REGULAR EVENTS - PHILOSOPHY

Moral Philosophy Seminars 

 

Religion and Futility in the Intensive Care Unit

Religion and Futility in the Intensive Care Unit

8th May 2017 2:00pm-5:00pm

A half-day seminar exploring issues around religion, pluralism and medical ethics

8 May 2017, 14:00 - 17:00 (refreshments included)

Jesus College, Oxford.

A child is critically ill in the intensive unit. Doctors believe that the child’s prognosis is very poor and that treatment should be withdrawn. However, her parents do not agree. They say that it is contrary to their religion to stop treatment.

How often is religion a source of disagreement about treatment in intensive care? What are the views of major religions about withdrawing treatment in intensive care?
Should religious requests for treatment be treated differently from secular requests? Should religious preferences for treatment count in a child? Should religious views be accommodated when providing scarce and expensive medical resources?

This seminar is aimed at health professionals/ethicists/philosophers/theologians/chaplains.

Guest Speaker: Prof John Paris S.J., Professor of Bioethics, Boston College

Speakers/Panel Participants: John Paris, Joe Brierley, Sarah Barclay, David Jones, John Wyatt, Siddiq Diwan, Dominic Wilkinson

Fees:  Early bird registration £15/10* if register by 28th February, £25/20* subsequently
