Summer Course: Ethics in Dementia Care (5-7 July 2017)
The number of persons with dementia will rise considerably in the years to come. The increasing prevalence of dementia and the treatment and care for people with dementia present a myriad of important ethical questions and responsibilities. What do we think of the quality of life of people with dementia and of their subsequent end of life? What are the opinions about vulnerability and dignity in case of dementia? What do we consider to be ‘good care’ and ‘a good death’ for persons with dementia?
XIIth SCAR Biology Symposium
The main theme for the XIIth SCAR Biology Symposium is "Scale matters". From the small molecular scale, through population and large ecosystem scale, biological processes and diversity span all these levels. Understanding these processes as well past and present patterns of biodiversity are essential for understanding possible threats to Antarctic biology and their impact. With this Symposium we want to focus on understanding biological distribution and trends as well as adaptation and processes both in the marine and terrestrial realm including the human biology.
