Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganiser of special symposia

Description

This roundtable explored why healthcare professionals should be able to withdraw from participation in certain work-related activities when professionals working in other areas (for example marriage registrars and social workers) cannot. Is there something distinctive about healthcare, or about the interventions where CO applies, that justifies the treatment of doctors and other healthcare professionals as a ‘special case’ in this regard?
