We had the neatest discussion Monday here at the Center and I decided I would use it for my next Ethics Brown Bag meetings for September.
With all the discussion of healthcare reform swirling around, I am going to ask the participants:
Fifteen to twenty years from now, what will be the defining characteristics of the U.S.?
And then, How will these characteristics shape and influence healthcare delivery?
And finally, What will be the ethical issues involved and how best can we address such issues?
Increased individualism? Going green? Rising or ebbing expectations? If you take any one and place it like a template over health and healthcare, you’ll see a trend. And each trend has ethical implications we might need to address.
I hope my hearty friends who attend these sessions will not disappoint me. Anyone interested?????
