Mar 18, 2019

Two bioethicists.

Maria is an independent consultant in privacy & health law. Melissa is a neuroscientist. A career of high level decision making under pressure. Taking into account and prioritizing a collection of philosophical, social, legal and ethical concerns with the goal of maximum benefit to patient and caregiver. A very heroic duty.

This episode has two parts:

In part one we talk about making the tough decisions, keeping out bias, prioritization of values, living with the decision, the issue with policies, and more.

In part two we apply this information to hot topics in the media today, assisted dying, artificial intelligence, and gene editing.
