Futile care: the ethics of when to stop treatment, convened by Professor Jeffrey Zajac, Head, Department of Medicine (Austin Health), University of Melbourne.
Most medical care is given to patients in the last year of their lives. Although most of this care is appropriate and beneficial, some is futile and merely exacerbates the process of dying. This seminar will discuss the ethics of the decision to stop life prolonging medical treatment.
