Ethical and Policy Issues in Rehabilitation Medicine
Caplan, Arthur L.
Hastings Center Report. 1987 Aug; 17(4): S1-S19.
The field of medical rehabilitation is relatively new....Until recently, the ethical problems of this new field were neglected. There seemed to be more pressing concerns as rehabilitation medicine struggled to establish itself, sometimes in the face of considerable skepticism or hostility. There also seemed no pressing moral questions of the kind and intensity to be encountered, say, in high-technology acute care medicine or genetic engineering....Those in biomedical ethics could and did easily overlook the quiet, less obtrusive issues of rehabilitation....The Hastings Center set out in 1985 to rectify that situation....To explore the issues, the Center assembled a group of practitioners in the field, Hastings Center staff members, and individuals experienced in other areas of medical ethics....The report that follows was written by Arthur Caplan and Daniel Callahan, assisted by Dr. Janet Haas of the Moss Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia....
