Ethical and Professional Challenges to Obstetrician-Gynecologists of the COVID-19 Pandemic
FIGO has provided information to obstetrician-gynecologists worldwide on the scientific and clinical challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This FIGO Webinar will address the ethical and professional challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic for obstetric and gynecologic practice.
There will be an opening presentation on the experience in New York City and suburbs in the hospitals of the not-for-profit Northwell Health System. Topics will include the need to consider ethical obligations to each individual patient in the context of the entire population of patients served by a hospital, which is called frameshifting; the need to prevent ethically unjustified allocation of organisational resources away from obstetrics and gynecology, which is called ring-fencing; and the ethical challenges of responsibly managing organisational resources in a public health emergency.
Each member of the FIGO Committee on the Ethical and Professional Aspects of Reproductive Medicine and Women’s Health will then briefly describe ethical and professional challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in his or her region. There will follow ample time for questions and discussion.
