Ethical Issues and Human Ageing

Semester 2, 2021 at Catholic Theological College

Australians are now living longer as individuals and as a society. A wide range of ethical issues and challenges confront us on the journey into old age. These will be common to all citizens. For Christians attentive to the Gospel imperative to work towards a just and compassionate society, a high priority must be given to the spiritual and community dimensions of care for ageing members. Detailed ethical explorations of key issues will be the focus of this course.

The course will be offered online over six Saturdays: 31 July; 7 and 28 August; 11 September; 9 and 23 October: 10am to 12pm then 2pm to 4pm
