Sunit Das, Medical, Legal and Ethical Definitions of Futility


What is medical futility? How do we define it? How does uncertainty about the meaning of what is futile direct us in the practical work of patient care? And how do we reconcile these questions with legal understandings of medical futility?

In this seminar, we will attempt to address these concerns through an exploration of both conceptual and practical issues of the ethics of medical futility.
