- Host campus
- Bioethics Centre
- Professor John McMillan
We have an opportunity available to make an original contribution to an important and under-researched area of bioethics.
The public is, in general, enthusiastic about screening for disease:
- How should the wishes of those who want screening be weighed when we have reason to think we will probably harm them?
- Should individual risks and benefits should be factored into population level judgments about harm and benefit? If so, how?
- What does screening aim at? Is 'proportion of population screened' a suitable aim? Is “Equity” an ethically defensible aim for a screening programme?
