The practice of modern medicine has become increasingly defensive: we appear to place more value on minimising the possibility that we fail to notice or cure illness, rather than the risk that medical investigations and treatments inflict unintentional harm. This is particularly
pertinent in end of life care: there has been longstanding debate and controversy about when and whether to stop active medical treatment in those who are dying.
Speaker: Dr Lotte Elton, Winner of the Sydney Selwyn Prize 2021
