Introduction

The modern medical practice in general and neurosurgical practice in particular is dominated by technology and evidence based medicine emphasizing the importance of scientific data to guide our daily practice. But through the years, as medicine has crossed different cultures and borders, it has been and will be always be the ultimate value based activity, much of which is not necessarily based in evidence. Over the last 200 years, medical ethics has attracted the attention of philosophers, theologians, researchers, and scholars. It has become an independent and well-studied branch of ethics, called bioethics. Most hospitals all over the world have established their own ethics committees. All professional medical and surgical (including neurosurgical) societies have their own ethics committees as well. However new challenges constantly arise with the expansion of technology and changes in patients' level of knowledge and expectations which require vigilant attention to the ethical dimensions of what we do.
Good neurosurgical practice is not only based on evidence, skills, and modern equipment but also on good values and ethical approaches to problems (i.e. value-based medicine). Young neurosurgeons learn about ethical issues in neurosurgery largely through observation of the behavior of their staff who can act as role models, but there do exist more formal processes for approaching ethical dilemmas which we try to demonstrate and discuss in this workshop.

Workshop objectives

The workshop aims to achieve these objectives:

  • Introduction of the principles of medical ethics.
  • Introduction of the concept of Values based medicine and the relationship with the principles of Evidence Based Medicine
  • Patient's right, patient's family right and Doctor-patient- patient's family complex relationship
  • Decision making, (interfere or no interfere) consent
  • Solving ethical problems. Developing ethical quid line to help in solving the ethical problems which we may face in daily practice


Who should attend?

  • All neurosurgeons
  • Medical students
  • Nurses and paramedical staff
  • Hospital administration staff
  • Members of the ethics committees.
