RSVP- March 19th Who Decides? Baruch Ethics Week 
Tuesday March 19th 12:30-1:30 
Room 14-270 Vertical Campus
Speaker Laura Sullivan
Moderated by Wenqing Zhao 


Who decides? Balancing respect and care for the individual in Western and East Asian medical decision-making:  In Western countries like the US, doctors usually ask patients directly what they want to do. This shows respect for their personal choices. But in East Asian countries, doctors often talk to patients’ families first, helping them understand the situation and deciding together what is best for the patient. This shows care for the patient, but does it come at the cost of personal choice?  What justifies these diverging practices? In this presentation, I will show how both ways of giving consent can be based on the same value: autonomy.
