At the intersection of clinical and public health ethics lies the important practices of infection control. Often taken for granted as both proper and necessary, infection control encompasses a variety of practices that invite closer scrutiny. Is isolation worth the burden it imposes on patients? Do our monitoring practices pass the ethical sniff test? Is it right or wrong to come to work sick? And what should happen when healthcare workers do not comply with practices? Please join us for a discussion of these and other important ethical concerns related to this fundamental aspect in the delivery of health care.
