Suicide vs. Wish to Die: Knowing the Difference and Our Ethical Obligations to Each Patient
The topic is going to surround the difference between patients expressing verbally that they want to die (ie: a cancer patient who decided that they no longer want to continue fighting and makes the decision for hospice) and a person expressing true suicidal ideation (ie: “I want to kill myself”) and everything in-between (ie: utterances in frustration and sociological gestures). Participants will be able to recognize the difference as well as ethical duties to each individual patient depending on what their respective needs may be. Speaker is Joseph Corbett.
