Annual meeting of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. Palm Springs, California (USA), 1995/11/10.
Psychiatrists have been extensively involved in ethics in the general hospital over the past two decades and have functioned in that area in a variety of roles.
The basis for psychiatry's strong interest in bioethics can be understood as related to three factors : familiarity with many of the clinical problems that lead to bioethics consultation, the frequent importance ofpsychiatric aspects of ethics, and the observation that psychiatrists already possess many of the clinical skills necessary for doing ethics work.
The particular value of training psychiatrists to serve as ethics consultants, in addition to the importance of their continuing role on hospital ethics committees, is discussed.
