25th Anniversary: KC Ethics Committee Consortium

In 1986, the Kansas City Regional Hospital Ethics Committee Consortium was formed to study issues that transcended any one hospital. From these discussions and study, the group developed policy guidelines that addressed ethically complex problems that all hospitals were dealing with.

On January 15, 2011, the consortium met to celebrate its 25th anniversary. A panel composed of individuals who launched the consortium and participated in its early work described how the consortium began and its work today.

Panelists included:

Myra Christopher, President and CEO of the Center for Practical Bioethics
Hans Uffelmann, co-founder of the Center
Rosemary Flanigan
Judge David Waxse
