Medical Ethics Chapter Collection

The global population is ageing. With reduced birth rates and an ever-rising life expectancy, it is predicted that 24% of humanity will be over the age of 60 by the year 2050. With advanced age comes essential life-sustaining medical care, and with medical care comes many ethical dilemmas. 

In our latest content collection, you can explore the various ethical dilemmas that practitioners of geriatrics and palliative care face in their day-to-day work life, including informed consent from patients with dementia, family caregiving, and the role of spirituality and religion when it comes to decision-making. 

All chapters free to read until November 30th.
