Hi!  I’m Jamie Nelson, a Professor of Philosophy at Michigan State University in the US.  I’ve been thinking , writing, and teaching about the ways both health care and bioethics tend to misunderstand the crucial importance of families to patient care, and how families can be affected—sometimes damaged—by the demands made on them.  I’m looking forward to working wth you this summer as we continue to refine our understanding of these tough issues at the cutting edge of contemporary practice and theory. I’ll be mainly talking about justice and injustice , both within families, and between families and health care institutions—issues that raise both perplexing conceptual issues and that are crucial to the lives to millions of people caught between the needs of those they love, and the routines of health practice and policies.
