Medical assistance in dying: What has happened in the past year?


In February 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) decided the Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) case, which radically changed the end-of-life care landscape. This ground breaking decision legalized physician-assisted suicide for competent adults who consent to their termination of life and who are experiencing intolerable suffering as the result of a grievous and irremediable medical condition. On June 17, 2016, the federal government passed a legislative framework for medical assistance in dying (Bill C-14). This presentation will discuss the Carter decision and Bill C-14 and will address the resulting issues with which the health care system continues to struggle. There will be a particular focus on the nursing profession as well as the challenges of ensuring fair and equitable access to assisted dying in different communities across Canada.

Infective Endocarditis: A Review and Update of a Clinical Enigma

Infective endocarditis, despite the use of antibiotics and cardiac surgery, remains a life-threatening disease. This harsh reality is attributed to congestive heart failure that comes from incompetence of a normal, defective, or prosthetic valve, or from destruction of the heart itself. Unfortunately, diagnosis and treatment may be delayed. This is due, in part, to the vague and, at times, baffling clinical picture of this disease and to the frequency with which antibiotics are administered prior to obtaining a microbiological diagnosis. Nurses play a pivotal role in the prevention, early recognition, diagnostic work-up, and prompt, effective treatment of this devastating disease and its complications. A review and update of this striking, yet elusive disease is provided in this webinar. By transferring current knowledge into practice, nurses will be better able to plan, implement, and evaluate the care needed by this unique and challenging patient population. Read more...
