Abstract

SACCHINI, Dario; MIDOLO, Emanuela; MINACORI, Roberta  and  SPAGNOLO, Antonio G.. ”FOCUS ON PRACTICE”: CLINICAL ETHICS CONSULTATION ON AN ORTHOTOPIC LIVER TRANSPLANT CASE. pers.bioét. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.70-76. ISSN 2027-5382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5294/PEBI.2016.20.1.7.

The contribution describes a case report addressed in 2011 by the clinical ethics consultation service team of the Institute of Bioethics and Medical Humanities at the "Agostino Gemelli" School of Medicine of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome (Italy). The clinical case regards ethical dilemmas about the patient's prospects for receiving an orthotopic liver transplant, because she was a non-resident and lacked a caregiver to assist her during the follow-up period, as well as a place to stay after liver transplant surgery.

Keywords : Clinical ethics consultation; ethical dilemmas; orthotopic liver transplant; ethical evaluation.
