HPE390K Decision-Making and Medical Decisions

Technological advances in the life sciences and health care have increased the ability to conceive, sustain, and alter human lives.  The human response to health care technology is explored from individual, family, and societal perspectives.  Ethical theories and principles are applied as a guide to decision-making about the use of health care technology.  Problems of the current health care system are discussed and health policy options for controlling or monitoring technologies are considered.  Health care technologies discussed in the course include genetic testing and counseling, intensive treatment of newborns, contraceptive technologies, reproductive technologies and organ transplantation. Additional topics of concern are quality of life issues in care of the elderly and termination of life.
