The National Council on Disability (NCD) is seeking proposals for a report series on bioethics and disability.
The report series will examine policies and practices related to the availability of medical interventions and life-saving medical care for people with disabilities.
It will examine
five specific areas where disability and bioethics intersect, with a focus on how a person’s disability impacts medical decisions:
organ transplants; medical futility; physician assisted suicide; genetic testing for fetal disability; and Quality Adjusted Life Years.
Each report will make findings and recommendations aimed at improving access to life-saving medical care for people with disabilities, and improving the understanding of policy makers and the medical community on the value of the lives of people with disabilities.
The full solicitation, including scope of work is available at https://ncd.gov/newsroom/2018/notice-funding-opportunity-bioethics-and-disability-report-series
