Ethics in Innovation Twitter Chat 5/5/2014


We are pleased to have been asked to co-host the BioethxChat next Monday, on May 5 at 8:30 pm (EST), to discuss the Ethics of Innovation. The BioethxChat is run by @jchevinsky, to reach an interdisciplinary group of students, professionals, and members of the general public. Live chats are hosted every Monday at 8:30 pm (EST).

If this is your first Twitter Chat, we recommend using TweetChat to participate and follow along with the conversation. Below you'll find our questions for the chat, and topics covered.



  • How would you define innovation as it relates to health care?
  • How can  innovation shape health care?
  • What are potential ethical risks that come with new innovation?
  • How is innovation different from quality improvement?
  • How do you keep “ethics” in the innovation process?
