... 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...

Adafruit customer service forums View topic - Ethics of kit making. Ethics of kit making Moderators: adafruit support bill, adafruit. Ethics of kit making by solexious on Tue Oct 09, 2012 12:22 am Hello all, So I'm fairly cautious when it comes to making and selling kits, mostly in that I'm worried about people thinking I have copied or stolen their idea and monopolised on it. 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. Re: Ethics of kit making by adafruit support mike on Tue Oct 09, 2012 4:00 pm When you're dealing with Open Hardware, that question has a clear and specific answer: you're free to use the design however you want, which includes making and selling flat-out copies of the original. if at the time of conception or design you don't know about previo...

← 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.

WASHINGTON The House ethics committee said Wednesday it will put off for now an expanded investigation into whether Rep. or his representatives tried to buy President Barack Obama's former Senate seat. The committee revealed that the deferred investigation now includes allegations that Jackson, a Democrat, improperly used his staff in Washington and Chicago to mount a public campaign to secure the Senate seat. Jackson's alleged use of staff was in a report by the new Office of Congressional Ethics, which reviews potential ethical violations by House members and staff and refers cases to the ethics committee of five Democrats and five Republicans.

Insufficient Research and Community Consultation. The rapid growth of the coal seam gas CSG industry — despite broad public opposition and proven risks — is bringing the gap between policy and public will into stark relief. The mounting evidence about risks from CSG mining; A lack of peer reviewed research into the impacts of CSG mining in an Australian context; and Insufficient community consultation. As campaigns around the country raise awareness about CSG and approvals, the gap between policy and public will is increasingly clear. Further, in May 2011, the NSW minister Duncan Gay told parliament: “The government provides a number of attractive incentives to encourage exploration, development and utilisation of the coal seam gas industry in New South Wales.”. Development can also require state environmental approval. However since 2005 this could be approved under Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, under which the Minister for Planning could deem development to be of ‘state signi...

... 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 ...

To large degree, the ones who DO have insurance subsidize those who do not, by which I mean that I come out enough ahead on those that do reimburse that I can give a lot of care for which I will never see a dime. I may have to pay $500 to acquire drug X, yet Medicaid may only pay $425 to reimburse me, so I have already lost money, and that doesn't even account for the 200-day delay in reimbursement that Medicaid has I have to be out the cost of the dr...

Institutional Review Boards and Open Access Publishing. The New York Times has an article about whether the rules for Human Subjects protection, enforced by Institutional Review Boards, have in fact gone overboard in terms of onerous regulations that protect no one : As Ethics Panels Expand Grip, No Field Is Off Limits By PATRICIA COHEN Ever since the gross mistreatment of poor black men in the Tuskegee Syphilis Study came to light three decades ago, the federal government has required ethics panels to protect people from being used as human lab rats in biomedical studies.

... Wayne Dolcefino, The Burzynski Clinic and the Institutional Review Board by David April 22, 2013. The email below is a response and summary to a phone conversation I had with Wayne Dolcefino just before Easter, on the 26th March 2013. We discussed the details of a recent inspection of by the FDA of the IRB Institutional Review Board who are responsible for assessing patient suitability for protocol acceptance at the Burzynski Clinic. As I told you on the phone the observation notes referred to are not related to any FDA inspection of the Burzynski clinic. Burzynski and his clinic, and the research institute. Burzynski and his clinic. The IRB has a director, and he does not work for Dr.Burzynski. Sometimes reasonable people may disagree on a a technical issue that will be resolved.That is why responsible people probably would wait until the IRB or the hundreds of other recipients respond and see if the FDA is satisfied. As I am sure you know the FDA sends out hundreds of observation notes, a way to check ...

(1/257) Do case studies mislead about the nature of reality?

This paper attempts a partial, critical look at the construction and use of case studies in ethics education. It argues that the authors and users of case studies are often insufficiently aware of the literary nature of these artefacts: this may lead to some confusion between fiction and reality. Issues of the nature of the genre, the fictional, story-constructing aspect of case studies, the nature of authorship, and the purposes and uses of case studies as "texts" are outlined and discussed. The paper concludes with some critical questions that can be applied to the construction and use of case studies in the light of the foregoing analysis.  (+info)

(2/257) Indigenous peoples and the morality of the Human Genome Diversity Project.

