"Ethics and its implications for healthcare delivery under constraints of scarcity are not simple concepts, even for those working within the healthcare system.  It’s time for ethicists to make a concerted effort to communicate these concepts to a broader public audience... Toward that end, six clinical ethicists from different disciplines and areas of the country, along with an illustrator with a master’s degree in Health Communication, worked together to create an illustrated handout to explain basic concepts of public health ethics relevant in a pandemic." Co-created by Center for Bioethics Affiliate faculty member Joan M. Henriksen, PhD, RN, HEC-C.
