RESOURCE Winter School
This Block Course aims to present and discuss ethical issues that arise in the context of old age, aging, caregiving and (medical) innovation. International scholars share results of their research evolving around questions such as: What role does well-being play in the older ages? How can people with cognitive decline participate in research? When and how is it right to extend one’s lifespan? Among these questions and many more, scholars of the university of Basel are presenting their research on aged prisoners as well as new technologies in aged care and their impact on caregivers and care recipients.
This course is open to all students interested in learning more about biomedical ethics evolving around the topic of aged care. Subscribed students will be asked to write a short essay about one of the ethical questions discussed during the Winter School.
