The Singapore Bioethics Casebook Project at the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is a free and open-access online casebook for continuing professional education in the ethics of healthcare and social care.
The 2017 Edition comprises 10 teaching and learning cases on Caring for Older People in an Ageing Society, and 12 cases on Making Difficult Decisions with Patients and Families. Each case is supported by expert commentaries highlighting ethical issues and a practice perspective by a professional in healthcare or social care offering practical insight. Additional support is provided by informational backgrounders, questions for reflection, and further online resources.
The characters that appear in the Casebook are fictitious and modelled for teaching and learning purposes on the basis of common encounters described by healthcare and social care professionals, and do not refer to specific, real individuals, living or dead. Any individuals appearing in photographs depicting these characters bear no relationship or connection whatsoever to the stories ascribed to those characters.
