Ethics Seminar Series: The 'Myriad' Dilemma: Should We Be Able To Patent Our Genes?
The session will consider how healthcare professionals sometimes encounter ethical challenges in their practice. These individuals will gain insight into the current debate involving the nexus between the drive to provide innovative therapies and better patient outcomes with the incentives for health care entrepreneurship and remuneration. At the core of this intellectual property policy debate is the impact and reliance we have on technology/diagnostics as well as the fundamental question of "do we own our bodies?" This presentation will explore some of these issues and open a discussion to address them for social workers, physicians, nurses and ethicists.
