Bioethics involves critical reflection on moral/ethical problems faced in health care settings toward: deciding what we should do explaining why we should do it and describing how we should do it (Dr Barb Secker) Headline News:  Headline News Canadian Headlines:  Canadian Headlines “ Collective forethought & a broad consensus would go far in helping to tackle the unique moral & ethical dilemmas that will arise when a catastrophic event occurs.” Iserson & Pesik 2003:  “ Collective forethought & a broad consensus would go far in helping to tackle the unique moral & ethical dilemmas that will arise when a catastrophic event occurs.” Iserson & Pesik 2003 Rationale Ethical Guidelines:  Rationale Ethical Guidelines Government and health care leaders will need to make decisions based on values Values based leadership may be the glue that holds society together in an intense crisis History will judge today’s leaders on how well they prepared for and acted during the crisis and whether they treated people in an ethical manner Ethics & SARS – What did we learn?:  Ethics & SARS – What did we learn? Singer et al 2005 BMJ Ethics and SARS: lessons from Toronto Ten key ethical values Collateral Damage Bernstein & Hawryluck 2003 Critical Care :  Collateral Damage Bernstein & Hawryluck 2003 Critical Care Trust, truth-telling & relationships with colleagues Public infection & infection control ICU Professional integrity & relationships with patients/families Resource allocation Ethics & Disaster & Bioterrorism What can we learn? Triage Iserson & Pesik 2003:  Ethics & Disaster & Bioterrorism What can we learn? Triage Iserson & Pesik 2003 Civilian Triage Most ill or vulnerable prioritized Battlefield Triage Save those soldiers who can serve & protect Triage following Disasters (natural, man-made & industrial) Balance between civilian & battlefield triage Triage following biochemical terrorism Optimal use of resources to benefit most people- Senior clinicians decision-makers Lessons from Katrina:  Lessons from Katrina Darr, K. Katrina: Lessons from the Aftermath. Hospital Topics 2006, 84(2) p30-33 During a crisis situation like Katrina or impending avian flu pandemic “rules of thumb and situational ethics are not likely to produce societally desirable results”. Katrina & the varying perceptions for priority setting in evacuation:  Katrina & the varying perceptions for priority setting in evacuation Hospital → most critically ill patients first Firefighters → least ill patients first & most ill later Helicopter Pilots → pregnant women & babies How should influenza vaccine be distributed? From: Emanuel & Wertheimer Public Health. Who should get influenza vaccine when not all can? Science 2006 312 (5775) : 854-5:  How should influenza vaccine be distributed? From: Emanuel & Wertheimer Public Health. Who should get influenza vaccine when not all can? Science 2006 312 (5775) : 854-5 Examples of differing perspectives: National Vaccine Advisory Committee & Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (NVAC & ACIP) Life-cycle Principle LCP Investment refinement of LCP Why an Ethical Framework?:  Why an Ethical Framework? Decision-makers need a moral compass during public health crisis. Proportion of crisis unknown- framework needed that will guide. Difficult decisions will have to be made. How, why, when & by whom? Ethical Framework as a Guide in Decision-making:  Ethical Framework as a Guide in Decision-making Decision–making for and during a pandemic influenza outbreak ought to be: 1) guided by ethical decision-making processes &. 2) informed by ethical values. Guiding Values:  Guiding Values Individual Liberty Protection of the public from harm Proportionality Privacy Equity Duty to Provide Care Reciprocity Trust Solidarity Stewardship Ethical Processes: A4R (Norman Daniels):  Ethical Processes: A4R (Norman Daniels) Ethical Decision-Making Processes are: Open and Transparent Reasonable Inclusive Responsive Accountable Decision Review Process: Essential Features (Jennifer Gibson):  Decision Review Process: Essential Features (Jennifer Gibson) Anticipating the need for decision review process prior to crisis Assessing pre-existing mechanisms - ensure they are sufficient & adhere to ethical principles “In the midst of a crisis where guidance is incomplete, consequences uncertain, & information constantly changing, where hour by hour decisions involve life & death, fairness is more important rather than less.” Bell et. Al. 2004:  “In the midst of a crisis where guidance is incomplete, consequences uncertain, & information constantly changing, where hour by hour decisions involve life & death, fairness is more important rather than less.” Bell et. Al. 2004 Key Ethical Issues:  Key Ethical Issues Duty to Care Restrictive Measures Priority Setting Global Governance Ethical Issue 1: Duty to Care:  Ethical Issue 1: Duty to Care Recommendations Professional colleges and associations should provide, by way of their codes of