1. New CASE website:

Just before Christmas we released version three of the CASE website which is simpler and more accessible than previous versions. The site is also more interactive with constantly changing content and the use of forums for the exchange of ideas (to be launched in February 2009). If you explore this site you’ll note that:

  • The site has more content than ever
  • The content is now in more varied forms (pdf, html, video, pod casts, blog posts)
  • The categories for all content are a little clearer
  • CASE events are now promoted more obviously on the site

2. CASE conference on medical ethics: Saturday 21st March 2009

We are excited about a one-day CASE conference that is planned for the 21st March this year on the topic of Medical ethics: Christian perspectives on life and death. This is our first attempt to bring to Sydney a forum where those interested in a biblical approach to the very topic issue of medical ethics can meet like-minded colleagues.  The conference will cover a broad sweep of ethically issues in the medical field. We think it will be a vital day for students and practitioners in the health professions, for Christian workers and indeed, for all Christians.

Topics are:

  • Why should Christians be interested in ethics in Medicine?
  • Ethical issues at the beginning of life
  • Medical research involving children
  • The ‘euthanasia debate’: clarifying the issues, the notion of autonomy and a Christian response
  • Victorian abortion legislation—where does conscientious objection fit in?
  • ‘My Soul Died When My Baby Died’: The Grief of Abortion

There will also be a panel consisting of the day’s speakers when participants can ask any questions to do with bioethics.

The conference will run from 8.30-4pm and will be held at New College in Sydney (UNSW). 

3. Living and dying ethically (Case #17)

The current issue of Case magazine (Case #17) is out. Case #17 focuses on medical ethics. Issues covered include ‘Bioethics and the future’, principle-based ethics, beginning- and end-of-life issues and a thought-provoking off-the-topic article critiquing 21st century educational attitudes and practices. Become a CASE Associate to receive a copy of Case #17 and the subsequent three issues of Case.
