Going Global and Facing the Future
Clinical Neuroethics, is an annual issue of CQ, The Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics, aimed at addressing key themes and questions that are directly relevant to the translation of the brain sciences in clinical medicine and their use and influence in law and public life.
The need for a clinical perspective will only increase. As knowledge and technologies of the brain sciences continue to expand, questions of if and how neuroscientific tools and should be best applied to the real world of patient care are becoming ever more prevalent and complex. Clinical Neuroethics will bridge bench to bedside by providing a forum for exchange of ideas and insights focal to the engagement of brain science in clinical settings. In this way, Clinical Neuroethics will provide a vector and nexus for deep and meaningful discourse on the issues, questions and problems generated by the intersection of brain science and clinical care.
