Our Aging Brains: Decision-making, Fraud, and Undue Influence

April 27 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
WCC 2036 Milstein East ABC

With over 70 million Baby Boomers retiring, elder financial exploitation has been labeled the “Crime of the 21st Century.” In this half-day event, we will explore the neuroscience, psychology, and legal doctrine of financial decision-making in older adults. How does the aging brain make financial decisions, and when is it uniquely susceptible? How can courts best use science to improve their adjudication of disputes over “competency”, “capacity”, and “undue influence”? Is novel neuroimaging evidence of dementia ready for courtroom use?…

Ordeals in Health Care: Ethics and Efficient Delivery REGISTER NOW! Ordeals in Health Care image

May 10 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:30am, repeating until May 11, 2018

WCC 2036 Milstein East

Economic ordeals are interventions that deliberately make access to products or services more difficult in an effort to improve resource allocation. In this vein, making patients wait in long lines to schedule an appointment with a specialist might discourage patients with needs that could be met by less qualified personnel from taking up the specialist’s time, thus freeing up time for those with complex needs. Similarly, putting brand-name medications at the bottom of a long list of options on clinicians’…

2018 Petrie-Flom Annual Conference: Beyond Disadvantage: Disability, Law, and Bioethics

June 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
WCC 2036 Milstein East ABC

The aim of the conference is to construct a twenty-first century conception of disablement that resolves the tension about whether being disabled is merely neutral or must be bad, examines and articulates the clinical, philosophical, and practical implications of that determination, and attempts to integrate these conclusions into medical and legal practices.

This year’s Petrie-Flom Center annual conference is organized in collaboration with the Harvard Law School Project on Disability.

Putting Patients at the Center of Research: Opportunities and Challenges for Ethical and Regulatory Oversight

June 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
WCC 2036 Milstein East ABC

Efforts to place the patient at the center of medical research, spurred by the Affordable Care Act’s founding of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute, have begun to change the way clinical research is conceptualized and conducted.
