Let's Talk Refusals 

Presented by: Sally Bliss, RN, MSB, HEC-C: Clinical Ethicist, UVM Medical Center, Adjunct Assistant Professor, UVM Larner College of Medicine and Erika Smart, JD: Legal Risk Manager, UVM Medical Center


We are obligated to provide our very best care to the patients we see.  Yet sometimes, patient’s disagree with our recommendations and refuse what is being offered.  This session will discuss the ethical obligations and legal framework for addressing patient refusals in a variety of clinical situations.
