Dedicated to improving education and debate in medical ethics

As a charitable organisation we promote and support the impartial study and understanding of medical ethics and its integration into clinical practice through education, research, and publication.

Indeed an excellent @IMEweb conference. Themes included resource allocation, equity, justice & fairness. Many fascinating contributions, including on vaccine challenge studies from @michaelethox & on dying well from @drkathrynmannix - thoughtful, reflective, sensitive & caring. https://twitter.com/MirandaGKayM/status/1350099927024754693

Fantastic conference @IMEweb #PandemicEthics. The importance of justice, community engagement, and consideration for vulnerable groups is stark: disability, mental health, minority, front-line workers, elderly, children, students...

Interesting contribution by @Marion_InfoLaw on #Covid19UK app at @IMEweb #PandemicEthics conf. She & Voo Teck Chuan mentioned concerns about scope/surveillance creep. Singapore app being used for criminal investigations. How might tracing be used in UK without ethical safeguards? https://twitter.com/Marion_InfoLaw/status/1350068294041149440

Thanks @IMEweb for invite to speak at today's 'Ethics Lessons from the Pandemic' webinar. Initial @omddac interviews found concern re quality/understanding of data used to justify decisions & its presentation as objective + how privacy concerns have impacted public health actions

Fresh requests are being made to the government for further legal protection for medics who are tasked with making decisions surrounding Covid-19. Esp in cases considering withdrawing/withholding treatment @TheBMA @MPS_Medical https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/inews.co.uk/news/health/medics-seek-covid-legal-protections-choose-who-lives-dies-832767/amp
