Public Involvement in Medical Ethics

Joseph D. Mcinerney, Morris B. Abram, Susan M. Wolf

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


To the Editor: In their discussion of public involvement in medical ethics, Abram and Wolf (March 8 issue)1 assert the “need both to articulate the moral ground we share and to try to enlarge it” such that policy recommendations are reflective of “latent societal accord.” They also point out that the President's Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research has suggested revisions in school curricula that will allow students to examine ethical issues, thereby improving the ability of future voters to participate in that articulation. I wish to remind health-care professionals, professionals in.
