You are cordially invited to our upcoming webinar entitled “Relational Autonomy: Rethinking Informed Consent in Healthcare from Cross-Cultural and Religious Perspectives”.
Rethinking Informed Consent in Healthcare from Cross-Cultural and Religious Perspectives
26 January 2022 (Wednesday)
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (Hong Kong Time)
Live Zoom Session
The requirement of informed consent in healthcare and biomedical research tends to be construed and implemented in ways that are overtly individualistic and without adequate recognition of the attending social, cultural and religious conditions. Drawing from contributions in the edited monographs “Cross-Cultural and Religious Critiques of Informed Consent” and “Medical Decision-Making on Behalf of Young Children”, contributing authors and commentators discuss key arguments and implications of this contribution to the bioethical literature on informed consent.
