A one-day conference is taking place on 22nd June 2016 in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin entitled Medical Ethics, Consent, Capacity & End Of Life Care. It will examine the law relating to caring for vulnerable adults, adolescents and children. Recent developments in relation to consent, capacity and ethics, including ‘Advance Healthcare Directives’ (i.e. living wills) will also be discussed. The conference will be of interest to many healthcare professionals working in Ireland who are interested in these important issues about the medical treatment people may want in their future. The conference aims to help people better understand the evolving legal issues in this area by hearing from leading experts in the field. There will also be time to network and discuss current developments. You can book your place here.
