A training day organised by St Mary’s University, the Anscombe Bioethics Centre and the Bios Centre
Are you looking for an opportunity to meet people motivated by their faith to care for others? Would you like to explore the unique contribution that faith makes to the health and social care sector? Are you interested in learning about the ethical challenges work in this sector may bring?
If so, you are invited to attend one of three training days organised by St Mary’s University, The Anscombe Bioethics Centre and the Bios Centre. The training day will discuss the appropriate Christian response to a wide range of challenges affecting practice in health and social care. Distinguished speakers will lead discussions on assisted suicide, hope-filled accompaniment for those who are dying, conscientious objection and arising policy challenges.
Although a Catholic ethical approach will be taken in most sessions, the events will be appropriate for any Christian or, indeed, anybody who is concerned about the ethical challenges for practitioners that are developing in the health and social care sector
Presentation topics include upcoming policy challenges in assisted dying, hope-filled accompaniment at the end of life, conscientious objection, and dealing with ethical issues in everyday practice.
