1,001 Ethical Issues with Voluntarily Stopping of Eating and Drinking
Ralf J. Jox
While the professional and public discussion has been focusing on assisted suicide for many years, another practice at the end of life has largely been neglected: voluntary stopping of eating and drinking (VSED). The latter is increasingly being advocated as a presumably more humane and ethically less problematic alternative to assisted suicide. Dr. Jox challenges this view in this presentation.
Are Caregivers Prophetic Leaders A New Look at a Very Old Idea
Fr. Tuohey uses art along with biblical and historical accounts, to explore what it means to be prophetic leaders in health care. Is it possible that each caregiver can be prophetic leaders without being in charge or takin center stage on some issues?
Providence Center for Health Care Ethics manages three funded lectureships, as well as the Andy & Bev Honzel Endowed Chair in Health Care Ethics Lecture, and Core Curriculum III: Special Topics in Health Care Ethics. Our collection addresses ethical issues in health care, issues in palliative care, and humanities in health care. These presentations contain views that are those of the speaker and not necessarily those of Providence Center for Health Care Ethics.
