Programme

Advanced Ethics in Palliative and EOLC   

Date: Friday 03rd April 2020

As healthcare practitioners, we are faced with ethical dilemmas and difficult decisions on a daily basis. What to do when there is a conflict between what the patient wishes to do and what their family thinks should be done? How do we navigate a difference in opinion in our team about what a good death looks like? We must examine facts, balance alternatives and think through complex issues.

This conference will provide you with an opportunity to build your confidence, will enhance your skills and help you to develop strategies for dealing with difficult situations. By considering, discussing and debating a number of ethical dilemmas with others, you will increase your knowledge and learn how best to apply this knowledge and your enhanced skills in your practice.

Your employer will gain from this as you bring your enhanced skills back to your workplace, helping patient directly and also indirectly as you transfer knowledge and skills to your colleagues.
