Ethicist challenges conventional views of human dignity. WCR This Week. Francis de Sales Holy Spirit St. WCR This Week. Ethicist challenges conventional views of human dignity. Daniel Sulmasy. First, I was told that no questions about medicine and ethics were relevant, so I should just sit down and go home, said Sulmasy, an internist, philosopher and ethicist. Many people assume that the concept of human dignity can be found in Scripture, yet Sulmasy said that is false. Dignity is not based on a person's self-esteem. Losing our independence, our limitations in society by disease, especially neurological disease like Lou Gehrig's or Alzheimer's, seem to mean for us a loss of dignity, said Sulmasy. In a sense, he has lost his attributed dignity, but he can never lose his intrinsic dignity, Sulmasy said. They lose esteem in the eyes of others, and it is their sickness that brings this upon them, said Sulmasy. The central question of dignity in health care is whether this person's intrinsic dignit...

*  Atheist Ethicist: Religion As Child Abuse
... Atheist Ethicist. A view of right and wrong, good and evil, in a universe without gods. Saturday, June 23, 2007. Religion As Child Abuse. In previous posts, I have given a superficial account of the idea that religion is a form of child abuse. However, the claim continues to be made, and I want to look into it in more detail. Abuse and Maliciousness In Theism as Mental Illness or Child Abuse, I argued against the claim that religion is child abuse on the grounds that the term abuse is an accusation of maliciousness a lack of concern for the well-being of those abused. In the case of religion, this is often false. The people who teach religion to children love their children as much as any parent or adult can love children. They are simply mistaken about the facts of the matter with respect to what is in the child s interests. I used the example of a parent who took thalidomide in the 1950s. This drug caused severe birth defects in children. This was a tragedy, but it was not an instance of abuse. It is a...

*  Atheist Ethicist: Well Founded Beliefs
... Atheist Ethicist. Saturday, August 05, 2006. The 76-year-old Robertson told viewers that was the most convincing evidence I ve seen on global warming in a long time. The fact is, the heat index on the east coast at a particular time is very poor evidence of global warming. When it comes to the climate, the thinking person does not draw conclusions from his private experience with one part of the globe it might not be representative of the whole climate. That climate index convinced thinking people of the increase in global temperatures long ago. This is up from 36% percent who believed this in February 2005. It is important to note that in this essay I am not talking about what a person believes, but a person s ability to distinguish good evidence from bad evidence, and to draw conclusions based on good evidence. because the evidence of that evidence over there, however strong it may be and I do not know of any strong evidence does not grant any moral or intellectual justification to accepting claims tha...

... Atheist Ethicist. This means that between today, and the day the House votes to override the veto, either 37 Representatives have to be brought to their senses, or the bill will die and, in a very real sense, there is a potential for millions of people who to die or suffer permanent sickness or injury who might have otherwise lived or been cured or healed. It rests in the fact that there is no real difference between the Representative who will vote no on this legislation for religious reasons and the President who will say veto, and the suicide bomber with his finger on the button. This one difference does not erase the similarities the real-world death, injury, and disease that would not have otherwise existed if not for the irrational beliefs of those who could have prevented it. Our message to the friend of the would-be suicide-bomber/terrorist, and the person who has the ear of a Representative who might refuse to override a Presidential veto when the time comes, is the same.

*  Atheist Ethicist: Belief Without Evidence or Faith
... Atheist Ethicist. Monday, July 09, 2007. Belief Without Evidence or Faith. However, we can also find it in the Democratic Party, where beliefs become popular because of a political fad, rather than from an understanding of the available evidence. Evidence and the Importance of Ethanol Another example in which the Party faithful seems to be pushing ideas that lack evidence-based support is in the realm of corn-based ethanol. However, if somebody is actually interested in renewable energy, then corn-ethanol should not be compared to gasoline. Subsidizing the corn-ethanol industry means taking business, profits, and investment capital away from the cane-ethanol industry. Corn-ethanol kicks in when the marginal benefit of cane-ethanol equals the marginal benefit of corn-ethanol. What these subsidies do is to distort the marginal benefit of corn ethanol, making it appear to be higher than it is in fact. When the marginal benefit of corn-ethanol has been raised by subsidies, then resources get transferred from...

