The “New Charter for Health Care Workers” and the ethics of organ donation and transplantation. Commentary


Abstract


Comparison is made between the proposals put forward by the “New Charter for Health Care Workers” in the matter of organ transplants and other models of bioethics. The personalist approach adopted by the New Charter is illustrated and the proposals contained in it are finally placed alongside the reference ethical principles underlying the Italian transplant network: they are found to be fully in agreement.
