ISLS 308 - Decision-Making and Medical Ethics


This course brings together the resources of philosophy, religion, and social sciences to examine the ways in which life and death decisions are being made in current medical practice. Students examine the ethical principles utilized to examine health care issues. They also evaluate the procedures followed by major medical organizations in making medical decisions. Such contemporary issues as cloning (and other alternative methods of reproduction), euthanasia, organ donation, and the financing of health care are addressed. (S, SS)
