Biomedical ethics Elderly Case-based
Attendees with an interest in ethical challenges in the treatment of the aging and elderly; those who enjoy debate and lively discussion; and those who wish to discuss cross-cultural application of the principles of classical biomedical ethics.

This interactive workshop is structured around 3 case studies with a geriatric focus. The intent is to analyse the problems presented in each situation using precepts of modern biomedical ethics and to develop a consensus regarding the appropriateness of the care that was provided in each case. The workshop will not concern itself with end-of-life care, but rather will examine decision-making in common daily practice situations. It is hoped that participants will not only provide lively discussion, but also, present cultural attitudes and interventions that differ from more traditional approaches.
