Overview
As health care providers, we all strive to “do no harm.” What do you do when confronted with a clinical decision where all the options are associated with significant risks of differing types of harm? How do we think about applying the ethical principles of beneficence, respect/autonomy, and justice to situations complicated by patient non-adherence, limited life expectancy, diminished functional potential, compromised ability to participate in medical decision making, social and economic disparities/barriers to optimal health care, off-label use of technology, and resource-intensive treatments with constrained availability? Join us to hear four clinical cases that challenge ethical boundaries in the coronary, structural, and congenital realms of interventional cardiology. Compare your decision making with that of our distinguished faculty and panelists.

Learning Objectives
After completing this webinar, participants should be able to:
  1. Discuss a case example regarding the benefit vs. risk analysis in clinical decisions involving anticipated patient non-adherence with prescribed medical therapy, social and economic barriers to effective mental health interventions, and competing risks associated with proceeding vs. not proceeding with an intervention.
  2. Discuss a case example of clinical decisions involving off-label use of technology and recurrent clinical conditions in which patient behaviors and social determinants of health play a major role.
  3. Discuss a case examples about the use of resource-intensive therapies of constrained availability in patients with limited life expectancy or diminished functional potential.
  4. Discuss a case example of a patient with diminished intellectual capacity and thus limited ability to participate in making decisions about their own goals of care.
  5. Describe the ethical principles involved in the decision to continue providing care for a longstanding established patient vs. referring to a distant center of recognized experience or expertise.
