Harvard Medical School Annual Bioethics Conference 2019: Controlling Death: The Policies, Practices, and Ethics of Choosing When We Die
The Harvard Medical School Annual Bioethics Conference convenes leaders in the field to explore ethical questions and concerns in health care. Held each April, this conference facilitates conversations among experts and supports members of ethics committees, health care professionals, bioethicists, administrators, attorneys, and others who are interested in addressing ethical issues.
The 2019 Annual Bioethics Conference will explore ethical, legal, and clinical aspects of evolving practices of euthanasia and physician-assisted death. How ought we to think about the choices of determining the time and manner of death for our loved ones, our patients, and ourselves? How should the health and legal professions respond to these rapidly evolving practices and choices?
