IdeaFest 2018: Blessings and Burdens

Medical assistance in dying (MAiD) is now a Canadian health care reality. What does this mean for our understanding of human dignity, vulnerability and well-being in living-dying? Join local scholars, health care practitioners and family caregivers for a panel discussion focusing on the moral, spiritual and social issues associated with medically assisted dying. Panellists include: Peter Scales (Unitarian lay chaplain and Community Fellow, Centre for Studies in Religion and Society), Rosanne Beuthin (Care Coordinator, Island Health MAiD Program and Adjunct Professor, UVic School of Nursing) and Ted Rosenberg (MD, Home Team Medical Services and Clinical Assistant Professor, UBC Department of Family Medicine) For more information about events go to:
