Room: Plenary

Covid-19 led to an unacceptable number of excess deaths in care homes, and far too many care workers dying. How will this situation make us rethink ethics in community care? This session will consider key values of social inclusion and community care, from the ethics of care through ethical ideas behind community care to practical questions of professional ethics.
