Launched a book about the rights of incurable children. Ethics, Conflict and Medical Treatment for Children: From disagreement to dissensus
What should happen when doctors and parents disagree about what would be best for incurable children?
On April 23 a case added a new impulse to Charlie Gard parents, Bambino Gesu and bioethicist fight to find an adequate medical protocol legislative and solution that would protect parents from “painful and prolonged conflicts with medical professionals.”, when the United Kingdom High Court ruled that it is in Alfie Evans’s best interests he should die in Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool (see HERE our bioethical assessment).
On May an editorial of British Medical Journal signed by professor Savulescu titled, Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard—should the law change? affirmed, There is a pressing need now for professionals to come together with families to explore and implement new constructive solutions to avoid, mitigate, and resolve disagreements about treatment. That would be in the best interests of all children.
On 4th September Professors Savulescu and Wilkinson launched a book we present to our readers.
