One thought to “12/10/14 – Going Viral: Ebola and the Media”

  1. It would be interesting if this conference considers 1) the bioethical aspects of placebo usage in Ebola patients and 2) mandatory care provision from medical staff to Ebola patients – should it be voluntary or compulsory care?

    On a further note, in addition to placebos, the study of advanced fluid resuscitation, immuno-modulators and vaccines in demographics with populations who can’t afford such treatments even if they were found to work remains ethically challenging.

    Keen to find out more.