ethics, clear guidance to members in advance of a major communicable disease outbreak, such as pandemic flu. Existing mechanisms should be identified, or means should be developed, to inform college members as to expectations and obligations regarding the duty to provide care during a communicable disease outbreak. Governments and the health care sector should ensure that: care providers’ safety is protected at all times, and providers are able to discharge duties and receive sufficient support throughout a period of extraordinary demands; and disability insurance and death benefits are available to staff and their families adversely affected while performing their duties. Governments and the health care sector should develop human resource strategies for communicable disease outbreaks that cover the diverse occupational roles, that are transparent in how individuals are assigned to roles in the management of an outbreak, and that are equitable with respect to the distribution of risk among individuals and occupational categories. Ethical Issue 2: Restrictive Measures:  Recommendations Governments and the health care sector should ensure that pandemic influenza response plans include a comprehensive and transparent protocol for the implementation of restrictive measures. The protocol should be founded upon the principles of proportionality and least restrictive means, should balance individual liberties with protection of public from harm, and should build in safeguards such as the right of appeal. Governments and the health care sector should ensure that the public is aware of: i. the rationale for restrictive measures; ii. the benefits of compliance; and iii. the consequences of non-compliance. Governments and the health care sector should include measures in their pandemic influenza preparedness plans to protect against stigmatization and to safeguard the privacy of individuals and/or communities affected by quarantine or other restrictive measures. Governments and the health care sector should institute measures and processes to guarantee provisions and support services to individuals and/or communities affected by restrictive measures, such as quarantine orders, implemented during a pandemic influenza emergency. Plans should state in advance what backup support will be available to help those who are quarantined (e.g., who will do their shopping, pay the bills, and provide financial support in lieu of lost income). Governments should have public discussions of appropriate levels of compensation in advance, including who is responsible for compensation. Ethical Issue 2: Restrictive Measures Ethical Issue 3: Priority Setting:  Recommendations Governments and the health care sector should publicize a clear rationale for giving priority access to health care services, including antivirals and vaccines, to particular groups, such as front line health workers and those in emergency services. The decision makers should initiate and facilitate constructive public discussion about these choices. Governments and the health care sector should engage stakeholders (including staff, the public, and other partners) in determining what criteria should be used to make resource allocation decisions (e.g., access to ventilators during the crisis, and access to health services for other illnesses), should ensure that clear rationales for allocation decisions are publicly accessible and should provide a justification for any deviation from the pre-determined criteria. Governments and the health care sector should ensure that there are formal mechanisms in place for stakeholders to bring forward new information, to appeal or raise concerns about particular allocation decisions, and to resolve disputes. Ethical Issue 3: Priority Setting Ethical Issue 4: Global Governance:  Ethical Issue 4: Global Governance Recommendations The World Health Organization should remain aware of the impact of travel recommendations on affected countries, and should make every effort to be as transparent and equitable as possible when issuing such recommendations. Federal countries should utilize whatever mechanisms are available within their system of government to ensure that relationships within the country are adequate to ensure compliance with the new International Health Regulations. The developed world should continue to invest in the surveillance capacity of developing countries, and should also make investments to further improve the overall public health infrastructure of developing countries. In addition…:  In addition… Mechanism to expedite research ethics review during a public health crisis Ethical treatment of animals – culling of birds Compensation for farmers Huge disparities between rich & poor people/nations hit by health crisis JCB Working Group Members::  JCB Working Group Members: KAREN FAITH BSW, Med, MSc, RSW Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Joint Centre for Bioethics University of Toronto JENNIFER L.
