Improving Care: Conference 2018
We are pleased to announce our first major medical conference, which will take place in Montreal on March 24, 2018: Improving Care.
The conference is addressed especially to doctors and other health professionals facing the dramatic shift that has taken place in our medical environment since the euthanasia laws passed. Equip yourself to care with confidence for patients at risk of requesting euthanasia, including those in palliative care and in nursing homes, as well as chronically ill ambulatory patients.
The conference is fully bilingual, with separate French and English sessions in adjacent rooms. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues, and interested people outside the health professions are also welcome.

I am a physician and I want to give my support
We are an alliance of physicians against euthanasia and assisted suicide who see any law allowing doctors to intentionally end the life of their patients as contrary to the goals of medicine and the good of our patients, especially the most vulnerable and those who cannot speak for themselves.
The question of euthanasia matters to all physicians, regardless of their specialty or area of practice.
The Declaration is our defining document.
I am a concerned citizen
You may support the Physicians’ Alliance against Euthanasia’s initiative. Thank you in advance for your support and solidarity.

We are more than 660 physicians to have signed a declaration stating we will refuse to participate in those acts of killing, and several hundred more will join us once they realise the threat is real.–Dr. Marc Beauchamp MD FRCSC
I think it would be a disastrous mistake to legalize euthanasia in Quebec and Canada.–Dr. Balfour Mount
