A discussion on the topic ‘New Frontiers in Health Care Ethics’ from a Public Defender’s perspective will always be considered in a Human Rights context.
The ‘New Frontier in Health Care Ethics’ should be more Human Rights centered with Constitutional Rights of patients being one of the head cornerstones moulding and shaping ethical decisions and standards in the provision of health care.
However, using only Human Rights Law to consider this topic is analogous to prescribing one medicine for all ailments.
Human Rights however has its place in any discussion on ethics as rights are a part of ethics but Human Rights are not all there is to ethics.
