Montreal Health Ethics Seminar Series

The Montreal Health Ethics Seminar Series aims to promote education and dialogue by exposing various audiences to issues in health ethics


About the series

The Montreal Health Ethics Seminar Series aims to bring clinicians, academics, patients, students, health advocates, and community members together to think about and discuss issues in health ethics. This series was formerly known as the Montreal Neuroethics Network. It has hosted dozens of scholars from local and international institutions since 2007.

Our theme for the year 2018-2019 is moral awareness, which will be broached by a wide array of speakers. Questions related to this topic include (but are not limited to): What are the social and psychological mechanisms of moral awareness? How does one cultivate moral sensitivity? How can we respond to moral distress? What is our (personal, institutional, social) responsibility in the face of the awareness or unawareness of moral issues?

Seminars/webinars are held on Thursdays over lunch time to facilitate individual and group participation. Seminars will take place at the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (Auditorium Jacques Genest, 110 avenue des Pins Ouest) AND be livestreamed (and subsequently archived) on our YouTube channel Pragmatic Health Ethics.

All conferences are free and require no registration!