Or is it a boldfaced or barefaced lie. s the 2000 campaigners practice their endgamesmanship, each side accuses the other of baldfaced lies. In some instances, the accusers prefer barefaced lies, and in a Virginia race, the mouth-filling modifier has come out sounding like boldfaced lies. Where does the truth lie. Yes, in this instance, the truth does lie; unless your subject is a hen, lay must have an object. It seems that the unadorned lie no longer has its old puissance. Time was, that word was so inflammatory as to need a euphemism: fib was the slang gentler, prevarication the bookish term. But to score as an emphatic charge, it now needs an adjective. "That's a dirty lie" used to have a ring to it, but that adjective is now almost exclusively applied to jokes and lyri...

*  Research ethics consultation
... Analogous to clinical ethics consultation, 'Research Ethics Consultation' REC describes a formal way for researchers to solicit and receive expert ethical guidance related to biomedical research. The first REC service was established at the National Institutes of Health NIH Clinical Center in 1997. 1 Today, most REC services are found at academic institutions, and the majority of current services were originally launched in response to the 2006 NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award program, as applicants to that program were required to have procedures in place to address ethical concerns raised by their research. 2 While still a young discipline with no explicit standards, individuals serving as research ethics consultants are expected to be familiar with research ethics and ethical analysis; knowledgeable about the applicable regulations, laws, and policies; and ideally also have some biomedical research experience and scientific expertise. 3 REC is distinct from related services, such as those ...

*  An Ethical Analysis of Preventing the Spread of Seasonal Influenza
... Ethical Decision Making. An Ethical Analysis of Preventing the Spread of Seasonal Influenza By Sarah Ludwig These comments refer to the case study Seasonal Influenza: The Ethics of Staying Home. If more people took the flu seriously, more would say that Greg should stay home. At Santa Clara, policies about missing class are currently determined by individual professors and departments, but a university-wide policy about skipping class while ill would better serve the Santa Clara community. Greg must weigh his grades, his scholarships, and his group members against the health of his classmates, his professors, and the many other people with whom they will come into contact. Greg is infringing on their rights by coming to class when he is sick. Policies should be in place that do not require people to come to school or work if they are sick, but require students, professors, employees, and employers to abide by these guidelines and keep everyone safe. Greg should certainly avoid coming into close contact w...

*  Helping nurses make ethical decisions
Home Health Care. Cynthia "Cindy" Clark. Cynthia “Cindy” Clark. For example, The ICN Code of Ethics for Nurses asserts, “Inherent in nursing is respect for human rights, including the right to life, to dignity and to be treated with respect” ICN, 2000, p. These include: The right to health and access to health care End-of-life issues such as euthanasia and extending life Quality of life for people with terminal illness Cloning and reproduction While these issues continue to attract public attention, they present nurses and other health care providers with real ethical dilemmas in their clinical practices and professional responsibilities. The ICN Code of Ethics for Nurses 2000 affirms that nurses have four fundamental responsibilities: Promoting health Preventing illness Restoring health Alleviating suffering As Fry and Johnstone 2002 have indicated, a nurse’s professional responsibilities can result in ethical conflict. The ICN Code of Ethics for Nurses provides a clear resolution of this dual loyalty when i...

Atheists are frequently accosted with this accusation, suggesting that in order for non-belief to be reasonable, they must have presented deductively certain grounds. Many atheists within the deductive atheology tradition have done so, but those arguments are frequently ignored. But more importantly, the critic has invoked a standard of justification that almost none of our beliefs meet. If we demand that beliefs are not justified unless we have deductive proof, then all of us will have to throw out the vast majority of things we currently believe oxygen exists, the Earth orbits the Sun, viruses cause disease, the 2008 summer Olympics were in China, and so on. ...

