At #AABHL2022, @MathaviSen argues that, while legal, #Singapore's differential #COVIDー19 subsidies based on vaccination status, is ethically problematic

Lightning round: Ryan Friets, RA at @NUS_CBmE, on intervening in cases of undue influence. Argues autonomy shld be applied symetrically: when patient accepts treatment, and when patient declines. #AABHL2022

It’s always a pleasure to listen to @G_Owen_Schaefer. Today the discussion is about MEURI (emergency use of unregistered interventions) and how it IS indeed research. Continuing the trend of bold statements and proposals I’ve heard so far @AABHL @WePublicHealth !!!!!

Congratulations to Margaret Palazzo from @ANUMedSchool and
@SereneAKOng of @NUS_CBmE who, as joint winners of this years Max Charlesworth Prize, both presented their work today at the annual @AABHL conference: https://medicalschool.anu.edu.au/research/research-stories/medical-student-takes-out-bioethics-association%E2%80%99s-best-essay-prize #AABHL2022

Fantastic presentation on empirical bioethics by @ethical_mikey. Learnt so much from it (especially about worries about different ways to justify thick integration). #aabhl2022

I neglected to take photographic evidence, but @amurali284 has wrapped his #AABHL2022 talk on our paper applying a public justification framework to IRB. In a nutshell: in cases of reasonable disagreement, defer to researchers. https://aabhlconference.com/4872

#AABHL2022 is a go. Really excited to be in Tasmania for 3 days of bioethics chat with old friends, new friends and 8 good friends and colleagues from the @NUS_CBmE crew
