MTS Partners with PhD Program

Mid-America Transplant Services' Center for Life has established a partnership with the PhD Program in Health Care Ethics to support a website and blog on ethical issues in organ transplantation. A $15,000 grant was awarded to James DuBois, PhD, DSc for the development of the project.

Each month, the joint team will post a new ethics case for online discussion. With oversight from faculty members James DuBois, PhD, DSc and Erica Salter, PhD, students will take turns developing cases and moderating discussion. DuBois says, "To our knowledge, this will be the first website dedicated entirely to ethical issues in organ transplantation. We hope it will be a valuable resource for those who dedicate their lives to this important dimension of our health care system."

"Organ and tissue donation and transplantation surface extraordinarily challenging medical, psychosocial, spiritual and ethical issues for health care professionals," noted Marc Smith, PhD, director of the MTS Center for Life. "This innovative blog, to be launched on the MTS website in January 2012, will allow our colleagues to explore the complex interaction among these variables, learn from one another and sharpen their own ethical decision making skills."
