The planned Ethics Writer's Workshop at the ADEA Annual Session in San Antonio (March 15- 18) will be a working session led by ASDE members and ACD Fellows Phyllis Beemsterboer and Bruce Peltier. It is designed to help participants develop and prepare an article on dental ethics for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The session will begin with an overview of the qualities of a good essay, journal article, or research report, such as organization, writing style, format, clarity, length, and purpose of references. Examples of solid ethics essays and research reports (published in previous journals) will be distributed and scrutinized. The submission and review process will be reviewed, clarified, and demystified. The basic process of writing a first draft will be described, along with common methods used by successful writers. Contemporary ethical trends and themes will be reviewed, followed by a brainstorming session to produce ideas for real future essays. Participants will then work independently to produce a brief thesis statement and rough outline for a future essay. The workshop will conclude with a brief period for informal networking, support, and possible collaboration on essays .
David Chambers reports that on August 17, the California Dental Association Scientific Session in San Francisco presented a panel discussion on practical issues in ethics. This session has become an annual event, sponsored by the CDA Ethics Council featuring a case-based, participatory format.

This course provides seven hours of C.E. credit. The course is open to all dentists, dental students, educators, and hygienists. Because this course is distinct from the LeaderSkills workshops, a registration fee of $185 applies.
Analyzing and Responding to Ethical Dilemmas: Addressing the Challenge and Managing the Conversation
The purpose of this course is to sensitize practitioners to circumstances that may produce ethical conflict and to provide a framework to assist in appropriate resolution. Ethical principles and values will be reviewed to provide a foundation for analyzing cases. Participants will be guided in using ethical decision making to address case vignettes in which an ethical dilemma is present. The session will also focus on the challenge of actually implementing actions that must follow from ethical decisions, and will focus on practicing these skills. Dr. Bruce Peltier is Professor of Psychology and Ethics at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry at the University of Pacific in San Francisco. He has received UOP’s teacher-scholar award, and the distinguished adjunct faculty award at the University of San Francisco. Professor Pamela Zarkowski is currently Academic Vice President at the University of Detroit Mercy and Professor at the School of Dentistry in Detroit, Michigan. For more than 34 years she has taught dental, dental hygiene, graduate students, practitioners and educators in the area of legal and ethical issues important to clinical practice and dental education. After completing this course, attendees will:
• Understand the fundamental elements of dental ethics in the education of dental health care professionals
• Describe the normative principles, core values and philosophical perspectives underpinning the discipline of dental ethics
• Analyze typical ethics issues in terms of the ADA Code
• Understand the fundamental elements of assertive communication and healthy confrontation
• Have less anxiety about conflict and greater readiness to engage in communication dealing with conflict
*Both speakers are Board members of ASDE.

Special Ethics Course!
13th Annual Meeting October 13-16, 2011
Minneapolis, MN Hyatt Minneapolis
Theme: Generation(s) and Transformation(s)
ASBH annual conference--"Generation(s) and Transformation(s)"--invites participants to explore and analyze all aspects of the concepts of "generation"-from pediatrics to geriatrics, as well as generative and regenerative practices in medicine-and "transformation," from a focus on the changing landscape of healthcare reform to the development of cutting-edge technologies. The medical humanities and bioethics have themselves played a role in generating new ideas and transforming practices within healthcare. Further, both disciplines now have "generations" of practitioners, complete with such issues as generational change/conflict/collaboration and legacies. We invite scholars in the medical humanities and bioethics to submit papers, panels, and workshops that examine not only healthcare practices involving patients young and old, but also explore generation(s) and transformation(s) in light of policy implications, education of learners at all levels, and critical analysis of the disciplines of medical
Culture and Dental Ethics
Dental ethics can be difficult in any environment. But in a diverse community like the San Fran- cisco Bay Area or in the state of California, culture complicates things and often adds a challeng- ing twist to conventional ethical decision-making. So-called “minorities” are now the majority of the California population. This workshop begins with brief discussions on culture, real and faux cultural differences and the problem of stereotyping, followed by exemplary dental cases. It will focus on the positive, intriguing and humorous ways that culture influences the delivery of humane, high-quality dental care. Practitioner-patient interactions and internal staff interactions will be emphasized. Participants are invited to bring their own cases for discussion. Members of the American Society for Dental Ethics will also present information and cases. The workshop concludes with a summary of recommendations and cautions.
The Intensive Bioethics Course is a week-long academic program in bioethics designed for health care practitioners, policy makers, and clinical researchers. The course addresses the day's most challenging topics in health care ethics in a setting that allows for sustained dialogue through lectures and small discussion groups with a distinguished faculty. Drawing participants from around the globe, the course is truly intensive, with much of the intellectual exchange occurring over shared meals and in extra discussions organized around participants' special interests. In addition to core lectures on central ethical topics such as beneficence, respect for autonomy, and virtues in the caretaking professions, participants have the opportunity to attend more informal, faculty-facilitated discussions on special topics, such as Hospital Ethics Committees, Futility, and Feminist Bioethics.
