Medicine has allowed for a few to conscientiously object to providing services, like performing abortions, for people who have religious or moral objections. There isn’t any formal training on how to deal with conscientious objectors and what objects are actually appropriate versus others that may be more bigoted or discriminatory and what is the institutions requirement to honoring those objections. Without clear understanding of objections and what institutions should do with objectors, patients can be denied needed care and clinicians can be forced to provide care they object to. This symposium will address these gaps in learning to help address clinician conscientious objection.
