« All Events

March 19, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

This training day is for those who are interested in learning about the ethical challenges of work in this sector looking and an opportunity to meet people motivated by their faith to care for others.

It takes place at The Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Road, Edinburgh, on Saturday 19 March from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Register here.

The event features:

  • Archbishop Leo Cushley
    Archbishop of St Andrews & Edinburgh.

    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.
  • Panel Discussion
    With chaplains and practitioners in health and social care.

Speakers will lead discussions on assisted suicide, hope-filled accompaniment for those who are dying, conscientious objection and arising policy challenges.

It is one of three training days organised by St Mary’s University, The Anscombe Bioethics Centre and the Bios Centre.

The event will also discuss the appropriate Christian response to a wide range of challenges affecting practice in health and social care.

Although a Catholic ethical approach will be taken in most sessions, the events will be helpful for any Christian or, indeed, anybody who is concerned about the ethical challenges for practitioners that are developing in the health and social care sector.

Catholics in Health and Social Care: Ethics and Practice takes place on Saturday 19 March from 9:30am to 3:30pm at The Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Road, Edinburgh. The event costs £20 and you can register here. For more information please contact marianne.rozario@stmarys.ac.uk
