Inaugural Saint Catherine of Siena Chair in Health Care Ethics Lecture
Brother Ignatius Perkins, O.P.
Saturday, February 2, 2013
Professional literature in health care ethics today frequently reports discussions on the multiple variables that threaten the human dignity and vulnerability of the sick person. Unfortunately, little attention is given to understanding how human dignity of the clinician is threatened and violated in the current health care environment . . . [which] has led to the systemic violation of the dignity of the clinician (and ultimately that of persons who are sick), created moral distress among clinicians, and the collapse of the healing relationship.
Brother Ignatius Perkins, O.P. holds the St. Catherine of Siena Chair in Catholic Health Care Ethics at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. and at the Dominican Friars Health Care Ministry of New York.
