The 2018 European Association of Centres of Medical Ethics (EACME) conference will be held at the VU University Medical Center (VUmc) Amsterdam (The Netherlands). The conference will be organized by the department of Medical Humanities and will begin on Thursday September 6 and conclude on Saturday September 8, 2018.

Ethics in Action

The significance of ethics in clinical practice, education & research

Doing ethics consists of reflecting, reasoning and contributing to a good life: in practice, with practice and for practice. Ethics is about thinking what it means to realise a better practice and which moral competences are needed in order to do so. More and more, doing ethics requires acknowledging different perspectives on what is morally right and justified. Truly meeting other perspectives requires a participatory, systematic and critical dialogue with various stakeholders. Stakeholders are not merely objects of study but are partners in research and contributing to a good life. At this conference we will continue to do so, together with you and other stakeholders.

The Department of Medical Humanities at the VU University Medical Centre (VUmc) welcomes you to the 35 th conference of the European Association of Centres of Medical Ethics (EACME) in beautiful Amsterdam. In addition, the European Clinical Ethics Network (ECEN) and the Cambridge Consortium on Bioethics Education will organize satellite pre-conference meetings on the 5th of September 2018.


The conference ‘Ethics in action’ will focus on the following four themes:

  • Towards a further professionalization of Clinical Ethics Support (CES)
  • Rethinking the ethics of ageing and the end of life
  • Chances and challenges of participation and diversity
  • Resilience and recovery in psychiatry
