Hi all,

Apologies for cross-posting.


Macquarie University's Research Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics invites you to a two-day workshop on "Dementia Care: Moral Theory and Practical Challenges".

Dates: 29 & 30 May 2019
Time: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Venue: Theatre 102, MGSM, Macquarie University (99 Talavera Rd; F23 on campus map https://www.mq.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0016/108142/Campus-Map.pdf)

This two-day interdisciplinary workshop aims to bring together scholars from different fields of research such as philosophy and applied ethics, legal studies, clinical medicine, and cognitive sciences to discuss various topics on how moral theories deal with practical challenges in the context of dementia care. On the first day, speakers discuss how people with dementia pose challenges for many of the existing accounts of dignity, moral agency, personhood, and capacity to consent. The second day of the workshop follows the theoretical discussions by focusing more on practical challenges of dementia care such as using assistive technologies, legal issues of substituted decision-making, and antipsychotic treatment for people with dementia in long-term care facilities. At the end of the workshop, there will be a roundtable discussion to share ideas and talk about future plans.
