November Bioethics Commission Meeting Continues Its Deliberations On Deliberation

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Commission) will next meet in the Washington, D.C. area on November 17.  There is no agenda available yet, but based on the Federal Register notice, this meeting will continue the Commission’s work on deliberative methods and bioethics education that has informed much of its work.  The description of the meeting in the notice is nearly identical to that of the September 2015 meeting.

This general issue has received more attention from the Commission than any other subject, so I am not terribly surprised to see the Commission describe this work as its ‘capstone report.’  It does present an air of finality to things, even with over a year left in the Commission’s tenure.