In addition to the aim of mapping and sequencing one human's genome, the Human Genome Project also intends to characterise the genetic diversity of the world's peoples. The Human Genome Diversity Project raises political, economic and ethical issues. These intersect clearly when the genomes under study are those of indigenous peoples who are already subject to serious economic, legal and/or social disadvantage and discrimination. The fact that some individuals associated with the project have made dismissive comments about indigenous peoples has confused rather than illuminated the deeper issues involved, as well as causing much antagonism among indigenous peoples. There are more serious ethical issues raised by the project for all geneticists, including those who are sympathetic to the problems of indigenous peoples. With particular attention to the history and attitudes of Australian indigenous peoples, we argue that the Human Genome Diversity Project can only proceed if those who further its objectives simultaneously: respect the cultural beliefs of indigenous peoples; publicly support the efforts of indigenous peoples to achieve respect and equality; express respect by a rigorous understanding of the meaning of equitable negotiation of consent, and ensure that both immediate and long term economic benefits from the research flow back to the groups taking part.  (+info)

(3/257) Role conflict and confidentiality in multidisciplinary athlete support programmes.

As medical and scientific staff have increasingly been called upon to provide multidisciplinary support to elite performers the potential for ethical, professional, and legal conflicts has also increased. Although this has been recognised, little guidance has been provided to help resolve such conflicts. This paper identifies key issues in the provision of effective support and specifically addresses the roles of medical and scientific staff and their relations to coaches and performers. An athlete charter is presented that has successfully been used to resolve ethical conflicts and clarify the lines of communication, confidentiality, and responsibility within a national governing body.  (+info)

(4/257) Ethical requirements for occupational health research--compliance arrangements for a single company in relation to a recent major nuclear industry study.

The media coverage given to occupational health studies in the field of ionizing radiation has, on occasion, been the cause of very real distress to radiation workers and their families. In response to this situation the Chief Medical Officers of the major UK nuclear companies developed an ethical policy for future involvement in research, based on the duty of care which researchers owe to a key customer of such studies: the worker. The policy consists of four principal elements: medical confidentiality; worker information; worker consent and the guarantee of the availability to the workers of pre-publication knowledge of the results. The policy issued in 1991/92 has achieved growing acceptance among researchers and medical journals, though the medical officers involved have been aware of some scepticism, particularly in relation to the practicalities of the dissemination of pre-publication information. The Record Linkage Study published in November 1997 marked a major piece of research work involving data from 120,000 radiation workers that had been carried out since the development of the policy. This paper reports on the successful compliance arrangements to meet the ethical requirements of that study within a single UK nuclear company, and is published to demonstrate that with commitment from researchers, the journal and occupational health staff such ethical requirements, and particularly the need for pre-publication information can be met in full.  (+info)

(5/257) Withholding/withdrawing treatment from neonates: legislation and official guidelines across Europe.

Representatives from eight European countries compared the legal, ethical and professional settings within which decision making for neonates takes place. When it comes to limiting treatment there is general agreement across all countries that overly aggressive treatment is to be discouraged. Nevertheless, strong emphasis has been placed on the need for compassionate care even where cure is not possible. Where a child will die irrespective of medical intervention, there is widespread acceptance of the practice of limiting aggressive treatment or alleviating suffering even if death may be hastened as a result. Where the infant could be saved but the future outlook is bleak there is more debate, but only two countries have tested the courts with such cases. When it comes to the active intentional ending of life, the legal position is standard across Europe; it is prohibited. However, recognising those intractable situations where death may be lingering and unpleasant, Dutch paediatricians have reported that they do sometimes assist babies to die with parental consent. Two cases have been tried through the courts and recent official recommendations have set out standards by which such actions may be assessed.  (+info)

(6/257) 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)

(7/257) Ethical considerations in international HIV vaccine trials: summary of a consultative process conducted by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

Research that is initiated, designed or funded by sponsor agencies based in countries with relatively high social and economic development, and conducted in countries that are relatively less developed, gives rise to many important ethical challenges. Although clinical trials of HIV vaccines began ten years ago in the US and Europe, an increasing number of trials are now being conducted or planned in other countries, including several that are considered "developing" countries. Safeguarding the rights and welfare of individuals participating as research subjects in developing countries is a priority. In September, 1997, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) embarked on a process of international consultation; its purpose was further to define the important ethical issues and to formulate guidance that might facilitate the ethical design and conduct of HIV vaccine trials in international contexts. This paper summarises the major outcomes of the UNAIDS consultative process.  (+info)

(8/257) Death--whose decision? Euthanasia and the terminally ill.

