Clinical Medical Ethics: How Did We Start? Where Are We Heading?


Bernard Lo


The author presents his view of the start of clinical medical ethics and ideas on where the broader field of bioethics is heading. In addition to clinical medical ethics, people with training in clinical ethics can enlarge the scope of their work in order to have additional real-world impact. Important opportunities abound in empirical research on medical ethics, the ethics of healthcare institutions, ethical issues regarding biomedical research, and public policy. Three topics for bioethics scholars to address are artificial intelligence in clinical care, health disparities, and communicating persuasively to broader audiences beyond academia.
