A Discussion of Why Organized Medicine Must Maintain Its Opposition to Assisted Suicide

KIE Acting Director Dr. Daniel Sulmasy will lead a webinar, hosted by the Catholic Health Association of the United States, on October 24th from 2-3pm. The webinar entitled "A Discussion of Why Organized Medicine Must Maintain Its Opposition to Assisted Suicide" will address the following objectives:

-Understand the ethical, professional and societal issues physicians and nurses need to consider when their professional societies ask membership to vote on adopting a neutral position on assisted suicide.

-Understand the political nature of this issue, both in professional societies and in the broader public policy process, and the importance of the clinician’s voice/perspective in advocating for high-quality care for seriously ill and dying patients.

-Understand how to evaluate and interpret the data and views being presented on the perceived acceptance of assisted-suicide among physicians and the public.
