Blog Post 1: Introduction to Bioethics

Description In case study research, the “case” being studied may be an individual, organization, event, or action that exists in a specific time and place. For example, a number of clinical case studies exist to describe the study of a particular animal in its environment. However, when “case” is used in an abstract sense, as in a claim, a proposition, or an argument, such a case can be the subject of many research methods, not just case study research. For example, the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park and Arizona Apache Forest each represent case studies. For this activity, you will select and evaluate a case study involving a bioethical issue. You should locate at least 2 academic sources to support your position for this module’s blog activity. In future modules, you will continue to blog about a bioethical dilemma. You are welcome to use the topic selected for this activity in the future blogs. However, you may select a different topic/dilemma. In Module 8, you will submit a final paper based on the information you gather throughout the blogging activities. Completing this activity will help you to master the following module level outcomes: 1, 2, & 3. Select an ethical issue from the following list: The following is a list of acceptable bioethical issues for this assignment. While extensive, this is not an exhaustive list. If you are interested in another topic, please contact your instructor for approval. There are many areas and professions where ethical issues are part of the everyday practice. This course is focused on “bioethics,” so we are not going to examine topics of medicine that include individual patient care concerns, which are covered in nursing or health care ethics courses. You will need to narrow these very broad topics and find an actual “case study” of one of these topics. Attached here are several resource links that can get you started. Please follow the links to the Bioethical Research Library at Georgetown University (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (not all topics listed here are appropriate for this course—be selective) and the Columbia University (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. journal of bioethics and current news stories or the Stanford University (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. website. Acceptable Bioethical Issues: Animal testing, experimentation, research De-extinction Invasive species eradication (intrinsic value of a particular species) Habitat restoration (environmental ethics) Pharmaceutical research and testing, vulnerable populations, underdeveloped countries Genetic manipulation (biotechnology, enhancing altering genomes) Genetically modified foods or animals, insects Nanotechnology (pushing the boundaries of what is “alive”) Synthetic biology (purposefully creating new species) Patents on genes, cell lines, and gene products from research with human cells Easy access for anyone to genetic technologies Ownership of scientific knowledge Fair ethical allocation/use of natural resources Animal rights, non-human rights (primates, killer whales, and Cetacea) Compose a blog post (approximately 500 words) that addresses the following questions. Keep in mind, this is scientific writing, and you need to support any positions you take with factual data from trustworthy sources. You analyze each of these questions in further detail in future module blog assignments. What is the bioethical issue/dilemma, and why is it important to you? Who are the stakeholders involved in the decision-making process, and what are their positions on the dilemma? Do you see that there is some value to each position? Please describe these positions. In your opinion, how do you think this dilemma should be resolved? After posting to your blog, respond to at least two blog posts of your peers. Provide substantial feedback with regard to their opinions of the stakeholders’ positions and how they would handle the bioethical dilemma. Chose Animal testing, experimentation, research
