Informed Consent In Predictive Genetic Testing

This important book proposes revising the current informed consent protocol for predictive genetic testing to reflect the trend toward patient-centered medicine. Emphasizing the predictive aspect of testing, the author analyzes the state of informed consent procedure in terms of three components: comprehension of risk assessment, disclosure to select appropriate treatment, and voluntariness. The book's revised model revisits these cornerstones, restructuring the consent process to allow for expanded comprehension time, enhanced patient safety, greater patient involvement and autonomy, and reduced chance of coercion by family or others. A comparison of the current and revised versions and case studies showing the new model in real-world applications add extra usefulness to this resource. Included in the coverage: The science behind PGT. Understanding genetic risks and probability. The history of informed consent. Revised model of informed consent: comprehension, disclosure, voluntariness, patient safety. Applications of the model in DTC and pleiotropic genetic testing. Implementation of the revised model, and assessing its effectiveness. A milestone in the bioethics literature, Informed Consent in Predictive Genetic Testing will be of considerable interest to genetic counselors, medical and bioethicists, and public health professionals.

Täglich sterben 27000 Kinder unter fünf Jahren, weil sie in Armut leben. Dieses Buch zeigt auf, wie Sie mindestens einem dieser Kinder das Leben retten könnten - und es erklärt Ihnen, warum Sie es nicht tun. Peter Singer rechnet vor, wie wir die Armut abschaffen könnten, indem jeder Einzelne, der nicht in Armut lebt, einen kaum spürbaren Teil seines Besitzes abgibt. Und er geht nüchtern der Frage nach, warum es uns so unendlich schwerfällt, diesen kleinen, aber alles verändernden Schritt zu machen. Ein Experiment: Einer Gruppe (A) wird in Aussicht gestellt, dass sie mit einer Spende einem Kind das Leben könnte. Einer zweiten Gruppe (B) wird ebenfalls in Aussicht gestellt, mit einer Spende Leben retten zu können - und zwar nicht nur von einem, sondern von acht Kindern. Ergebnis: Gruppe B spendet deutlich weniger als Gruppe A. Anhand dieses und vieler weiterer Experimente zeigt Peter Singer auf, welche psychologischen Faktoren uns davon abhalten, trotz rationaler Einsicht tatkräftig zur Lösung eines der größten Probleme der Menschheit beizutragen. Am Ende steht dabei weder eine Anklage noch eine moralische Entlastung - sondern ein konkreter Sieben-Punkte-Plan, mit dem die Armut auf der Welt abgeschafft werden kann.
