In Memoriam: Rev. Kevin O'Rourke, OP

Fr. Kevin O'Rourke The Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics mourns the loss of its founding Director, Rev. Kevin O'Rourke, O.P. Fr. Kevin passed away on March 28, 2012 at the age of 85. Fr. Kevin established the Center in 1979 as a division of the Department of Medicine, and led as its director until 1999.

He had a profound impact on the field of health care ethics, at times touching on controversial issues. In his moving tribute, James DuBois, PhD, DSc, stated that Fr. Kevin was, "a courageous ethicist, an ethicist who was willing to pursue the truth publicly even when doing so was sure to cause friction and complaints." His wisdom, leadership and friendship will be greatly missed.

RePAIR Program Seeks Partnerships

RePAIR Program Visit the Restoring Professionalism and Integrity in Research (RePAIR) program's new website at www.repairprogram.org! The RePAIR program was developed with a $500,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to provide intensive professional development education for researchers who engaged in wrongdoing or unprofessional behavior. Modeled on physician remediation programs, the RePAIR program will draw from best available evidence to foster ethical decision-making, adaptive thinking patterns, and good stress and work management habits among researchers. The RePAIR program currently seeks to establish partnerships with institutions to provide training, and individuals may now register for the first rounds of training which will begin in the fall of 2012. For more information visit www.repairprogram.org.
