This blog is intended as a forum for discussing organ policy and issues of medical ethics more generally. It belongs to Dr Ben Saunders, Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Stirling. I've been blogging in a personal capacity since 2005 - over seven years now I realise - and often comment on matters of interest in the news. This new blog marks an attempt to keep comments on one particular area of interest together.
It's intended that this blog will tie in with a workshops grant I was recently awarded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh to investigate Organ Donation and Transplantation Policy. This grant begins in March 2013. I hope, then, to report on the discussions in those workshops and, if possible, involve some of my collaborators. In the meantime, this will be a repository for thoughts and news items on the issue. Comments very welcome!
