"I'm not a real bioethicist, I just play one on TV!"

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:26pm
Earlier this year, we blogged about House, MD and Grey's Anatomy: Showing the world the need for clinical ethicists one episode at a time.

Reuters claims that health experts help TV docs get facts straight :

"That young mother with breast cancer on "Grey's Anatomy" may do more than just drive the storyline: She may also be teaching you something.

Recognizing the reach of popular television shows, real-life doctors and public health experts are at work behind the scenes to add a dose of education to entertainment."

Now if they could only get a bioethicist on House MD to stop his bad-boy behavior! (or in the case of Grey's Anatomy, bad-boy, bad-girl, just plain bad behavior).
