What About the Family?, Short Course

    Duration

About

  • Taking an interdisciplinary approach, we welcome PhDs and Postdocs working in the field of ethics, as well as those working in health care (public health) more broadly: communication, sociology and medical anthropology.
  • How can familial relationships inform people’s approach to living with illness or disability? What are the choices people make around treatment options? What is the influence of broader social and cultural values on their responsibilities?
  • Health care is not only of great importance to individual patients. The impact of medical decisions can also have a devastating effect on a patient’s family and relatives. Care providers have very little opportunity to involve the family in the care given to a patient. Legislation and guidelines relating to healthcare revolve around the individual, despite the fact that patients make many of their decisions in consultation with the family. Questions needing more family-based ethics arise throughout the care sector, from home care and genetics to questions concerning the beginning and ending of life.
