a)  outlines law and guidance around decision-making about life-sustaining treatment  (in the UK) and review diverse ethical debates

b) provides practical training in how to collate relevant information, run a best interests meeting, address differences of opinion, accommodate conscientious objection, and document decisions.

 

A trial version of the course will be ready in July. f you’d like to trail the course please email Jenny Kitzinger: KitzingerJ@cardiff.ac.uk
