AGAINST OUR OATH: The ethical conflicts for doctors working with refugees and asylum seekers
THURSDAY 27 FEBRUARY 6:00-8:00pm
Studio 4, Italian Forum Cultural Centre
Piazza Level – 23 Norton Street Leichhardt
FILEF and COASIT invite you to a screening of a documentary feature film on doctors working with asylum seekers who arrived in Australia by boat and are detained on the remote Pacific islands of Manus and Nauru. Ethical conflicts erupt as the Australian government overrides the clinical decisions made for refugee patients. If doctors cannot follow their medical ethics what will happen to their patients?
The Border Force Act of July 2015 threatens with two year jail sentences doctors who make “unauthorised disclosure” about conditions in the camps. Many doctors are intimidated. Will the doctors risk jail and speak out?
Q&A will follow. –
