The ethics of tomorrow’s health care

Stephen R Leeder
Med J Aust 2008; 188 (12): 697.

Global warming, unsustainable global demands for fossil fuel as China and India come on line, threats to biodiversity, obesity, 1.1 billion people in extreme poverty, wars and rumours of wars — it’s enough to make you sick. How, in a world like this, can we find the strength to be a doctor? Faced with this mess, you might choose to retreat into silence, keep your own council, look after your family and plan for retirement.
