Outreach Programs

A major function of the Center for Ethics is to share our work with others.  The following are examples of some of our outreach efforts.

Death Notification Role Play: Once a year during orientation of the new interns for the Department of Medicine The Death Notification Role Play workshop assists new physicians in developing their skills of how to tell someone that a loved one has died.

Companion Quilt Program: Each year the Quilt program provides hand made quilts that are placed on the beds of terminally ill patients at University Hospital. The family may then take the quilt home as a loving keepsake after their loved one dies. Every quilt is a gift of love, and offers incalculable comfort to patients and their loved ones during this sacred time.
