|Description:||Medical tourism has a long history and covers a broad range of activities. In recent years, one facet of this industry that has begun to attract attention is the emergence of “stem cell tourism”, a practice whereby individuals pursue|
stem cell-based interventions for a wide range of conditions despite insuffi cient evidence of safety or effi cacy. As is true of many areas of medical tourism, stem cell tourism raises various health policy issues and presents a number of research challenges. This presentation will present results from an on-going research agenda exploring the scope of this phenomenon and the associated implications for health systems, health care providers, biomedical research communities and patients. It will conclude with a brief discussion about a current research project examining the involvement of physicians in stem cell tourism and the role of professional regulation in this context.