*  On Euler’s Pentagonal Theorem
where the numbers subtracted from n in each argument are the pentagonal numbers, i.e., numbers of the form 3k 2 + k /2, where k ranges over all positive and negative integer values, and the sign of each term is - 1 k+1. Therefore, the reciprocal of the generating function for p n is the generating function for the coefficients of the recurrence formula for p n. Also, the partitions of n with smallest term 2 can be formed by appending 2 to each of the partitions of n - 2 whose smallest terms are at least 2. We just need to determine the coefficients of each element from the first column. Likewise, there are two representations of “3”, with opposite signs, so the coefficient of p n - 4 is also 0. However, there are three representations of “4”, two negative and one positive, so the coefficient of p n - 5 is - 1. These are the only representations not covered by any of the infinite sequence of mappings, so the terms corresponding to these numbers will be the only ones with non-zero coefficients, and their coeffi...

... Respect for human rights. Conflicts between autonomy and beneficence/non-maleficence. List of medical ethics cases. Well-known medical ethics cases include:. Much harm has been done to patients as a result, as in the saying, "The treatment was a success, but the patient died." It is not only more important to do no harm than to do good; it is also important to 'know' how likely it is that your treatment will harm a patient. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 was the first major document to define human rights. Medical doctors have an ethical duty to protect the human rights and human dignity of the patient so the advent of a document that defines human rights has had its effect on medical ethics. Most codes of medical ethics now require respect for the human rights of the patient. The principles of autonomy and beneficence/non-maleficence may also be expanded to include effects on the relatives of patients or even the medical practitioners, the overall population and economic issues when maki...

ASDA Policy The ASDA House of Delegates has passed several resolutions focused on ethics, including updating the Code of Ethics, most recently in 2010. What Has ASDA Done In 2009, ASDA published a White Paper on Ethics and Professionalism in Dental Education. It provides an overview of the state of ethics in dental education.

It seems its hard to have an idea for kits and products that haven't been thought of or made before as either just a project or a kit, but if at the time of conception or design you don't know about previous peoples work, would you worry about being called out to have plagiarized their work/idea.

← T20 World Cup – Alternative Commentary. Le Tour Ethics. Posted on. July 5, 2012 by. Moses. I’m now into my third year of following Le Tour and have a few opinions on riders’ ethics. If you’re going for the points, then in my mind either you or your team must take a share of the load to get you into a position from where you can contest the points. If you sit on the back wheel of a champion till the very last second then when you see the line you pounce and take the points, you are a fuckwit. If you then complain about the quality of the lead out that you’ve just leeched off, or you try to coerce a champion into hunting down a breakaway after he’s carried your brother up a hill for 100ks+ then you are an oxygen thief.

(1/71) In defence of medical ethics.

A number of recent publications by the philosopher David Seedhouse are discussed. Although medicine is an eminently ethical enterprise, the technical and ethical aspects of health care practices can be distinguished, therefore justifying the existence of medical ethics and its teaching as a specific part of every medical curriculum. The goal of teaching medical ethics is to make health care practitioners aware of the essential ethical aspects of their work. Furthermore, the contention that rational bioethics is a fruitless enterprise because it analyses non-rational social events seems neither theoretically tenable nor to be borne out by actual practice. Medical ethics in particular and bioethics in general, constitute a field of expertise that must make itself understandable and convincing to relevant audiences in health care.  (+info)

(3/71) Power and the teaching of medical ethics.

This paper argues that ethics education needs to become more reflective about its social and political ethic as it participates in the construction and transmission of medical ethics. It argues for a critical approach to medical ethics and explores the political context in medical schools and some of the peculiar problems in medical ethics education.  (+info)

(4/71) Ethics consultation on demand: concepts, practical experiences and a case study.

Despite the increasing interest in clinical ethics, ethics consultation as a professional service is still rare in Europe. In this paper I refer to examples in the United States. In Germany, university hospitals and medical faculties are still hesitant about establishing yet another "committee". One of the reasons for this hesitation lies in the ignorance that exists here about how to provide medical ethics services; another reason is that medical ethics itself is not yet institutionalised at many German universities. The most important obstacle, however, may be that medical ethics has not yet demonstrated its relevance to the needs of those caring for patients. The Centre for Ethics and Law, Freiburg, has therefore taken a different approach from that offered elsewhere: clinical ethics consultation is offered on demand, the consultation being available to clinician(s) in different forms. This paper describes our experiences with this approach; practical issues are illustrated by a case study.  (+info)

(5/71) Are medical ethicists out of touch? Practitioner attitudes in the US and UK towards decisions at the end of life.

