New resource for teachers of bioethics...

Nuffield Council on Bioethics (London, GB) has produced a set of teaching materials based on its 2010 report on the ethics of ‘personalised healthcare'. This set of resources includes three case studies:
1. Personal genetic profiling- people can pay for a DNA-analysis service to find out their personal susceptibility to certain diseases and conditions

2. Buying medicines online - a range of medicines are available to order on the internet, either with, or without a prescription

3. Health information websites - the internet offers new ways for people to find and share health information, advice and diagnosis

I highly recommend these materials for anyone interested in teaching or lecturing bioethics/healthcare ethics. See more at: http://www.nuffieldbioethics.org/education/education-teaching-resource-case-studies-personalised-healthcare

**The Nuffield Council on Bioethics (London, GB)is an independent body that examines and reports on ethical issues in biology and medicine. It was established by the Trustees of the Nuffield Foundation in 1991, and since 1994 it has been funded jointly by the Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.
