Speaker: Randi Zlotnik Shaul, JD, LLM, PhD, Director of Bioethics, Department of Paediatrics, The Hospital for Sick Children

Ethical issues in the health care of children have been a consistent and provocative part of Bioethics discourse since its early history. Paediatric cases that have been debated in the ethics literature, disputed in legal forums and discussed through religious commentary have captured our hearts and nuanced our thinking. This seminar is linked to the Christine Harrison Education Award for the Integration of Theory and Practice. It will trace the history of Paediatric Bioethics, describe the current state of this dynamic field, highlight emerging issues that will be priorities in the decade ahead and finally underscore why this is important to health care across the age spectrum.
