The first episode of the new series presents Dr Eliana Close in conversation with Associate Professor James Downar, from the University of Ottawa, Canada as they discuss non-beneficial treatment at the end of life and decision making in the COVID-19 pandemic.


This new online series Coffee with a Colleague will explore various mutual research interests or projects our researchers and colleagues have been working on.

While the COVID-19 public health crisis has meant that we have been unable to travel and catch up with colleagues at conferences, seminars and the like, or even in our workplaces, it has made us think about other ways to stay connected and progress our research projects. 


Dr Eliana Close, Lecturer and Postdoctoral Research Fellow,
QUT Faculty of Law

Dr James Downar, Associate Professor, University of Ottawa, Department of Medicine
