Podcast “World, we’ve got this: Ethics and Pandemics”. A conversation with Julia Stepowska and Caitlin Gardiner

How does a doctor know which patient to save during a pandemic, when resources can be limited? And how ethical is it to put everyone under lockdown? Does trust in our government predict whether we will socially distance ourselves?

In this in conversation episode of WORLD: we got this, we speak with Dr Silvia Camporesi, Senior Lecturer in Bioethics and Society, and Caitlin Gardiner, an A&E doctor in London and a King’s master’s student in Bioethics & Society. We explore our personal experiences living and working in the UK, Italy and South Africa during this strange time and how bioethics comes into practice.

Many thanks Julia Stepowska for inviting us to have a chat with you about ethics and pandemics!
