Catholics in Health and Social Care: ethics and practice

St Mary’s University, the Anscombe Centre and the Bios Centre are holding three events on ethics and practice in health and social care. The events are aimed at Christians working in the health and social care sectors, but anybody is welcome to attend to discuss, amongst other topics, the challenges of assisted dying, the care of the dying and questions of conscientious objection in the workplace.

The events will take place in Edinburgh (19th March), London (2nd April) and by Zoom (14th May). There is a small charge for the Edinburgh and London events. Participants will include: Archbishop Leo Cushley, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh; Bishop John Sherrington, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster; Prof David Albert Jones, Director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre; Margaret Doherty, Director of the Centre for the Art of Dying Well; Dr Helen Watt, Senior Research Fellow of the Bios Centre. There will also be a panel discussion with chaplains and practitioners in health and social care.

As well as some fascinating talks and discussions, it will be an opportunity to network with others who take an interest in these vital issues.
