dc.description "Parsons, chairman of the CMA's Committee on Ethics for 10 years, announced at last year's annual meeting that he had held the post long enough, and stepped down. The Halifax fami­ly physician took with him a decade of experience that no other Canadian doctor can match. For 10 years, Parsons was the doctor reporters phoned when they needed a quote about medical ethics. He was also the doctor on the hot seat when he presented his committee's report during 10 CMA annual meetings, and during a period when new ethical issues, such ~s the treat­ment of AIDS patients, appeared with great regularity but little warning."--excerpt from introduction. en_US
