In recent years, concerns over how to use the results of scientific advances, changing expectations of how medical decisions are made, and questions about the implications of demographic changes have raised ethical challenges regarding allocation of resources, justice, and patient autonomy. Bioethics – no longer the singular purview of moral philosophy – is now accepted as a legitimate field in the academic health sciences and is helping to guide policy and clinical decision-making. To achieve its full potential, it must seamlessly integrate the methods of the humanities, social sciences and medical sciences.
