APHN-Hospis Malaysia Palliative Care Workshops: Clinical Ethics In Palliative Care

APHN-Hospis Malaysia Workshop

WORKSHOP ON CLINICAL ETHICS IN PALLIATIVE CARE (01-02 APRIL 2017)

Much of the issues involved in medical ethics revolve around the issue of illness and the preservation of life. As Palliative Care deals with patients and families at the transitions of care, issues surrounding medical ethics become more common. There is increasing public discussion in areas such as withholding and withdrawal of treatment, mental capacity, medical futility and physician assisted suicide and euthanasia. Those involved in palliative care should be aware of both ethical issues as well as the clinical evidence that should guide their practice. This workshop deals with many of the ethical issues in palliative care mainly through case discussions.
