Press release - Psychiatry Ethics Film Festival

11.11.2010

Introduction

We are supporting the annual biomedical ethics film festival held at Edinburgh Filmhouse.

Story

The Genomics Forum is delighted to once again support the annual biomedical ethics film festival held at Edinburgh Filmhouse, 26 - 28 November 2010.

Do modern genetics at last allow us to understand where psychiatric disorders spring from? Will there soon be new forms of remedy? Is it ethical to propose forms of pre-natal screening for mental health problems? And how do clinicians handle the issue of consent with patients suffering from profound psychiatric problems. These are some of the issues that will be discussed at the Psychiatry Ethics Film Festival, held at Edinburgh Filmhouse from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 November 2010.
