Seminar series: Towards a European understanding of advance decision-making: a comparative, interdisciplinary approach

1st & 2nd September 2016, University of Leeds

This research seminar series considers a range of European legislative responses to anticipatory decision-making, seeking to explore those responses within the practical contexts within which advance decision-making occurs. It links legal discourse with policy and practice discourses, and considers how a shared understanding of the purpose and potential for anticipatory decision-making may facilitate the drafting of advance decisions that both reflect the author’s intentions and are likely to be capable of implementation by healthcare professionals at a later date. It is generously funded by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC).
