From chance to choice : genetics and justice by Allen E Buchanan( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book probes the implications of advances in genetics. The authors ask how they should affect our understanding of distributive justice, equality in opportunity, the rights and obligations as parents, the meaning of disability, and the role of the concept of human nature in ethical theory and practice." "The book offers a historical context to contemporary debate over the use of these technologies by providing an ethical autopsy of mankind's first attempts to use the scientific knowledge of heredity to improve human lives: the eugenics movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Appendices explain the nature of genetic causation and gene-environment interaction, and expose widespread misconceptions of genetic determinism, as well as outline the nature of the ethical analysis used in the book." "The questions raised in this book will be of interest to any reflective reader concerned about science and society and the rapid development of biotechnology, as well as to professionals in such areas as philosophy, bioethics, medical ethics, health management, law, and political science."--Jacket

The value of making treatment decisions for oneself by Dan W Brock( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(CIT): The Value of Making Treatment Decisions for Oneself Respect for patient autonomy implies that patients should make their own treatment decisions. Yet, in some cases, the steps required to allow patients to make their own decisions pose risks to them. These cases force us to consider how important it is for patients to make their own decisions, and the extent to which the value of making one"s own decisions can be balanced against other values. The program, which involves presentation and discussion of an actual case that occurred at the NIH, should be of interest to all individuals involved in clinical care, as well as those interested in important issues in bioethics. Presenter: John Park, MD, NINDS Discussant: Dan Brock, PhD, Director, Division of Medical Ethics, Harvard Medical School For more information go to <a href='http://www.cc.nih.gov/about/news/grcurrent.html'>http://www.cc.nih.gov/about/news/grcurrent.html
