Presiding Officer and Introducer: Henri R. Ford, MD, MHA, FACS, FAAP, FRCSEng(Hon), Miami, FL
Lecturer: Margaret L. Schwarze, MD, FACS, Madison, WI

Vascular surgeon and bioethicist Margaret L. Schwarze, MD, MPP, FACS, discusses informed consent and shared decision making during the 2019 John J. Conley Ethics and Philosophy Lecture, What We Talk about When We Talk About Surgery.

The question of whether or not surgery is the appropriate answer to a medical problem is complicated by the very real impulse to preserve life at all costs, noted Dr. Schwarze, associate professor of surgery and bioethics, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.

The John J. Conley Ethics and Philosophy Lecture is sponsored by the Committee on Ethics and generously supported since 1991 by John J. Conley, MD, FACS, to explore ethical issues in surgery. Dr. Conley died in 1999, but his legacy continues and his memory is honored at this annual lecture.
