Ethical Function in Hospital Ethics Committees
IOS Press, 2002 - Medical - 217 pages
This monograph was written to present the results of the concerted action called Ethical Function in Hospital Ethics Committees funded by the European Union in the context of the BIOMED II programme. Ethics committees as a principle - national, clinical or for research - do appear as quite innovative in the hospital environment. They offer an opportunity, deep in the clinical practice, to think about wide and subtle issues of medicine, throughout a variety of discourses coming from philosophy, social sciences, law, and laymen as well.
