Ethics in Dementia Care - Summer Course (5th edition)

2 juli 2019 - 5 juli 2019 | The Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe, Janseniusstraat 1, 3000 Leuven, BELGIUM | Centre for Biomedical Ethics / Law Faculty of Medicine/ KU Leuven in Belgium

The Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law of the KU Leuven is organizing the 5rd edition of the Summer Course on Ethics in Dementia Care (Leuven, Belgium, 2-5 July 2019). The objective of the course is to foster exchanges on foundational, clinical-ethical and organizational-ethical approaches to dementia care practices.

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 the 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 language of instruction will be English.

The Summer Course is of interest to participants from diverse professional backgrounds, such as medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, gerontology, health care administration, philosophy and theology, and to PhD students undertaking courses of study in these areas.
