A dialogue with Prof. Christiane Woopen, the executive director of Center for Ethics, Rights, Economics, and Social Sciences of Health, at University of Cologne (Ceres) at the University of Cologne, Germany.
In the medical/health sector, ethics is and has been a core and key component of daily decisions, research and other activities. Where digital technology has outstripped societal and legal frameworks, what can we learn from the ways ethics and accountability are continuously deployed in this sector? For instance regarding personal, bodily, emotional and data integrity. How to cater for multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary collaboration? And why is common ground such as a clear taxonomy so important? This Dialogue dives into these and related important matters.