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether UK and US health care professionals share the views of medical ethicists about medical futility, withdrawing/withholding treatment, ordinary/extraordinary interventions, and the doctrine of double effect. DESIGN, SUBJECTS AND SETTING: A 138-item attitudinal questionnaire completed by 469 UK nurses studying the Open University course on "Death and Dying" was compared with a similar questionnaire administered to 759 US nurses and 687 US doctors taking the Hastings Center course on "Decisions near the End of Life". RESULTS: Practitioners accept the relevance of concepts widely disparaged by bioethicists: double effect, medical futility, and the distinctions between heroic/ordinary interventions and withholding/withdrawing treatment. Within the UK nurses' group a "rationalist" axis of respondents who describe themselves as having "no religion" are closer to the bioethics consensus on withholding and withdrawing treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Professionals' beliefs differ substantially from the recommendations of their professional bodies and from majority opinion in bioethics. Bioethicists should be cautious about assuming that their opinions will be readily accepted by practitioners.  (+info)

(6/71) Clinical ethics support services in the UK: an investigation of the current provision of ethics support to health professionals in the UK.

OBJECTIVE: To identify and describe the current state of clinical ethics support services in the UK. DESIGN: A series of questionnaire surveys of key individuals in National Health Service (NHS) trusts, health authorities, health boards, local research ethics committees and health professional organisations. Interviews with chairmen/women of clinical ethics committees identified in the surveys. SETTING: The UK National Health Service. RESULTS: Responses to the questionnaires were received from all but one NHS trust and all but one health authority/board. A variety of models of clinical ethics support were identified including twenty formal clinical ethics committees (CECs). A further twenty NHS trusts expressed an intention to establish a CEC within the next twelve months. Most CECs in the UK have been in existence less than five years and are still defining their role. The chairmen identified education of committee members and contact with other ethics committees as important requirements for committee development. Problems were identified around lack of support for the committee and with raising the profile of the committee within the institution. There has been little evaluation of clinical ethics support services either in the UK or in other countries with longer established services. What evaluation has occurred has focused on process rather than outcome measures. CONCLUSIONS: Clinical ethics support services are developing in the UK. A number of issues have been identified that need to be addressed if such support services are to develop effectively.  (+info)

(7/71) The Freiburg approach to ethics consultation: process, outcome and competencies.

The paper describes how ethics consultation can be valuable to health professionals, patients and their families in understanding and evaluating ethical values and their consequences in a particular situation. Ethics consultation as it is practised at the university hospital of Freiburg is a special professional service offered by members of an academic institution. The practical approach and the goals are illustrated by a case study showing the difficulties of deciding about the limitation of intensive care medicine after heart surgery in the setting of maximum treatment. Here, the ethics consultation was initiated by the relatives of the patient who wanted a decision to withhold further life-sustaining treatment. Following the experiences in Freiburg, it is concluded that clinical ethicists have to cover a variety of relevant fields of knowledge, need special analytical skills, and should have professional competence in counselling, including conflict mediation or crisis intervention.  (+info)

(8/71) What triggers requests for ethics consultations?

OBJECTIVES: While clinical practice is complicated by many ethical dilemmas, clinicians do not often request ethics consultations. We therefore investigated what triggers clinicians' requests for ethics consultation. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone survey. SETTING: Internal medicine practices throughout the United States. PARTICIPANTS: Randomly selected physicians practising in internal medicine, oncology and critical care. MAIN MEASUREMENTS: Socio-demographic characteristics, training in medicine and ethics, and practice characteristics; types of ethical problems that prompt requests for consultation, and factors triggering consultation requests. RESULTS: One hundred and ninety of 344 responding physicians (55%) reported requesting ethics consultations. Physicians most commonly reported requesting ethics consultations for ethical dilemmas related to end-of-life decision making, patient autonomy issues, and conflict. The most common triggers that led to consultation requests were: 1) wanting help resolving a conflict; 2) wanting assistance interacting with a difficult family, patient, or surrogate; 3) wanting help making a decision or planning care, and 4) emotional triggers. Physicians who were ethnically in the minority, practised in communities under 500,000 population, or who were trained in the US were more likely to request consultations prompted by conflict. CONCLUSIONS: Conflicts and other emotionally charged concerns triggers consultation requests more commonly than other cognitively based concerns. Ethicists need to be prepared to mediate conflicts and handle sometimes difficult emotional situations when consulting. The data suggest that ethics consultants might serve clinicians well by consulting on a more proactive basis to avoid conflicts and by educating clinicians to develop mediation skills.  (+info)


