Quick Overview
With this book, the committee expands the scope of its service to these constituencies, especially FIGO members. The book has four sections. The first, clinical practice includes three chapters. One addresses the ethical concept of the fetus as a patient and its myriad clinical dimensions and implications. The two especially challenging clinical, ethical topics are addressed in depth, the care of women with HIV infection and consent in obstetric emergencies. The second section addresses an emerging and controversial topic in research ethics, uterine transplantation. The third section addresses the important—and sometimes neglected—intersection between health policy and clinical practice in the domains of sexual and reproductive health services, conscientious objection, conflict of interest, and criminalization of medical errors. The fourth section addresses bioethics education in obstetrics and gynecology.