In Australia and Oregon, USA, legislation to permit statutory sanctioned physician-assisted dying was enacted. However, opponents, many of whom held strong religious views, were successful with repeal in Australia. Similar opposition in Oregon was formidable, but ultimately lost in a 60-40% vote reaffirming physician-assisted dying. This paper examines the human dilemma which arises when technological advances in end-of-life medicine conflict with traditional and religious sanctity-of-life values. Society places high value on personal autonomy, particularly in the United States. We compare the potential for inherent contradictions and arbitrary decisions where patient autonomy is either permitted or forbidden. The broader implications for human experience resulting from new legislation in both Australia and Oregon are discussed. We conclude that allowing autonomy for the terminally ill, within circumscribed options, results in fewer ethical contradictions and greater preservation of dignity.  (+info)


Do meat eater question their ethics around vegetarians?


(thanks maggie for inspiring this question)

I sometimes feel that I need to be careful how I tell people that I am vegan, and when they ask why, I always wonder if I will get "attacked" because of it.  

All vegetarians and vegans at some point wonder why meat eaters can be aggressive towards vegetarians/vegans.

Do they question their ethics around us, therefore lash out?  Do they feel that we are judging their ethics?

Do you judge their ethics?
----------

very good and pointed question....just why do these "sub-species" feel so threatened by one another? It looks to me as though you've already got the answer pretty well figured out....and that there's really no answer. I will say this: the jury is still NOT out as to which is the most healthy diet and I suspect that's one of the fear-factors. Vegans seem to be stigmatized as an eating disorder. If people can just make it to be more a personal preference than anything else, such as body art, then I bet everything would be cool.


I will add this, though.You MUST be more careful to get a number of the essential nutrients which occur mainly in meat. Soy protein is not necessarily the best - after all - unless it has been fermented. If not fermented - well, there's a not too well-known study out "there" which was conducted by the good o'l FDA a couple decades ago which concluded that soy (at least unfermented soy) tends to atrophy the thyroid. This is NOT a good thing. And without soy, where will you get your protein as a vegan? Other of the B complex vitamins may be deficient. You just need to be certain to take a GOOD daily multi-nutrient supplement with EACH meal to keep your nutri-bases covered. Maybe you should consider lowering a couple restrictions and allow yourself some fish and cheese at least. Miso is great.....sushi, too, if quality is superior. Kelp helps with the thyroid issues, a little. If you can handle eggs, then that would really resolve alot of your issues - they're, when prepared correctly, one of the very most complete foods available.
Take care of that body God gave you. It's really quite awesome!


What is your opinion on the ethics of cancer treatments?


From the first cancer treatments by William Coley of injecting strep throat bacteria into a patient's body (erysipelas) to modern day treatments with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, what is your opinion on the ethics of these treatments, and which one do you think is the most effective?
----------

i think as long as it is explained to the patient, it is their choice to choose whatever treatment they and their doctor think is the best.

Why ask a veggie or vegan a question about ethics?


After all to have any ethics that count you have to be able to think about other people and their views. Clearly not what most veggies are cappable of doing. Especially those who set themselves up to be "leaders" of the community after all they are mostly incapable of informed open debate and immediately get up their selves when you comment about "the lifestyle"

Help with the ethics of trimming trees and plants?


From what I've been told, my girlfriend has a few plants that seem to be meeting the criteria for needing to be trimmed.

My girlfriend is very hesitant to do this, fearing that to the plant, it's like decapitation or losing a limb. Can someone explain why it is, or is not like this. Do you think plants mind? Or do you think it's like the equivalent of trimming nails or hair--that it encourages healthier growth and isn't at all harmful?

Any thoughts, experience and/or links to relevant articles would be greatly appreciated.

Also, how do you determine where to cut?
----------

I've had my plants for years and years, I'm attached to them.  

I don't really trim my plans, I remove the dead leaves.  I like them wild :)  
But it does depend on the plant.  If you cut the tops off of evergreen trees, they die.

Why not get her a book on plants for valentines day!


Can I start my own religion based on the ethics of veganism?


That way I can't be teased by meat eaters of fired from my job.

Only if you're in prison - they allow everyone to make up their own religion there.
