July 19, Freedom Beyond the "Right to Die"; Ethical and Policy Implications

Gateway End-of-Life Coalition hosts the 6th Annual Summer Speaker conference with speaker Harold Braswell, Ph.D., St Louis University, Assistant Professor of Health Care Ethics, Thursday, July 17, 8:30-11:30 am, on the St Louis University Medical Campus

This presentation provides a detailed introduction to the ethics of U.S. end-of-life care. It begins with a discussion of one of the central controversies in end-of-life ethics: medical aid in dying or the “right to die.” It then argues that we should move “beyond” the right to die to consider the ethical implications of U.S. hospice care more broadly. By moving beyond the right to die, we can have a fuller understanding of end-of-life ethics, and a richer toolkit to promote social justice for dying people.   Register Here
