In 2016, both the European Association of Centres of Medical Ethics (EACME) and the Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law of the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) will celebrate their 30th anniversary. An excellent occasion for the annual EACME Conference to reflect on the past, present and future challenges of European Bioethics. Where do we come from? What are the present issues at stake? And what will the future bring?
The focus of this year’s conference is on a variety of highly relevant ethical issues in health care:
Organizational Ethics in Health Care: Principles, Cases and Practical Solutions
Ethical Issues in Care for Older Persons
Ethical, Legal and Social Developments in Human Genomics
Ethics and Integrity in Research
It is a real pleasure to invite you to the 30th EACME conference to be held in Leuven. We invite you to share your insights on the above mentioned topics with colleagues from all over the world. The historic town center of Leuven hosting the oldest university of the Low Countries provides excellent opportunities to meet each other academically as well as in social activities.
