The Gatekeeper’s Dilemma 2
Wading through the ethics of allocating funded IVF to Ontarians
June 29th, 2016
12:45 to 5:00pm
Hart House, University of Toronto
The funding of fertility treatments by Ontario poses opportunities, but it also poses significant moral and ethical challenges to clinical providers. Clinicians in Ontario have been put in the position as the gatekeepers for those seeking funded fertility care.
In this edition of the Gatekeeper’s Dilemma, participants will learn how the Ontario Fertility Program is being implemented by various clinics, and how priority setting in this environment can be done. A didactic overview on the subject will be followed by two small-group, case-based interactive sessions and panel discussion. Challenges will be shared and discussed by clinicians, guided by ethical principles and legal constraints. This practical workshop will provide tools to navigate the new system Ontario Fertility Program.
The half day session will feature Kerry Bowman (PhD), a clinical ethicist, who has an academic appointment with the University of Toronto in Family and Community Medicine and serves with the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics.
