It is a great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 4th International Conference on End-of-Life Law, Ethics, Policy, and Practice (ICEL4), which takes place March 6 to 9, 2024 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  

We invite you to join us for a thought-provoking program on a broad range of end-of-life issues. This is a multidisciplinary, multisectoral, and multinational conference, with presenting disciplines including, but not limited to, law, medicine, nursing, philosophy and bioethics, and sectoral representation spanning practitioners, academics, NGOs, and regulators and policymakers. We will engage with empirical evidence about, and legal and ethical analysis of, many of the most pressing and vexing issues of our time. Leading experts from around the world will present their findings. Participants will engage with others who are wrestling with the challenges of end-of-life care.  

Please join us for a 3-day deep dive into stopping/ not starting potentially life-sustaining treatment, palliative sedation, medical assistance in dying, and the next generation end of life issues.
