Introduction to Empirical Bioethics

Empirical bioethics is a relatively new field that seeks to integrate ethical (normative) research with empirical research. Academics working in the Centre for Ethics in Medicine at the University of Bristol have world-leading expertise in this suite of methodological approaches. They have developed and delivered training worldwide, and are at the forefront of both research and teaching in this field, with a wealth of first-hand experience.
