Strengthen your ethical practice: Care at the end of life

Tuesday, January 26, 2016, 12–12:45 p.m. ET

End-of-life issues came to the forefront with the 2015 Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Carter v. Canada, which removed the prohibition against physician-assisted death within specific parameters. Yet, assisted death is only one part of the broad area that end-of-life issues involve. This webinar explores these wider issues using different scenarios and real situations. Learn how each scenario’s unique circumstances and ethical and legal aspects call for different responses from nurses. Discover challenges and opportunities for professional growth when providing end-of-life care.

Presented by:
