HEALING THE HEART OF MEDICINE: TRUSTING OUR MORAL COMPASS
The pandemic has been a challenge for each one of us in many ways, not the least of which revolves around the question: what behaviour is expected of individuals, as part of a collective, when facing a crisis?
Reflecting upon our actions with respect to their impact on others is the essence of ethics, and is an absolute necessity if we hope to live in a civilized society. How well has this been done during the pandemic? Have we focused sufficiently on the ethics of our various policies, recommendations or mandates? What can we learn about ourselves and our values going forward?
Our series ‘Healing the Heart of Medicine: Trusting Our Moral Compass’ attempts to explore those questions, because the process of doing so, and the insights gained, have far-reaching implications for each of us individually, and for our society as a whole, both now and in the years ahead. Thank you for joining us!
