The Forum


In this special Open Day event, you'll be given the opportunity to join four eminent University of Adelaide researchers in an exploration of one of the most passionately debated issues of our time - euthanasia.

Open discussion will be preceded by comprehensive presentations on four key perspectives as they apply in SA: legal, psychiatric, palliative care and ethical.

All major issues will be addressed, including the distinction between active and passive euthanasia, the "dilemma of definition", the "doctrine of double-effect" and varying international experiences. Everyday realities for families and carers will also be considered, as will the balance between self-determination and social cohesion.

If this issue affects or interests you in any way, this is an event not to be missed.
