This week, it is a Sound Ethics extravaganza. Host Barbara Lewis and IU bioethicist Eric Meslin revisit the following topics: the ethics of prescribing placebos; "Octomom" and IVF regulation; the "conscience rule" for medical professionals; exceptions to informed consent in medical research; and a terrific resource for evaluating accuracy in health news stories.
