New Bioethics Commission Educational Materials and Improved Website Access

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) has released new educational materials and unveiled a reorganized webpage to facilitate easier access to all of its educational resources.

New materials include Users Guides that provide field-specific directories to Bioethics Commission educational materials, Public Health Case Studies that provide public health professionals and educators with opportunities to explore ethical issues that might arise in the course of their work, and Classroom Discussion Guides that provide prompts and questions that instructors at various educational levels can use to integrate ethics into their classes. These new resources add to a collection of educational materials that the Bioethics Commission has developed and made available to support the integration of bioethics into many disciplines in traditional and nontraditional educational and professional settings.

The Users Guides are designed to help professionals and educators quickly identify the most relevant materials for their needs. Guides are currently available for Researchers, Human Subjects Researchers, Public Health Professionals, Legal Educators, Public Policy Educators, and Science Educators. Future blogs will highlight the new Public Health Case Studies and Classroom Discussion Guides.

The updated education webpage facilitates access to Bioethics Commission educational materials by grouping them by categories. Categories include Users Guides for professionals in various fields, Primers for professionals and the public, Teaching Tools for educators and professional training instructors, and Videos for all audiences.

All Bioethics Commission educational materials are free and available at www.bioethics.gov/education. The Bioethics Commission encourages feedback on its materials via email to education@bioethics.gov.
