The Nuffield Council on Bioethics produces authoritative reports on issues of ethical importance. Reaching Out to Young People committee (of which I am a member) aims to produce teaching resources to accompany the production of some of these reports. Most recently, we have released some materials to help students (particularly A level students) to explore Ethical Issues associated with Dementia. These resources are available via the Nuffield website.
Christine was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The BBC documentary series One Life gave a personal insight into the effect of the disease on both the sufferer and the family around them, as they endeavour to cope with this deliberating illness. Christine (mostly referred to as Chris in the documentary) is resolute in her determination to remain independent. This, however, becomes increasingly difficult as the disease becomes progressively worse.
