Bioethics is a multidisciplinary field that encompasses academic bioethics, clinical bioethics and health policy. Contemporary currents in bioethics emphasize the significance of practical experience for moral judgment, the influence of narrative and rhetorical style on ethical reasoning and the need to examine the social structures involved in the creation of power, authority and oppression.
