Long-Term Care and Physician-Assisted Suicide: 2015 Canadian Mennonite Health Assembly (CMHA)

In 2015, in a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of Canada, this country officially entered a brave new world – the world of legalized Physician Assisted Suicide (PAS).

In this “new world” there is a lot at stake for faith-based Long Term Care Homes who are serious about their Christian faith.
  • How do we understand this new legal reality?
  • How does it challenge some of our most basic beliefs?
  • How do we respond in good conscience?
  • What do we say to our residents, families, staff, government and media?
Our 2015 Assembly, October 22-24, 2015 addressed these questions. The plenary speaker presentations have been preserved on video:
  • "Getting a Handle on Ethics" by Paul Chamberlain
  • "The Ethics of Dying with Dignity" by Elmer Thiessen
  • "Suffering, Biblical Lament and Empathy" by Derek Suderman
  • "Loving Life and Dying Well" by Elmer Thiessen
  • "PAS (Physician-Assisted Suicide) Where do we go from here?" by Paul Chamberlain