Why could genetic engineering be considered dangerous by medical ethicists?


and 
What are some of the positive things that can be achieved through genetic engineering?
----------

Well it could harm your body's ability to fight off diseases if it became too specialized.


Why is genetic engineering considered dangerous by medical ethicists?


Genetic engineering is playing GOD without the credentials.  Nothing genetic engineering has done to date has been successful in terms of improving nutritional content of food.  In fact, GE experiments are failing all over the globe. 

Just look at the soybean fiasco.  Round-up ready soybeans are mutating and they simply do not know what proteins are being formed from one area to another.  These foreign proteins are causing all kinds of allergies in people and that is just the beginning.  Mutations and crop infiltration of foreign genes are a very scary thing.  NO testing is being done as well because our illustrious FDA has declared the GMO products as SAFE and that means NO TESTING.  NO Labeling is being done so, NO traceability is happening.  

When you alter genes in a plant and do not know what is going to happen long term and you see mutations already happening in plants, there is no way to justify this action ethically because no one can predict where it will end up.  This is true especially when I can tell you from personal experience that I can grow plants more nutritive, more productive, for less money than any GMO crop in existence today.  The amount of money being spent on this ridiculous technology and lunacy that is being promoted as SAFE is unconscionable, irresponsible, and simply UNETHICAL.

If the GMO L-tryptophan product that killed sever hundred people were introduced today, it would be allowed on the market.  That is a tremendously scary thought and should create a wake up call, but just the opposite is happening.  The FDA has a mandate to promote this lunacy and is doing so.

good luck to you

You seem to be under the impression that vegetarians/vegans value all life equally, whether it be an insect or a chimpanzee.  With the exception of some Buddhists, I know of no vegetarians/vegans who think like this.


Is there any famous people who have osteogenesis imperfecta?

Should parents lose custody of super obese kids?


According to this article, Doctors and ethicists say yes. What do you think?
http://www.wdbj7.com/news/wtvr-us-med-obese-kids-custody,0,492361.story
----------

I think there are a lot of factors that go into kids' weight, while it makes me really sad to see a super obese child I wouldn't go so far as to say take them out of the home. In a prior career I was a nutritionist for the WIC program and saw some super obese kids. Some of the parents did not care but other parents were truly alarmed and looking everywhere for help-I can still remember one lady who was somewhat overweight had a little girl who was 6 and weighed over 100 lbs., the doctor kept telling her she'd "grow into it" over time. I felt so bad for her.
I also know a couple who kids all start out gigantic-the younggest was 25 pounds at 6 months-but they are both normal sized people who were huge kids. Everyone in their family is like that-the older kids have thinned out with age.
My kids are naturally small and my son hasn't been even on the 5th percentile since he was 9 months old. But he is well loved and we have done all we can and ran all the suggested tests to rule out problems-I wouldn't want someone taking him away from us because he is outside the norm.


How should vaccines be rationed?


In the next influenza pandemic, should a 60-year-old woman with heart disease and asthma receive a flu vaccine before a healthy 4-year-old?
P.S. I'm not a republican :-)
----------

There is no easy answer for this. I work in public health, and this is a decision we struggle with. 

