  • Must We Ration Health Care?

    Arthur Caplan is playing a key role in the nation's effort to implement health reform. He is consulted by officials in the White House, Federal agencies, patient advocacy groups, health care provider organizations, insurance companies and federal legislators for his views on the ethics of enacting health reform. He is particularly interested in how allocation and rationing decisions will be made as health reform evolves, especially when it concerns end-of-life care issues. He is also knowledgeable about the role that consent, choice and privacy will play as the health system moves toward mandates and a greater reliance on electronic medical records. Caplan also addresses the core question of health reform—what is next as reform has become a reality, what should be covered, what is the patient's role in managing prevention and their own health as well as if the nation's health care system handle increased demand for services.

  • Bioethics: Just Because We can, Should We?

    Should you eat genetically engineered foods? Should athletes be allowed to use prosthetic legs, or inhale oxygen when competing at high altitudes? Should the highest bidder win a donated organ? And just because we can pick the sex of our babies, should we?

Whether you work on Wall Street or live on Main Street, work in the healthcare, insurance, finance or pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology affects your personal and professional life, every day. Art Caplan provides audiences with a glimpse of the most astounding scientific advancements that will become a reality in short order. These advancements prompt the question: just because it's possible, should we? He then shares an ethical framework to think through some of the most difficult issues facing Americans today, and the impact these issues have on our lives. In a customized presentation for your industry, Caplan can gear his talk to a variety of subfields including stem cell research, genetically engineered foods, right to die, and a host of other urgent, bio-ethical issues in the news.
