1st Ethics Day “The place of the child in his care

The care pathway of a child with a malignant disease involves the performance of numerous care procedures. These are not always understood or accepted by the child. The practice of pediatric oncology care therefore exposes professionals to the refusal of some children. These complex situations confront caregivers with ethical dilemmas: occasional or systematic refusal, refusal of a particular care or more globally of the treatment. A tension between respect for the rights of the child and medical ethics, between concern and the obligation to care.

In this context, a day on “The place of the child in his care” is organized:


Tuesday, October 4, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Armand Trousseau Hospital site,
Sorel Amphitheater, Chigot Building,
Door 18: see attached program and plan.

This day will help clarify the issues, dilemmas and ethical tensions encountered daily in oncology. Putting these situations into words will help open up pragmatic avenues for responding to these difficult situations.

Registrations are to be made with the continuing education department via the Sharepoint platform. There are still places available!

We look forward to seeing you.
