Welcome to Toronto Health Economics and Technology Assessment Collaborative

SMDM 2015 - 2nd Biennial Asia-Pacific Conference

THETA Collaborative presents at the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) 2015 - 2nd Biennial Asia-Pacific Conference, January 08 - January 10, 2016, at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong.

Theme: Making Difficult Clinical and Policy Decisions: The Example of Ageing and End of Life Care in Asia-Pacific.

Much of modern medical education and research has been devoted to preventing and treating illnesses and delaying death. In comparison, there has been little attention in teaching, practising, policy making and research into patients’ death and dying – something that most health professionals face in their work; and ultimately, a reality that we all face. In medicalising the aging, terminally ill, death and dying, many discussions of end of life (EOL) decisions are ‘medicine’ focused resulting in aggressive therapies that shorten patients’ lives instead of improving them, particularly when surrounded by many uncertainties. Instead, having the best practices to adopt, implement and enable ‘person’ or ‘patient’‐ oriented decision making, can enhance people’s EOL with fulfilment, satisfaction, autonomy and dignity.
