Disarming Dialogues: Teaching Ethics and Advocating for Change in Healthcare (TEACH)

8:30 am–5:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi


‘The coming together of two laudable movements – death with dignity and cost containment – concerns me. Patients have a right to die. But do they have a duty to die?'  
– Mark Siegler, Executive Director, Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence

In our continuing quest to advance ethics and humanity in medicine, the Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence, University of Chicago and the Medical Humanities Group of University College of Medical Sciences, University of Delhi, and Delhi Medical Council proudly present the third phase of the highly successful Disarming Dialogues program inaugurated in 2016.

Through DD-TEACH (Teaching Ethics and Advocating for Change in Healthcare), participants from ethics committees and others with a special interest in ethics from various medical institutions in Delhi will interact with experts and will be able to:

  • Defend the need to formally include discussion on ethical issues in the medical curriculum

  • Identify the gains and challenges in the recent Supreme Court decision on euthanasia and advanced medical directive

  • Discuss the ethical dimensions of the euthanasia debate

This event is by invitation only.
