The Future of Bioethics

In this response, the arguments about how to foster a novel and transnational process of developing a practical and theoretical framework to support ethical practice in long-term care are clarified. This process should i) prevent abuse and other practices that are wrong, ii) establish the appropriate standards of care, and iii) enable difficult ethical decisions to be made. In recognition of the points made by the commentators, it is important to ensure that the identification of ethical issues and relevant ethical values is sensitive to the varied contexts within which long-term care is provided within different countries. It is also important to clarify the appropriate role for human rights protections, and the development of a model of ethics support in long-term care that is fit for purpose.

Keywords:   long-term care, social care, dementia, human rights, ethical principles, ethics support, transnational migration
