Peter is a senior intensive care specialist working in Newcastle and in Maitland.

He also chairs the End of Life Law for Clinicians project, an initiative of the Commonwealth Government

Plenary - WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?

Australia is the most successful country on the planet at preventing premature death in its citizens, and ranked #2 in the world for end of life care. At the same time, we have the highest support for euthanasia, reflecting a fear that we will lose control of our care at the most crucial time. Perhaps we fear that medicine has become a machine that processes us, rather than serves us. This talk focusses on how the most difficult of all medical decisions is made - when is enough, enough - looking at how this has evolved over the past 50 years, and where we are heading as the baby boomers take their turn…
