ISHU 4651 - Bioethics in Healthcare

Introduces the applied ethical subspecialty of bioethics, particularly as related to healthcare and human services. Each day brings advancements in healthcare: multi-organ transplants, “Octo Moms” and expanded viability on both ends of the life continuum. Society applauds these miraculous manipulations of the human essence, yet opposes healthcare agents ‘playing God’. Examines the complexity of society’s response to bioethical dilemmas.
