At the Epicenter: Cruzan and PSDA 20 Years later

November 12 and 13, 2010

Westin Crown Center
1 Pershing Road
Kansas City, MO
Dedicated to the family of Nancy Cruzan and to Father Richard McCormick

The Patient Self-Determination Act (PSDA) marks its 20th anniversary in 2010. It followed the Cruzan decision and codifies patients’ rights to choose or refuse treatment and to name someone to speak for them when they are no longer able to speak for themselves.
This milestone provides an opportunity to convene leading voices in law, medicine, theology and ethics. Participants will reflect on these events and explore a controversial and difficult topic rooted in these two landmark events, artificial nutrition and hydration.
