Fremantle’s Notre Dame University is holding a very interesting forum on a controversial topic that will interest most people in our community, especially the older ones

‘A Conversation about End of Life Issues: Considerations following the release of the Parliamentary Report by the Joint Committee on End of Life Choices’

Wednesday 19 September | 6.00pm-8.30pm
The University of Notre Dame Australia
Tannock Hall of Education, Corner of Croke and Cliff Streets, Fremantle

End of life care is of great concern to many within our community, particularly those suffering from acute physical illness, or those employed in the medical or healthcare professions. The issue has and is likely to generate a substantial amount of public debate in the coming months given the findings and recommendations of the report from the State Parliament’s Joint Select Committee on End of Life Choices in Western Australia.

The University wishes to facilitate a respectful discussion on all relevant aspects to this issue, including palliative care, living wills and euthanasia, so that a range of views and perspectives can be heard. We look forward to seeing you at this important event.

Guest presenters at the forum will include:
Professor David Kissane (The University of Notre Dame Australia and St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney)
Dr Richard Lugg (Department of Health WA and Doctors for Assisted Dying Choice)
Dr Murray Hindle (Dying with Dignity WA)
Ms Lana Glogowski (Palliative Care WA)
Mr Chris Shanahan SC (Barrister, Murray Chambers)

Please register your attendance by Monday 17 September

For further information, please contact Ms Ana Ferreira Manhoso at fremantle.events@nd.edu.au or on 08 9433 0575.
