Abstract / short description:
The comprehensive and fair provision of health services for all members of a society is not only a core task of governmental action but a value to pursue for every society. A shift to disaster medicine is necessary, if resources are insufficiently available to ensure individual care for all people in the context of extreme events. A special situation in which this disaster medicine approach is applied is the Zivilschutzfall (protection of civil population in a national conflict situation according to art. 73, German constitution). Although the German Konzept Zivile Verteidigung (Civil Defence Guideline) provides a framework for this case and ethical questions arise in various regards, there is not yet an ethics guide to support emergency forces. The EKAMED project addresses this blind spot and develops a guideline for dealing with ethical issues of medical and care personnel in the context of disaster medicine, as well as teach-ing material for the use of this guideline is developed.
