NMH Ethics presents a Schwartz Rounds - New Year, New Perspectives on the Meaning of our Work

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Northwestern Memorial Hospital presents A Schwartz Rounds New Year, New Perspectives on the Meaning of our Work ModeratorM. Jeanne Wirpsa, MA BCCProgram Manager, NMH Medical EthicsPanelistsLea Ann Arnold, DNP, RNDirector, Nursing Informatics, NMHCSara Humes, RN, BSNClinical Program Manager, Advanced Heart FailureBluhm Cardiovascular InstituteErin Kinahan, BBA, JDVice President and Senior Associate General CounselKendall Shadley, CPXPPatient Engagement Coach, NMHC Healthcare workers experience one of the highest burnout rates of all professions. In the face of complex regulatory requirements, productivity demands, and advances in technology it is increasingly difficult to stay connected to what gives our work its deepest meaning. For healthcare professionals who are one step removed from patient care, it can be equally challenging--albeit for different reasons. Our panel will share their unique “behind the scene” perspective on finding meaning in their work and invite all participants to share strategies for renewing a commitment to NM’s Patient First mission. Schwartz Center Rounds® is a multidisciplinary forum where caregivers discuss difficult emotional and social issues that arise in caring for patients.

ECMO: Clinical Innovation, Uncertainty and Ethics - Kathy Johnson Neely

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics program presents A Montgomery Lecture With Kathy Johnson Neely, MD, MAMedical Director, Northwestern Memorial Hospital Medical Ethics ProgramAttending Physician, Palliative MedicineNorthwestern Medicine, Central RegionAssociate Professor of Medicine, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine ECMO: Clinical Innovation, Uncertainty and Ethics The deployment of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is rapidly expanding; in its wake, there are extraordinary “saves” alongside ethical uneasiness. Some of the uneasiness is prompted by everyday intensive care medicine – for example, obtaining adequate consent in the context of time-constrained emergencies; determining adequate duration of time-limited trials of a high-burden intervention; and establishing the locus of authority within a shared medical-decision making partnership. Some of the uneasiness relates to innovation with ECMO, the uncertainty of clinic outcomes for the ECMO-rescued patient, and circumstances in which ECMO patients finding themselves on a “bridge to nowhere.” This talk will describe the beginnings of ethical discourse about ECMO, in clinical literature and at NMH.
