ICSome of you maybe interested in this upcoming ICRC online discussion-January 21 2013- Choice & Dileemas health care workers on the frontline

Choices and dilemmas – health-care workers on the frontline: an online discussion
How can you keep patient confidentiality in a war zone if you have the legal duty to share information with authorities or if you are morally compelled to denounce a human rights violation? Can importing health-care strangle local health systems? Are medical ethics applicable in armed conflicts? In the context of the Health Care in Danger campaign and on the occasion of the launch of a unique guide for health-care workers, three experts respond to questions on the responsibilities of medical staff in armed conflict or other emergencies.
There will be three leading experts – including ICRC Dr Robin Coupland – on medical ethics in armed conflict. Details can be found at this link: www.healthcareindanger.org/livestream. Please feel free to share this link with other interested colleagues.
