Second International Conference on End of Life Law, Ethics, Policy and Practice (ICEL2)
Canada’s Dalhousie Health Law Institute, the Australian Centre for Health Law Research at the Queensland University of Technology, and the Dutch and Belgian Based International Collaborative for End of Life Care Research invite you to join us for a thought-provoking, informative, and timely program on a broad range of end of life issues.
This is a multidisciplinary, multisectoral, and multinational conference, with presenting disciplines including, but not limited to, law, medicine, nursing, philosophy and bioethics, and sectoral representation spanning practitioners, academics, NGOs, and regulators an policy-makers. We will engage with empirical evidence about, and legal and ethical analysis of, many of the most pressing and vexing issues of our time. Leading experts from around the world will present on their findings. Participants will engage with others who are wrestling with the challenges of end of life care. We will reflect on lessons learned from experiences in various jurisdictions (including Canada, which will be one year post the implementation of new federal medical assistance in dying legislation). Please join us for a 2 ½ day deep dive into stopping/not starting potentially life-sustaining treatment, palliative sedation, medical assistance in dying, and the next generation end of life issues.
