Stem cell donation to sibling [FictionAL]

The case

Ben, the youngest brother of Sarah, Claire, Frank and John has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. A stem cell transplant is his best hope.

Each of the siblings faces an initial decision of whether to be tested to see whether they are compatible.

Initially we use the case of Sarah to explore the decision support that can be provided by the program called Annalisa.

The source

The story draws heavily on the paper by Alison Begley and Susan Piggott (2012) Exploring moral distress in potential sibling stem cell donors Nursing Ethics 20(2) 178-188.].Some details have been changed to make ensure the timing of the analyses is coherent.
