The Fiqh of Medicine (Islamic Medical Ethics)
27th – 28th March, 2021
9:00 am to 5:00 pm (GMT) , Virtual Event
For Health Care Professionals, Students, Muslim Scholars and all other interested parties and Health Bodies.
Medical science has witnessed some profound technological advances just in the past few decades. This has had quite an impact on the way we practice medicine, diagnose and treat. Modern medicine has challenged our understanding of humanity, and has brought some serious ethical, philosophical, theological and legal dilemmas to the table.
As the field of medicine is developing at an ever-increasing rate, and the world has become a global village, we find ourselves in an information age where the public turns to online sources and multi-media to be informed about what is the right or wrong thing to do.
Muslim leaders, the public, and stakeholder bodies need to be equipped, not only to effectively navigate the world of contemporary bioethics, but to help others make sense of these important ethical questions, through a good understanding of scripture, informed expert guidance and an ability to present this work in a way which is impactful and useful for consumers i.e. Muslim public, health professionals and organisations.
Featured Talks & Speakers
- To increase awareness of contemporary medical bioethics from the Islamic perspective, its challenges and proposed future direction.
