None of us wants to be in the position of having a relative on Intensive Care Unit (ITU), unsure if they will survive. But this is a sad reality faced by many families, including one from our own community only recently.
What makes it harder is having to face difficult decisions about whether to continue or withdraw treatment. Will the patient recover? Do we have to never give up on treatment? Can we switch off machines? As Muslims we are often torn between the advice of the doctors and our beliefs about life and death. This session will discuss these topics to help you if you are ever in that situation.
Also many people are unaware that there is a big change to the law so that from Spring this year, everyone will be automatically opted-in for donating your organs after death, unless you have opted out. This session will help you come to an informed decision on whether you want to donate your organs.
We have two qualified speakers to lead the discussion, one from the Islamic perspective and one from the Medical perspective.
Please join us to benefit from this session. Pizza will be provided iA.
