Euthanasia

Video of Dr Ewan Goligher available!

Last October, the deVeber Institute co-hosted its Annual Public Lecture with Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. Our Special guest was Dr. Ewan Goligher who spoke "On Saying "No": the Ethics of Conscientious Objection in Healthcare":

What's the difference anyways? Palliative Care versus MAID/MAD (Medical Aid in Dying)

There is growing confusion concerning end-of-life issues: what is palliative care, what can families expect if they ask for palliative care versus medical-aid-in-dying, and what is the difference?

Attention: Palliative care is NOT medical-aid-in-dying (MAID/MAD).
