End of Life Choices

Fremantle 19 Sep 2018

Date: Wednesday 19 September, 2018
Time: 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Tannock Hall, Corner of Croke and Cliff Streets, Fremantle

The University of Notre Dame Australia invites you to a discussion on the topic ‘A Conversation about End of Life Issues: Considerations following the release of the Parliamentary Report by the Joint Committee on End of Life Choices’, hosted by the University’s School of Medicine and Fremantle Campus.

End of life care is of great concern to many within our community, particularly those suffering from acute physical illness, or those employed in the medical or healthcare professions.  The issue has already and is likely to generate a substantial amount of public debate in the coming months given the findings and recommendations of the report from the State Parliament’s Joint Select Committee on End of Life Choices in Western Australia.

The University wishes to facilitate a respectful discussion on all relevant aspects to this issue, including palliative care, living wills and euthanasia, so that a range of views and perspectives can be heard.  Guest presenters at the forum will include: Professor David Kissane (The University of Notre Dame Australia and St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney), Dr Richard Lugg (Department of Health WA and Doctors for Assisted Dying Choice), Dr Murray Hindle (Dying with Dignity WA), Ms Lana Glogowski (Palliative Care WA) and Mr Chris Shanahan SC (Barrister, Murray Chambers).

We look forward to seeing you at this important event. Please RSVP below by Friday 14 September. For further information, please contact Ana Ferreira Manhoso at fremantle.events@nd.edu.au or on 08 9433 0575.
