Bioethecist and Medical scientist, who talks on Euthanasia from the perspective of withdrawing of care from patients and how this differs from assisted suicide.
Michael interviews Dr. Michał Pruski, Bioethecist and Medical scientist, who talks on Euthanasia from the perspective of withdrawing of care from patients and how this differs from assisted suicide.
Dr Pruski speaks in relation to his work namely his recent publication entitled, WITHDRAWAL OF NUTRITION AND HYDRATION, AND WITHDRAWAL OF VENTILATION: WHAT DOES TRADITION SAY?
With guidance from the British Medical Association and Royal College of Physicians on the withdrawal of nutrition from patients, and how the cause of death is being recorded, the debate surrounding withdrawal of care and treatment has been rekindled in pro life circles. Following this Dr. Pruski highlights some of traditional principles that form the basis of such decision-making. He discusses these within the context of the withdrawal of nutrition and hydration (NaH), as well as ventilation, to elucidate the key points.
