Know More About Bioethics


Hello CIMSA!

CIMSA UNRI successfully held Know More About Bioethics on Saturday, 30th October 2021 from 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm. This activity was held online via Zoom Meeting due to the COVID – 19 situation that occurred around the world and there is still a prohibition to organize large groups of people to break the chain of spreading the virus.

Bioethics is the study of ethical issues that result from technologic and scientific advances, especially as they are used in biology and medicine. It is a subdiscipline within the larger discipline of ethics, which is the philosophic study of mortality, or what is right and what is wrong.

Today more than ever, doctors and their patients need to keep pace with technologic changes occurring in health care, with one are blurring into another. We need to discusses some of the choices with which doctors and their clients must grapple. It should be read, studied, and discussed within the framework of the information concerning ethical decision-making that was provided earlier. We need to know a basis with which we can look at judicial rulings, legal mandates, and social standarts, and how they can be used to assist in resolving concerns that face us in health care delivery. We have had some experience ini looking at what is right or wrong regarding our personal professional practice.

Medical students are the relay of doctors in the future, good knowledge of medical bioethics is expected to equip medical students to become trustworthy and professional doctors who always respect the ethics of patients.
