The ICMM Reference Centre for Education on IHL and Ethics, in cooperation with the Medical Services Directorate of the Swiss Armed Forces and the Center for Military Medical Ethics at Zurich University are pleased to announce the
7th Annual ICMM Workshop on Military Medical Ethics End-of-life care - ethical issues in military and humanitarian missions 4-6 May 2017 at Forum Lilienberg (CH) 2017
Topic and Call for Papers The main topic of the 2017 workshop will be End-of-life care - ethical issues in military and humanitarian missions. Ethical issues related to death and dying in clinical contexts have recently attracted much attention. In addition, legal regulations dealing with such issues as assisted suicide have also undergone changes in some countries. The medical personnel deployed in military and humanitarian missions face similar ethical issues in end-of-life situations to their civilian counterparts, but must deal with additional layers of complexity such as limited resources, language barriers, mission rules etc. We thus invite contributions that approach these problems by taking into account the specific roles and obligations of military and humanitarian health care personnel and that cover for example the following topics: - Physician-assisted dying and/or physician-assisted suicide. - Mercy killing - Medical rules of eligibility for intensive care units. Continuous care - Palliative - Burials and dealing with the dead We equally encourage reports from the field (e.g. case studies) as well as philosophic papers or legal analyses. Presentations are expected to last 25 minutes in order to leave enough time for plenary discussions. The presentations will be edited in a comprehensive book (Further information below: Conference Proceedings). Application process Please send your paper proposals/ abstracts (~200-300 words) together with a short CV via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15th January 2017. - We will notify all applicants until 5th February 2017 whether a proposal has been accepted. - For all selected speakers we cover the full conference fee as well as their travel expenses (economy class).
