APA Pacific Division Meeting, 2019
I was fortunate to complete the 2018-2019 APA circuit and attend the APA Pacific Division Meeting 2019 in Vancouver, British Colombia. I provided commentary on a very interesting paper by Jason Chen from St. Louis University (and soon to be the Ohio State University). Entitled, "Objective Quality of Life and Objective List Theory of Well-Being," Jason advances a medical conception of objective quality of life (QOL) that is derived from an objective list theory of wellbeing. Chen is responding to the legitimate need to develop a medical conception of QOL that can help us determine whether certain medical interventions ought to be performed on infants. It was a pleasure to read Jason's paper, meet him in person, and participate in a very important discourse in medical ethics.
