Health Ethics Symposia

Health Ethics Symposium 2018


In an age of revolutionary technologies, medical assistance in dying (MAiD), stretched resources, aging baby-boomers, specialized clinicians, and eroding trust, how can our health system ensure that when the time comes, all patients have a good death. Please join us to address key questions about what we have learned about dying well in the modern age, and how clinicians throughout the health care system can assist their patients in navigating illness, health deterioration, care planning, palliation, and MAiD amidst frequent uncertainty.
