CBSSM Working Group Meeting-Reshma Jagsi, MD/Megan Knaus

Tue, September 18, 2018, 4:00pm
Location: 
NCRC bldg 16 266C

Reshma Jagsi MD, DPhil, Professor and Deputy Chair, Department of Radiation Oncology, Director, Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine, and Megan Knaus, MPH, Research Associate of CBSSM will be seeking feedback on a survey draft. As part of a Greenwall Foundation project, this survey aims to study patient and public perspectives on the ethical issues in fundraising from patients, with a goal of understanding where current practices may diverge from what patients and the general public view to be acceptable, in order to focus deliberation on where changes to current practice and policies may be needed.

This two-day conference took place on the UM campus and is presented by the University of Michigan Medical School.  It was also supported by the Office of the Vice President for Research; the Center for Ethics and Public Life; Rackham Distinguished Faculty Grant; Greenwall Foundation; and Institute for Social Policy and Understanding.  Click here for conference videos, course packets, and reference materials.

Brian Zikmund-Fisher joined other public health experts to talk about the increasing number of outbreaks of diseases that had largely been eliminated by vaccinations generations ago. Many doctors attribute the rising cases of measles, mumps and whooping cough to parents skipping or delaying vaccinating their children.

Research Topics: 

Genomics, Health and Society

This special interest group is led by Dr. Scott Roberts who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education at the School of Public Health as well as the Director and Co-Director of the Public Health Genetics Certificate Program and the Dual Degree Program in Public Health and Genetic Counseling, respectively. Research within this area examines the ethical, social and behavioral implications of advances in genomics. CBSSM serves as a crucial locus for facilitating collaborations across disciplines and units. In fact, several groups across campus have invited us to collaborate on the study of bioethical issues related to burgeoning genomics-related research; these partners include investigators at U-M’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Michigan Center for Translational Pathology, and the Division of Pediatric Genetics.

Topics of interest include the following:

Title: The public’s preferences for the return of secondary findings identified through genome sequencing: Information and deliberation make a difference

Summary: Genomic sequencing is becoming a part of clinical practice. Existing studies are limited and conclude that people would like unrestricted access to all of their genetic information. However, we do not know the extent to which respondents in these studies took into account the complex scientific and ethical issues that attend genome sequencing. In order to address this gap, we organized a deliberative democracy (DD) session to educate members of the public on genome sequencing, to engage them in dialogue about the benefits and risks of the clinical implementation of this technology, and to elicit their informed perspectives about policies governing the return of secondary findings.
