From 12 till 18 August 2019 hosts the 3rd edition of the summer school 'What About the Family? - Ethical Issues in Health Care'. The focus of this summer school is especially on questions related to person-centered and shared decision making, screening (from preconception till adult screening) healthy ageing and ‘end of life care’.
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, also PhDs and Postdocs working in the field of ethics are invited to take part, as well as those working in health care (public health) more broadly: communication, sociology and medical anthropology.
Set in the beautiful, historical city of Groningen, participants will spend the week enhancing their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical approaches to ethics of families, and their applications. Participants will have many opportunities to present their own research and benefit from feedback from internationally renowned scholars.
