A Neighbour’s Helping Hand: A Discussion on the Ethics, Motivations and Obstacles of being a Good Samaritan (The Compassion and Social Justice Lecture Series – Virtual Edition)

Medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrest, are more likely to occur in locations other than a hospital or doctor’s office. As a community or family member, do you intervene in addition to calling for help? What if professional help isn’t readily available? Please join us as we dive deeper into the implications, rationale and ethics for the different levels of action including how rural and remote communities are tackling the subject.

Date: Thursday, October 21, 2021
