Compassionate, creative, courageous: The Catholic ethic of end of life care Dr Dan Fleming
Tuesday, 20th August, 2019 at 7:00pm
St. John’s Church, Clifton Hill

In this presentation, Dr Dan Fleming will provide an overview of the Catholic approach to end of life care, what it looks like within Catholic health and aged care services in Victoria, and how it continues in the context of Victoria's 'Voluntary Assisted Dying' legislation.
Dan’s presentation will focus on the categories of compassion, creativity and courageousness, using case studies to illustrate how the Catholic ethic of care is expressed in end of life care. He will also walk us through the process and guidelines developed collaboratively between Catholic health and aged care services in preparing for Victoria’s ‘Voluntary Assisted Dying’ legislation, which was enacted in June this year.
