportunity in the Hidden Curriculum - Catherine Belling

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics

presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Catherine Belling, PhD
Associate Professor of Medical Education
Center for Bioethics & Medical Humanities
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

The Consolation of Horror:
A Hidden Opportunity in the Hidden Curriculum

"Horror" is a genre (e.g. horror movies) and before that an affect (the reaction horror movies try to provoke). The experience of medicine, for professionals, for patients, and for the public, often means encountering the same things that horrify movie audiences, but in a different context. How does medicine represent horror and its unruly objects? I'll suggest that explicit attention to horror in medicine might generate some surprising sources of compassion and resilience.
