Where to start?

Dear Daniel

An impossible task, medical ethics in 60mins doesn't even scratch the
surface. But at least it will get them talking.

You might want to refer the doctors, following your presentation, to
some books for further reading and reflection.

Professor Tony Hope's "Medical Ethics: A Very Short Introduction"
from Oxford Universities ETHOX centre would be an excellent place to start
and indeed continue.
