Vulnerable patients in acute care hospital

Equal health opportunities have many facets that interact in daily clinical practice. The claim to treat everyone equally in hospital often fails because not everyone is the same: Age, gender, disease, disability, education, origin, language, economic or political status can lead to specific needs that make people vulnerable. Caregiver teams should pay particular attention to recognizing this vulnerability and ensuring equal opportunities. USZ Ethic Day 2020 presents clinical and ethical perspectives on patient vulnerability and discusses them with experts in practice, education and research.
