Event Details


Description: This webinar will be a discussion of recent court decisions including Rasouli and their implications for patients, health professionals, and the health system. 

Outcome: Hassan Rasouli went into a Toronto hospital for brain surgery nearly three years ago, contracted an infection and has been in a coma ever since. His doctors wanted to take him off life support. The Rasouli family said no, believing there were signs of possible recovery. But medical professionals felt they should have the final say in end-of-life decisions. Whose life is it? The matter of Cuthbertson et al and Rasouli et al was heard at the Supreme Court of Canada on December 10, 2012. On October 18, 2013, the long awaited decision was released by the SCC, and this webinar deals with the meaning and implications of that decision..
