Transitions-in-care planning is a daily activity filled with many ethical challenges. These challenges extend from the bedside, to boardrooms and to legislative levels. Transitions-in-care planning has a significant and lasting impact on people in need of care, their families, practitioners and healthcare and raises serious ethical issues.

The aim of this symposium is to make recommendations for structural improvement to the system that will benefit both patients and health care workers, relieving moral distress.
