20: Ethics of Care

Helen is joined by Dr Teodora Manea Hauskeller, Lecturer in Clinical Ethics at the School of Medicine, University of Liverpool. They talk about the ethics of care during the pandemic, and how themes in the student experience episodes (5, 8, 11, 15 & 16) illustrate these concepts: considering the effects of PPE, visiting restrictions, and technology through a lens of medical ethics and philosophy.
