Practice and Evaluation of Ethical Governance in Assisted Reproductive Technologies
Journal International de Bioéthique = International Journal of Bioethics 2008 December; 19(4): 83-93
The rapid development of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) raises complex ethical and social problems. This article explores how to perform ethical governance in ART and evaluates the social consequences. In order to urge doctors and patients to abide by medical ethics and moral norms and to ensure the successful development of ART, we argue that ethics committees must be robust and that their guidelines must be followed. Specifically, it is necessary to improve awareness of the fundamentals of ART and related ethical principles among doctors and patients. This includes the need to intensify mechanisms to fully monitor the implementation and enforcement of medical ethical principles and doctrines, such as informed consent.
