Do any of the following scenarios sound familiar to you? A mother of two young children refuses affordable life-saving cancer treatment that will leave her children in the care of their estranged father. Her decision distresses her children and disquiets the medical team. Another young mother requests the medical team to provide her all possible interventions to prolong her survival because she does not want her children to become motherless. Some members of the team, however, feel that her request is not entirely reasonable.

This webinar uses case studies to discuss and apply core ethical principles, providing an ethics lens to understanding patients’ treatment decisions, and explores how HCPs can respond more appropriately to patients’ decisions.
