I receive a lot of press releases in my role on the Board of th eNational Rural Health Alliance. This one across my desk today, is, I think, worthy of a larger audience. How would you answer the questions posed?

THE ETHICS OF CARING IN A GOOD SOCIETY: A NATIONAL CONVERSATION REVEALED (NSW)
In April 2007 Carers NSW, with partners the Macquarie Group Foundation and St James Ethics Centre, undertook the two-year long national conversation, the results of which have not only global implications, but first and foremost provide a record of what Australians from all sectors of the community think about caring. In a time when research often analyses its subject in terms of economic costs and benefits, this project took a different approach. Exploring the ethical foundations of caring in a good society was structured around four key questions: What is a good society? What is caring? Who is responsible for caring? What does caring look like in a good society
The report of the research is available from Australian Carers Association
