On the 18th of August I met with Dr Mohammed Sakel and Dr Robin Mckenzie to discuss the study which I would undertake during the summer. Since then I have been researching articles concerning persistent vegetative state, low consciousness state with the legal and ethical issues that it entails.
Mostly I have conducted a literature search using major databases such as google scholar, BMJ and PUBMED. The search was mainly completed by using keywords such as legal, ethical, PVS, Low awareness state ect…….
My next meeting will be on the 31st of august.
