Neurologists are frequently faced with ethical conundrums. In this course, we will debate two controversial topics: 1) initiation of Aducanumab in a patient with Alzheimer Disease, and 2) accommodation of a family’s request to delay determination of death by neurologic criteria and/or continue organ support after declaration of death by neurologic criteria.
