WMA 2018

Medical Ethics Conference 2018

Tue, 02 Oct 2018 12:00:00 AM – Thu, 04 Oct 2018 11:59:59 PM

The WMA, prior to the WMA Icelandic General Assembly to be held in October 2018, will launch a conference named “WMA Medical Ethics Conference” that summarizes the ethical issues addressed by the WMA for years to make it a preconference of the Scientific Session of the General Assembly to be followed.

The WMA has been studying over the last 70 years how to improve medical ethics as a mission of physicians from various aspects, mainly medical ethics. We have released the agreed outcomes to the world as ethical policy documents represented by the "WMA Declaration of Geneva" which was revised last year.

Based on the achievements of our predecessors, we must pursue the ethical issues more deeply and continue discussion to further improve the global assessment of the WMA.

The Japan Medical Association adopted “JMA Code of Medical Ethics” in 2000 and has been engaged in the activities to improve ethical awareness of the member physicians by establishing the ethical related committee within the association

This project for 2018 was launched mainly by Dr. Jon Snaedal of the Icelandic Medical Association. At the occasion of the WMA Icelandic General Assembly in 2018 when the association will celebrate its centennial anniversary, I hope that this conference will be a good opportunity for all the NMAs to review the ethical problems we face and reaffirm the most fundamental mission of the physicians.

I hope that as many medical associations as possible will participate in this conference in 2018.
