Book Spotlight - August 2018
Continue to watch this space for promotions highlighting one of the books recently added to the PLA Library collection, as well as old favourites we think may be of interest to our PLA Library users.
Today's spotlight is on the book, Assisted Death: Legal, Social and Ethical Issues after Carter. This text was recently added to the PLA Library Collection and is available for borrowing for current PLA Members.
From the Publisher
Physician-assisted dying, or "medical assistance in dying", as it is now known, was decriminalized in certain circumstances as a result of the Supreme Court of Canada's 2015 decision in Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) and implemented through Bill C-14 in 2016. This timely collection of 13 papers, developed out of a national academic symposium held in September 2017, examines the social, ethical and legal implications of the Carter I and Carter II decisions and offer meaningful reflections to the many perplexing questions currently being asked about MAiD.
Published: June 8, 2018 by LexisNexis.

PART I: CARTER'S IMPACT ON CANADIAN LEGAL DOCTRINE
PART II: CHARTER IMPLICATIONS FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS AND INSTITUTION
PART III: THE FUTURE OF PALLIATIVE CARE IN CANADA AND SAFEGUARDS MOVING FORWARD
