A Choice for Life
Decision-making Process in High-risk PregnanciesStreaming Video - 2009
Medical technology bestows a diagnostic power with thorny consequences: depending on what the test results reveal, parents and doctors can decide whether or not to let a pregnancy run its course. By following three couples dealing with high-risk pregnancies at a hospital in France, this program gets inside the complex decision-making process used by doctors and obstetrics specialists, as well as how they present their recommendations to the parents with whom the decision ultimately rests. With its access to behind-the-scenes staff meetings and private doctor/patient dialogues, this case study is an excellent resource for health care professionals and medical counseling staff alike.
