Several terms, either as as keywords or as subject heading phrases, can be used in the search strategies for locating material on ethics. Terms include ethics, bioethics, "medical ethics," "decision making and ethics," or "science and ethics."
You will combine the terms above with additional search terms such as "data security laws," "data security--moral and ethical aspects," "genetic privacy," biomedical, confidentiality, privacy, or "medical decision making."
