Ethical dilemmas arise with alarming regularity in healthcare, and increasingly we turn to the discipline of bioethics. Using various examples including the use of assistive technologies, this talk will look at who does bioethics, why we need it, and how we can all make it work for us.

The Council is currently working on reports on novel neurotechnologies, donor conception, and emerging biotechnologies.
