IHP-420-X3057 Ethical & Legal Considerations 24EW3 6-1 Discussion: Bioethics Hot Topics

In your initial post, respond to one of the following prompts:

1. Direct consumer genetic testing has become popular. A consumer sends a DNA sample, such as saliva, to one of dozens of companies that provide information about common health traits or ancestry. What can these companies do with your data? Should companies be able to sell your data? Should a parent post their child’s DNA profile online? Discuss your thoughts using factual evidence and/or research to defend your position.

2. Many major countries, including the United States, recruit healthcare professionals from around the world to supply nurses and doctors during times of shortages. Discuss the ethics of recruiting highly qualified staff, on a permanent basis, from foreign countries. While the United States benefits greatly, how does this affect the country the individual was recruited from? Ultimately, how is the world affected when professionals are recruited away from their home country? Discuss your thoughts using factual evidence and/or research to defend your position.

3. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many areas of the world did not have access to newly developed vaccines. What factors should be considered on a global scale to improve equitable distribution of vaccinations and other medical technology in the case of a world-wide health crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic? Discuss your thoughts using factual evidence and/or research to defend your position.
