LOCATION: 155 College Street, 7th Floor

Abstract: Bioethicists have mainly been seen as contributors to healthcare who reside in the halls of hospitals and academia. If we believe in promoting good health care along the continuum of life including illnesses then anticipating and planning for difficult healthcare decisions should be made earlier in the continuum of care. The intent of this presentation is to explore the benefits of ethics outreach.

To discuss the merit of moving bioethics beyond hospitals
To promote preventative ethics as a means to improve hospital wait times
To engage the community in planning before a health care crisis
To support ethics education to the general public, residents and staff of community agencies
The University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics Seminar Series is an accredited continuing education activity under CFPC
