Download Gerechtigkeit in der Transplantationsmedizin - Sind die by Christoph Wolf PDF

By Christoph Wolf

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Ethik, word: 1,0, Evangelische Hochschule Berlin (Studiengang Pflege / Pflegemanagement), Veranstaltung: Medizin- und Pflegeethik II, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Etwas gerecht zu verteilen ist meist mit Überlegungen, oft auch mit Problemen verbunden. Gerade wenn es um die Zuteilung von Organen geht, die doch 1. ökonomisch knapp, 2. unteilbar und three. zum Teil überlebenswichtig sind, kommt es zu Interessenkonflikten auf der Seite der nachfragenden Patienten. Daher müssen Entscheidungen getroffen werden, diese Interessen in eine (gerechte) Ordnung zu bringen. Um diese Entscheidungen nachzuvollziehen, sollen in dieser Arbeit zu Beginn medizinische Grundlagen der Organallokation dargelegt werden. Daraufhin wird der gesetzliche Rahmen aufgezeigt. Ein Blick in die Praxis der Organtransplantation schließt sich an, bevor die Verteilungsgerechtigkeit anhand von vier verschiedenen Prinzipien erfasst wird. Danach erfolgt eine Diskussion der gesetzlichen Grundlagen und einzelner Verteilungskriterien, wobei sich auf die wichtigsten in Deutschland angewandten Verteilungskriterien beschränkt wird. Ein abschließendes Resümee soll dann die Frage beantworten, ob die angewendeten Kriterien bei der Organallokation gerecht sind.