First, you have to consider the biology of it - should we give a vaccine to someone that is incapable of mounting an immune response, or can only mount a poor one? This simple answer is that it doesn't make sense to do so, but that would mean we never vaccinate older people or those with AIDS. That brings me to the next point - politics. The political climate makes many of the decisions for us, with science and logic going out the window. Another consideration is when we look at the vaccine solely as a preventative approach - if we vaccinate people who are most likely to spread disease, we would maybe do more to stop an outbreak. For example, it might make more sense to require the nursing home staff and visitors to be vaccinated, rather than the residents (who can't mount a very good immune response to the vaccine). Finally, there is always the question of the "worth" of a person. You can look at it in many different ways (potential future earnings, projected years of life left, "value" of that person's survival), and get many different answers. That is one area that ethicists have been arguing for centuries, and I don't think I have an answer to.


RE: A wrist band that indicates that substitute blood is not to be used on a patient?


I read about a substitute for blood that was used in some hospitals on a
trial basis. Unless the patient was wearing a wrist band that indicated
that the substitute blood was not to be used, the hospital had a legal
right to use the artificial blood without notifying the patient. 
Where can these wrist bands can be obtained?
google "artificial blood" and there is an article about it from CNN.
This article is from 2004. I can't find the more recent article that mentions the wrisbands.
Information just found. PolyHeme produced by Northfield Labs in Northfield,Illinois.
----------

I read about this. There were clinical trials going on in certain cities. In those cities only, one had to get a wristband if one did not want to receive the substitute blood products. I didn't happen to live in those cities, so I didn't need the bracelet. I believe that the studies may have been halted due to the media attention, but I will try to find the article for you to confirm. It was rather shocking.

Update:
Here's what the Brown University website says about thePolyHeme controversy:

Controversy

This Phase III study has caused controversy among bioethicists, however, due to the fact that those participating in the study never give consent. Northfield Laboratories, Inc., states that due to the nature of the injuries being treated, the patients are unable to give consent and the study is therefore being conducted under a special section under the Code of Federal Regulations. Section 50.24 allows for the exception of informed consent under circumstances of emergency research when the medical condition of the patient requires immediate care, available treatments are unsatisfactory, previous studies demonstrate the potential to provide a direct benefit to the patient, and the risks are reasonable given what is known of the patients’ medical condition. Opponents of this study point to the fact that patients never get a chance to refuse the experimental blood substitute as automatic grounds for its discontinuation. Also, this provision for emergency research without informed consent, which was passed in 1996, was used as means to launch a Baxter Healthcare study in 1998. The study, which was the first major study of artificial blood, was cut short with disastrous results as almost half of the 52 patients died. In order to avoid criticism, the hospitals conducting this study have mandatory community meetings to educate the residents about the trial. Despite the fact that most residents do not object to the study, only one in 57 objected at the Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois, some medical centers have devised ways to allow residents to opt out if they want. For instance, at the Denver Health Medical Center, people who object for religious or other reasons can wear a bracelet that indicates their preference. This method has come under scrutiny, however, with many ethicists, most significantly Vera Hassner Sharav, president and founder of the New York-based Alliance for Human Research Protection, claiming that the burden should not be placed on those who do not wish to participate in the study, but rather on those who will. While the bioethics community remains divided on the issue, the Food and Drug Administration stands by their decision to allow the Phase III trial. 

Nothfield Laboratories has also come under criticism for targeting minority and low income neighborhoods for the study. For instance, in San Diego, only ambulances working south of Interstate 8, a traditionally bad neighborhood, were equipped with Polyheme. Devon Price, the company’s spokesman, claimed that the company wanted to perform the study in neighborhoods with high rates of traumatic episodes. Opponents, however, point to the fact that in many neighborhoods with the study, ads were supposed to be posted in newspapers and on television indicating the nature of the study and ways to opt out, but never were. The only notice in San Diego was an obscure link on a UCSD website. Human rights activists also say that by performing the study in low income neighborhoods, the company is trying to protect itself because if anything does go wrong, the residents are not in a position financially to sue for damages.

In addition to patients’ rights problems, Northfield Laboratories has had to deal with some disturbing results as of late. In May 2005, researchers at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research performed an experiment comparing the safety and efficacy of resuscitative fluids in treating hemorrhaging lab rats. The results indicated that Polyheme may not be as safe as previously thought, with the data indicating that rats being treated with PolyHeme experienced higher mortality rates than those that received two commonly used solutions.
