The Thinker – Session 7B End of Life Decisions

image

Our interpretation of the famous sculpture of The Thinker by the French artist Auguste Rodin was chosen as the picture for the session at the International Symposium on ALS/MND on End of Life Decisions.

In a new format for the symposium, this session will take the form of a debate. Three distinguished speakers will discuss different perspectives of assisted dying. You will be able to follow comments on the #alssymp ‘hashtag’ on Twitter. The MND Association statement on assisted dying is on our website. One of the Association’s priorities is to ensure that more people with MND, where ever they live, will be able to access specialist and appropriate palliative and end of life care.

Our End of Life Guide was written to provide better information about the options and services available at the end of life, giving people the freedom of choice to make plans at a time of their choosing.
