Sunshine Coast Refugee Action Network is proud to present the QLD premiere of Against Our Oath, a new documentary feature film by award-winning director Heather Kirkpatrick.
Against Our Oath is the inside story to the landmark Medivac Bill or the Urgent Medical Treatment Bill (UMT) which was passed in early 2019. The law provides critically sick refugees and people seeking asylum held in offshore detention a pathway to be transferred to Australia for urgent medical treatment.
Ethical conflicts erupt for doctors as the Australian government overrides their clinical decisions made for refugee patients. If doctors cannot follow the ethics their medical profession is bound to, what will happen to their patients? Herein lies the extraordinary conflict of medical ethics versus politics that is playing out for doctors in Australia today.
