Tainted blood scandal

2010-03-19

Following a resounding not-guilty verdict in the first criminal trial stemming from the Canadian tainted blood scandal of the early 1990’s, Queen’s Philosophy professor Udo Schuklenk is available to discuss the controversy over the verdict, and the repercussions for the medical profession.
“This type of conduct undermines what is at the heart of the health care professional/patient relationship, namely trust in professional conduct,” says Dr. Schuklenk.
Dr. Schuklenk, the Ontario Research Chair in Public Policy, is an expert on bioethics, public health issues, and infectious disease control. His most recent journal contribution includes a paper in the American Journal of Public Health on mandatory HIV testing.
