As part of Dying With Dignity Canada’s Learning Centre series, “Patient Rights 101” DWDC will speak with Ruby Shanker about your rights as a patient and how to stay informed regardless of your medical situation. 


Ruby Shanker, Bioethicist for the University Health Network Toronto Rehab, Women’s College Hospital, and the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care. She is a former physician with clinical experience in general and community medicine practice. Within healthcare ethics, her areas of practice and experience span widely from acute and critical care to post-acute and rehabilitation care ethics, especially in response to ethical issues arising in care at the beginning and end of life.

However, only those who attend the webinar live on June 1 will have the opportunity to ask questions of our speaker. If you have questions, you are also welcome to send them in ahead of time via the webinar registration.
