End of Life in Disorders of Consciousness - Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability Conference
March 24, 2017 –
The end of life in disorders of consciousness (DOC) is a fascinating condition but it is also one of great anguish for families, carers and health professionals. Discussions and debates continue to prove inconclusive and are likely to remain so till the end of time, oscillating between what is right and morally permissible and what is lawfully possible and necessary. However in the meantime the current clinical and legal process does not serve these patients well.
The RCP guidelines from 2013 have sought to address this and go a fair way in navigating a complex situation. We hope to create a forum at this one day conference where different and differing views can be expressed. Discerning minds will then take away what each need to help in their professional roles.
We are very pleased to announce Professor Derick Wade, Professor of Neurological Disability and Jim Beck, Healthcare and Welfare Lawyer at the Office of the Official Solicitor as speakers for this event.
We welcome as delegates medical & allied health professions, lawyers, commissioners and anyone else involved in end of life discussions for patients with a DOC.
