  • BioEdge: ‘The bioethics revolution is over’
    to bioethics The revolutionary moment came when Bioethics moved philosophy out of the ivory tower and into the clinic it connected humanities scholars with government panels and the media and it shifted the focus from doctors paternalistically making decisions to patient autonomy Bioethics revolutionized the way that patients interacted with the health care system and providers in fact they became providers how we handle human subjects research with how moral issues in health care settings are dealt But nowadays bioethics is in danger of becoming boring Even the work in bioethics is not earth shattering Year after year at the ASBH meetings I hear colleagues say There s nothing new here says Klugman In fact this question was raised as long ago as 1999 by Al Jonsen one of the pioneers of the discipline in an article headlined Why has bioethics become so boring Klugman concludes by asking what a revolution in contemporary bioethics would look like A new theory New territory New media outlets Or the end of bioethics MORE ON THESE TOPICS bioethics future of bioethics This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free

  • Euthanasia debate flares up in Australia
    who is compos mentis who understands what they re talking about he said Denton has become a new prominent advocate for euthanasia in Australia after he went on a lengthy study tour of Belgium and the Netherlands to learn about the implementation of euthanasia law there But critics too have made their contributions In the past week two prominent doctors published opinion pieces in national mastheads arguing against legalising euthanasia Palliative Care specialist Dr Ranjana Srivastava argued that legal euthanasia is a poor fix for a broader societal problem The terminally ill patients who suffer doubly are those who are ostracised by their relatives estranged from their children divorced by their spouse and left to shoulder their burden alone There is no easy solution to this intractable problem which is really a failure of modern society and its fraying relationships rather than a limitation of medicine Downplaying the value of palliative care will confuse patients and do them a disservice Similarly Dr Richard Chye director of palliative care at St Vincent s Hospital in Sydney argued that euthanasia would turn death into a technical problem to be fixed rather than an existential reality that patients must come to terms with and that good palliative care can make more bearable I agree there are problems with how Australians are dying but I think access to good quality palliative care can change that Australians want to die at home but need better support services to do so Carers need respite and your postcode often determines access to services These are the rights we are currently denied This is what we should be getting up in arms about MORE ON THESE TOPICS assisted dying Australia euthanasia palliative care This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You
