In 2017 Waleed Ali and Scott Stephens from the ABC National Radio Program “Minefield” came to facilitate a session with academic Ethicist Professor Rufus Black on the topic “Emerging therapies – How do we (health care professionals & public hospitals) manage the increasing demand for expensive therapies for rare
conditions?”. TheMaster class with the RCH consultants took place along with a recording for the Minefield show and podcast. It was an excellent session and stimulated great debate. As Scott Stephens reflected: "I cannot tell you what a
joy and delight it was to be with you all this morning. I don’t
think I’ll ever forget the experience of having a
surgeon, then a palliative care specialist, then a geneticist weigh in so
brilliantly, so articulately, with such insight and sensitivity, on such
serious issues. The people gathered in that room, their dedication and professional
integrity are a tremendous testament to the institutional ethos that you’ve
cultivated. Without exaggeration, that was the highlight of my year! I’m
so very, very grateful to you for the invitation."
