Teaching Medical Ethics
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1984 Aug 11; 289(6441): 364-365.
At the University of Southampton Medical School, third-year students participated in two seminars to help them recognize and understand moral decisions in medical practice. In the first seminar, general ethical principles and their applications and exceptions were identified. In the second, the principles were applied to specific clinical cases. The author describes how the students' initial reluctance to identify and discuss the ethical components of medical care was overcome by interactive learning and problem analysis. Jewell and his colleagues plan to continue the seminar approach to teaching medical ethics until the goal of integrating moral decision making into the clinical curriculum can be achieved.
