Physicians' Alliance Against Euthanasia

When: March 24th, 2018 9:00 am  to 5:00 pm
Location: Holiday Inn 999 Saint Urbain Street, Montréal, Québec H2Z 0B4 Canada
Event Fees: Physicans $200, Others $100, Students $25

With legal euthanasia and assisted suicide now a reality in Canada, we turn our attention to helping doctors and other health professionals improve their skills so as to better care for patients at risk of requesting death. This conference is an opportunity to learn from experts in palliative care and psychiatry, as well as to meet colleagues from across the country who share your concerns about the direction medicine is taking under these new laws.

The learning objectives for the conference are as follows:
  • Improve knowledge and skills related to analgesia at the end of life
  • Recognize existential distress in terminally ill patients
  • Knowledge of the indications and method for prescribing palliative sedation
  • Recognize and treat treatment-resistant depression in terminally ill patients
  • Recognize and address the biological, psychological and social factors underlying a patient's desire for hastened death
  • Understand the barriers to the development of palliative care at the societal level
