MEDICINE AND RELIGION CONFERENCE

"My Pain is Always With Me"
Medicine and Faithful Responses to Suffering

March 29-31, 2019

The annual conference on Medicine and Religion is a leading forum for discourse and scholarship at the intersection of medicine and religion. It exists to enable health professionals and scholars to gain a deeper and more practical understanding of how religion relates to the practice of medicine, with particular attention to the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This forum was intended to build bridges between theory and practice, science and theology, the academy and lay communities, the various health professions, and the Abrahamic religious traditions.

PROVONSHA LECTURE 

“Devout requests for maximal treatment: Sanctity of (earthly) life, or crisis of faith?”

March 1, 2019

Robert Macauley, MD, MBA
Cambia Health Foundation Endowed Chair in Pediatric Palliative Care at OHSU

Some studies have suggested that patients who are persons of devout faith, who presumably believe that this earthly existence is one tiny slice of what will be eternal life, are more apt to choose aggressive treatment at the end of life. Does that suggest a lack of faith? Or a hearty affirmation of the life we’re entrusted with on earth? The lecture addressed these and related questions from the standpoint of Christian theology and ethics.
