Conversations in Ethics – Ethics and Care of the COVID-19 ICU Patient
During times of resource scarcity, entities for healthcare delivery should have a practiced framework in place to facilitate optimal delivery of medical care. That framework will allow ethical prioritization strategies to guide delivery of those scarce resources with the goal of maximizing the benefit for the greatest number of people, rather than allocating the resources on a first-come, first-served basis. There has been evolution in ethical thought from the preparations made in 2009 for H1N1 to the very real prospects of treatment shortages experienced with COVID-19. The balance between an ideal strategy and one that has practical application during an acute crisis leaves much room for debate.
Please join Dr. Martinez-Dubouchet in this important ethical discussion.
