Faith, Ethics and Organ Donation Conference by the Woolf Institute

by | Feb 5, 2020

Overview

The one-day conference to be held on Monday 17 February 12-5pm will bring together medical professionals and representatives of various faiths in order to discuss the ethical challenges arising from the practice of organ donation and transplantation. In light of the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act 2019 , a discussion of the potential ethical implications of this new law is timely. The overall purpose of the conference is to encourage a critical exchange on the relevant ethical issues between medical professionals, academics, faith representatives and the wider public. The confirmed speakers include:

Dr Idris Baker, Consultant in Palliative Medicine in Swansea, Wales.

Dr Joe Brierly, Paediatric Consultant at GOSH.

Professor David Katz, Professor of Immunopathology (Emeritus) at University College London.

Ms Romana Kazmi, Muslim Chaplain, King’s College London.

Professor Gurch Randhawa, Professor of Diversity in Public Health and Director, Institute for Health Research, University of Bedfordshire.

Dr Farrah Raza, Stipendiary Lecturer in Public Law, Pembroke College, University of Oxford (Chair).

Dr Andrew Tiel, Chaplain, Fellow & Lecturer in Theology, Pembroke College Oxford.

Pardis Gharehbeglou, PhD Student at SOAS, University of London.
