Faith, medicine and choices at the end of life
CMFnz will be hosting a free webinar on end of life issues on Monday 22 June from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. We have several guests leading the discussion including Amanda Landers, a Palliative Care Physician, David Tripp, an intensivist, and Wendy Pattemore, a GP working in Palliative Care.
We will cover three main areas including:
- Good and faithful end of life care, and how to move beyond reluctance to discuss dying and discontinuing a treadmill of treatment.
- The COVID-19 pandemic and particular issues around end-of-life it raises.
- The End of Life Choice Act and upcoming referendum, and potential consequences if the Act comes into force.
All interested medical students, doctors and health professionals are welcome to join the webinar. You will be emailed a link to connect via Zoom on registering; registrations close at 9am on Monday 22 June.
We hope you can join us.
