ETHICS AND MEDICINE: THE CHALLENGE OF TECHNOLOGICAL EVOLUTION

  • Alfredo Musajo – Somma

Abstract

Ethics and morality define professional practice just as strongly as expertise. Principle-based ethics dominate ethical thinking in medicine, and much has to be done to help medical practitioners to think in ethical terms. Ethics is still too rare in medical thinking, and the advancement of medical technology is a challenge to the medical practice of today and tomorrow.

Key words: Ethics, morality, medical technology, medical practice
