Ethics in Dementia Care

06-07-2016 - 08-07-2016


The number of persons with dementia will rise considerably in the years to come. The increasing prevalence of dementia and the treatment and care for people with dementia present a myriad of important ethical questions and responsibilities. What do we think of the quality of life of people with dementia and of their subsequent end of life? What are the opinions about vulnerability and dignity in case of dementia? What do we consider to be ‘good care’ and ‘a good death’ for persons with dementia?

The objective of this summer course is to foster exchanges on foundational, clinical-ethical and organisational-ethical approaches to dementia care. During the course, national and international experts will give presentations on various ethical topics in the domain of dementia care. Time will be provided for intensive discussion and interaction.

The course is of interest to participants from diverse professional backgrounds, such as health care administration, medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, philosophy and theology, and is open to healthcare and social workers, people from universities, university colleges, and patient associations, and members of ethics committees, and to PhD students undertaking courses of study in these areas.
