WHAT IS BIO ETHICS
Bioethics Mediation is about people. It is about the lives and deaths of individual patients and their family, friends, significant others, and care givers. Bioethics was created out of a need to assist patients and their families during stressful health care issues. Mediators are called in to work with the people in conflict around care decisions, for doctors who are having trouble explaining procedures or diagnosis to a patient or their caregiver. This relatively new concept of patient care includes a set of ethics derived from shared moral values and the legal rules that govern the practice of modern medicine, as well as, the virtues of empathy, compassion and integrity.
If you're like most people, you probably don't like to think about death. It's understandable - facing our own mortality can be a frightening prospect. However, making some simple preparations now can take away a lot of the stress and anxiety that comes with thinking about what happens after we die.
One of the best things you can do is to put together an advance directive. This document outlines your wishes for medical care and treatment in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself. It's an important step to take, especially if you have strong feelings about end-of-life care.
