WEBI­NARQUÉBEC’S NEW LAW ON ADVANCED MED­ICAL CARE DIRECTIVES

NOV. 22
1:30PM TO 3PM

This talk (in French) will address two parts of this new law: advance med­ical direc­tives and med­ical aid in dying. Advance direc­tives let you indi­cate in advance your wishes about cer­tain kinds of med­ical treat­ment in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions. You’ll learn how to make them and when they can be used. Med­ical aid in dying means giv­ing med­ica­tion to accel­er­ate a person’s death, at the request of that per­son. The pur­pose is to relieve severe suf­fer­ing. You’ll learn about who can make this kind of request and the duties of doctors.

Guest Speak­ers:

Sahra Chebli and Sarah Dougherty, lawyers from Éducaloi.
