End of Life: Advance Care Planning
Practical Bioethics, Vol 2, No. 2 and 3, Summer 2006
Pathways to Convergence Report
The Center for Practical Bioethics, with the support of Pew Charitable Trusts, engaged a small group of Catholic leaders from clinical, clerical, ethical, and theological perspectives in an extended discussion to explore areas of convergence and divergence around palliative care and advance care planning in American society. This steering group independently designed and directed the effort. That initial group also identified an additional two dozen Catholic leaders from diverse professional perspectives, educational backgrounds, and geographic regions to join in the discussion.
