About the book
The issues in healthcare today are exploding. Every week we hear about both advances and setbacks in various technologies--CRISPR-Cas- 9, genetic testing, drug-resistant diseases, organ transplantation, brain death, etc. Bioethicists need to work collaboratively with one another globally not only to address these critical issues but also to offer some guidance on how to move forward in the best interests of humanity. Scientists, politicians, public policy advocates, pharmaceutical representatives, business executives are all searching for answers that will address the medical, ethical, and legal issues facing humanity. The role of the Bioethicist is to identify challenges, analyze issues, collaborate with colleagues to coordinate possible positions, and then help to implement changes.
This book will challenge those in the medical, legal, and ethical fields to perform these tasks for the common good of humanity. This is an ambitious agenda but one that must be undertaken so that the public is made aware of these issues and what can be done to reach viable conclusions.
