“In discussions of end of life decision-making the ethical or legal Doctrine of Double Effect remains a hotly debated topic. We have assembled a unique set of perspectives, for and against, normative and descriptive, ethical, legal, social, psychological, theological, and medical, to stimulate productive discussion on this area of both practical and theoretical controversy.

Who should attend: Doctors and all Healthcare professionals, academics and students in fields related to this topic such as medicine, philosophy, social science, law, psychology and theology.

LIMITED FREE PLACES FOR Full or part time postgraduate students in the relevant disciplines, PhD Students and Medical Students and Trainees may apply to for a bursary place (Please note this does not include dinner, which must be booked separately).”
