Care Transitions in Aging Societies: Singapore Casebook, 2nd Edition
Funder: Lien Foundation
The Hastings Center, The Ethox Centre at Oxford University, and the Centre for Biomedical Ethics at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore are developing an innovative web-based casebook that focuses on ethical challenges of caring for people in an aging society. It is geared to those who provide community-based care to frail or chronically ill people living at home, in a family member’s home, or in a nursing home. The casebook will include fictional cases along with ethics commentaries, clinical perspectives, reflection and discussion questions, and other resources. Scheduled for publication in 2017, it is the second edition of a casebook that this group produced in 2014, Making Difficult Decisions with Patients and Families: A Singapore Casebook.
