Minor in Bioethics - Ethics & Health Care: Patient Care PHIL 2805   Ethics & Health Care: Patient Care
Should physicians be allowed to lie to patients? When, if ever, should health professionals be permitted to override decisions made by patients? Should medical decisions made by children be respected? Should health professionals tell patients about "near misses"? Should people have living wills? Should physicians be permitted to assist patients in committing suicide? In this class we will explore questions related to the health professional-patient relationship through a combination of lecture and discussions.
