Challenging Decisions at the End of Life: An Ethical Perspective

May 11, 2018 - Sobell Study Centre, Oxford

Decision-making at the end of life is beset with sometimes agonising ethical and legal challenges. These challenges are not just philosophical but practical: clinicians encounter ethical problems on a daily basis when making decisions about the care of patients approaching the end of life, whether relating to DNACPR decisions, withdrawal of treatment decisions, or artificial nutrition and hydration. Patients often have reduced decision-making capacity and their quality of life may be very difficult to judge accurately. Patients, relatives and clinicians may have strong and potentially conflicting views about the relative importance of values such as preserving life or minimising suffering.

This study day aims to offer an introduction to approaching complex ethical problems at the end of life. It will also provide an overview of the key philosophical debates relevant to each topic as well as the relevant legal frameworks.

Participants will work through case studies which will provide an opportunity to consider these issues in more depth, and to be stimulated and challenged by the viewpoints of others in a supportive environment. Participants will be invited to discuss examples from their own practice which they have found particularly thought-provoking or difficult.

Participants will gain confidence in thinking through complex dilemmas they encounter in their future clinical practice and hopefully be stimulated to further enquiry. They will also have the opportunity to develop a more in-depth understanding of the ethical principles.

Cost: £95
