Medical Records — Dossiers médicaux

Posted By Lauren Hanon & Prof. Shauna Van Praagh

In the McGill Journal of Law and Health’s pilot episode of Medical Records, Journal Executive Lauren Hanon interviews Professor Shauna Van Praagh on the legal and social issues that arose surrounding the events of the tragic death of Éloise Dupuis in October of last year. In this episode, Professor Van Praagh discusses informed consent, the right to refuse treatment, religious freedom, and how we, as a society, engage with these issues when there are conflicts between what is right in law, and what feels right morally.
