End-of-Life Care: Bioethical Perspectives and Conflict Resolution

Brooklyn Law School Symposium Advisory

END-OF-LIFE CARE: BIOETHICAL PERSPECTIVES AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION A David G. Trager Public Policy Symposium Sponsored by the Center for Health, Science and Public Policy

Thursday, February 8, 2007, 9:00 am 5:00 pm, 250 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201 RSVP: http://www.brooklaw.edu/rsvp or 718-780-7966

End-of-life care is vitally important to patients, their families, medical providers, and the public. Yet no consensus has emerged on the type and duration of medical treatments that are appropriate at the end of life. How do we decide when to say enough is enough? How do we resolve con?icts among family members and among families, the patient, and doctors?

In this symposium an internationally recognized group of medical and legal experts (listed below) will debate these questions in the context of selected, typical cases. They will analyze the interests at stake in these cases, provide cross-national perspectives, and evaluate a range of conflict resolution models. CLE credit is available.
