Description: The Value of Making Treatment Decisions for Oneself

Respect for patient autonomy implies that patients should make their own treatment decisions. Yet, in some cases, the steps required to allow patients to make their own decisions pose risks to them. These cases force us to consider how important it is for patients to make their own decisions, and the extent to which the value of making one’s own decisions can be balanced against other values.

The program, which involves presentation and discussion of an actual case that occurred at the NIH, should be of interest to all individuals involved in clinical care, as well as those interested in important issues in bioethics.

Presenter: John Park, MD, NINDS

Discussant: Dan Brock, PhD, Director, Division of Medical Ethics, Harvard Medical School
