Y. Tan, Director of The St. Francis International Center for Healthcare Ethics, who holds degrees in both law and medicine. Dr. Tan also serves as Emeritus Professor for the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine.
A Full Day of Great Speakers
Through a full day of presentations, attendees will have opportunities to participate in a robust discussion and debate involving the ethical issues of dementia care. A distinguished faculty, local and international, will share diverse viewpoints on the subject. There will be representatives from Australia and Singapore.
The program will also feature provocative case studies based on scenarios dealing with patients and their caregivers. The case studies will involve an 80-year-old with severe dementia in need of a pacemaker and hemodialysis; a 45-year-old homeless veteran with dementia; and a rich son, a loving mother and father with Alzheimer’s disease.
The conference will also feature scholarly poster presentations and local exhibitors.
