Physician Assisted Death

In this lecture, we will review physician-assisted death and non-beneficial treatment, including important publications, policies, and legislation. We will also discuss the future of medical-decision making, and how to find the balance between a patient’s right to request treatments and a physician’s professional role in determining what is medically appropriate.

James Downar, MDCM, MHSc (Bioethics), FRCPC, is a Critical Care and Palliative Care Physician at the University Health Network and Sinai Health Systems, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at U of T. He is the chair of the Postgraduate Education Committee of the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians, the chair of the Ethical Affairs committee of the Canadian Critical Care Society, and a former co-Chair of the Advisory Council of Physicians for Dying with Dignity, a non-profit organization advocating for the legalization of assisted death in Canada.
