Well, kind of. I am delighted to been offered the opportunity to speak on the Topic of “The Ethics of Organ Transplantation” to an audience of social work and case management professionals. In my pre-transplant days this was my profession. I’ve done many talks on this subject.
Now, post-transplant, this is my life. It was then and is now a very important topic. So, as we used to say on the playground, “a little help”!
Ethics is not simply an academic subject. We DO and experience the results of ethical decision making every day. Those of us who live in the world of organ donation and transplantation have a very personal perspective – and I’d like yours.
From an ethical, moral, and/or values perspective, if you had this opportunity, what would you want this group to hear. What ethical challenges have you experienced as a recipient, a donor and family, a professional, or an advocate involved in organ donation and transplantation?
I want to make this talk real. I want to make this talk about how ethical thinking impacts lives. Your ideas, comments, and thoughts are welcome. And when I finish the PowerPoint presentation at the end of this month, it will be posted here with credit given when credit is due!
Please use the comment section to send your thoughts along. Any and all, there are no right or wrong – speak up and out! Thanks!
