Episode 4: Potential benefits offered by robotics must be factored into ethical discussions


In the fourth and final instalment of a NeuroNews video series, Jeffrey Saver (University of California, Los Angeles [UCLA] Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA) outlines why a diffusion of responsibility—as compared to more traditional, in-person care approaches—is one of multiple barriers that must be overcome to realise the full potential of robotics in neurointerventional surgery. He also concludes by alluding to the various benefits these technologies boast and states a belief that these benefits should also be factored into the ethical equation moving forward.

This video is part of a series in which Jeffrey Saver speaks to NeuroNews to discuss several key ethical considerations that the global neurointerventional community must reckon with as interest in robot-assisted procedures and remote care continues to grow.
