The basis of informed consent for BMT patients. (1/198)

During recent decades the doctrine of informed consent has become a standard part of medical care as an expression of patients' rights to self-determination. In situations when only one treatment alternative exists for a potential cure, the extent of a patient's self-determination is constrained. Our hypothesis is that for patients considering a life-saving procedure such as bone marrow transplant (BMT), informed consent has little meaning as a basis for their right to self-determination. A longitudinal study of BMT patients was undertaken with four self-administered questionnaires. Questions centered around expectations, knowledge, anxiety and factors contributing to their decision to undergo treatment. Although the informed consent process made patients more knowledgeable about the treatment, their decision to consent was largely based on positive outcome expectations and on trust in the physician. Informed consent relieved their anxieties and increased their hopes for survival. Our conclusion was that the greatest value of the informed consent process lay in meeting the patients' emotional rather than cognitive needs. When their survival is at stake and BMT represents their only option, the patient's vulnerability puts a moral responsibility on the physician to respect the principle of beneficence while not sacrificing the patient's right to self-determination.  (+info)

Should we clone human beings? Cloning as a source of tissue for transplantation. (2/198)

The most publicly justifiable application of human cloning, if there is one at all, is to provide self-compatible cells or tissues for medical use, especially transplantation. Some have argued that this raises no new ethical issues above those raised by any form of embryo experimentation. I argue that this research is less morally problematic than other embryo research. Indeed, it is not merely morally permissible but morally required that we employ cloning to produce embryos or fetuses for the sake of providing cells, tissues or even organs for therapy, followed by abortion of the embryo or fetus.  (+info)

Should doctors intentionally do less than the best? (3/198)

The papers of Burley and Harris, and Draper and Chadwick, in this issue, raise a problem: what should doctors do when patients request an option which is not the best available? This commentary argues that doctors have a duty to offer that option which will result in the individual affected by that choice enjoying the highest level of wellbeing. Doctors can deviate from this duty and submaximise--bring about an outcome that is less than the best--only if there are good reasons to do so. The desire to have a child which is genetically related provides little, if any, reason to submaximise. The implication for cloning, preimplantation diagnosis and embryo transfer is that doctors should only produce a clone or transfer embryos expected to enjoy a level of wellbeing which is less than that enjoyed by other children the couple could have, if there is a good reason to employ that technology. This paper sketches what might constitute a good reason to submaximise.  (+info)

Genetic privacy: orthodoxy or oxymoron? (4/198)

In this paper we question whether the concept of "genetic privacy" is a contradiction in terms. And, if so, whether the implications of such a conclusion, inevitably impact on how society comes to perceive privacy and responsibility generally. Current law and ethical discourse place a high value on self-determination and the rights of individuals. In the medical sphere, the recognition of patient "rights" has resulted in health professionals being given clear duties of candour and frankness. Dilemmas arise, however, when patients decline to know relevant information or, knowing it, refuse to share it with others who may also need to know. This paper considers the notions of interconnectedness and responsibility to others which are brought to the fore in the genetic sphere and which challenge the primacy afforded to personal autonomy. It also explores the extent to which an individual's perceived moral obligations can or should be enforced.  (+info)

Genetically determined obesity in Prader-Willi syndrome: the ethics and legality of treatment. (5/198)

A central characteristic of people with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is an apparent insatiable appetite leading to severe overeating and the potential for marked obesity and associated serious health problems and premature death. This behaviour may be due to the effects of the genetic defect resulting from the chromosome 15 abnormalities associated with the syndrome. We examine the ethical and legal dilemmas that can arise in the care of people with PWS. A tension exists between a genetic deterministic perspective and that of individual choice. We conclude that the determination of the capacity of a person with PWS to make decisions about his/her eating behaviour and to control that behaviour is of particular importance in resolving this dilemma. If the person is found to lack capacity, the common law principles of acting in a person's "best interests" using the "least restrictive alternative" may be helpful. Allowing serious weight gain in the absence of careful consideration of these issues is an abdication of responsibility.  (+info)

Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions. (6/198)

The first part of this paper examines the practice of informed treatment decisions in the protective medical system in China today. The second part examines how health care professionals in China perceive and carry out their responsibilities when relaying information to vulnerable patients, based on the findings of an empirical study that I had undertaken to examine the moral experience of nurses in practice situations. In the Chinese medical ethics tradition, refinement [jing] in skills and sincerity [cheng] in relating to patients are two cardinal virtues that health care professionals are required to possess. This notion of absolute sincerity carries a strong sense of parental protectiveness. The empirical findings reveal that most nurses are ambivalent about telling the truth to patients. Truth-telling would become an insincere act if a patient were to lose hope and confidence in life after learning of his or her disease. In this system of protective medical care, it is arguable as to whose interests are being protected: the patient, the family or the hospital. I would suggest that the interests of the hospital and the family members who legitimately represent the patient's interests are being honoured, but at the expense of the patient's right to know.  (+info)

Responses by four Local Research Ethics Committees to submitted proposals. (7/198)

BACKGROUND: There is relatively little research concerning the processes whereby Local Research Ethics Committees discharge their responsibilities towards society, potential participants and investigators. OBJECTIVES: To examine the criteria used by LRECs in arriving at their decisions concerning approval of research protocols through an analysis of letters sent to investigators. DESIGN: Four LRECs each provided copies of 50 letters sent to investigators after their submitted proposals had been considered by the committees. These letters were subjected to a content analysis, in which specific comments and requests for additional information and changes in the protocols were recorded and compared. FINDINGS: Overall 24% of proposals were approved without request for changes or clarifications, but this varied by committee: one committee approved only 6% of proposals without change or clarification while the others ranged from 26% to 32%. The content analyses of responses indicated that they could be placed into four categories: (i) further information for the committee to aid in their deliberations; (ii) requests for changes to the design or justification for the design used; (iii) changes to the information sheets provided to potential participants; and (iv) changes to consent procedures. Of these, alterations to information sheets were the most common type of request. These four types of response could be seen as safeguarding the wellbeing of potential participants (the principle of non-maleficence), of promoting the scientific validity of the research (the principle of beneficence), and of enhancing the rights of potential participants (the principle of autonomy). CONCLUSIONS: The committees were consistent in the types of requests they made of investigators, which can be seen as attempts to protect participants' rights and ensure the scientific validity of studies. Without an analysis of the proposals sent to the committees, however, it is difficult to account for the variation in the requirements set by the committees before approval was given.  (+info)

Ancient Chinese medical ethics and the four principles of biomedical ethics. (8/198)

The four principles approach to biomedical ethics (4PBE) has, since the 1970s, been increasingly developed as a universal bioethics method. Despite its wide acceptance and popularity, the 4PBE has received many challenges to its cross-cultural plausibility. This paper first specifies the principles and characteristics of ancient Chinese medical ethics (ACME), then makes a comparison between ACME and the 4PBE with a view to testing out the 4PBE's cross-cultural plausibility when applied to one particular but very extensive and prominent cultural context. The result shows that the concepts of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice are clearly identifiable in ACME. Yet, being influenced by certain socio-cultural factors, those applying the 4PBE in Chinese society may tend to adopt a "beneficence-oriented", rather than an "autonomy-oriented" approach, which, in general, is dissimilar to the practice of contemporary Western bioethics, where "autonomy often triumphs".  (+info)

Beneficence and Respect for Autonomy, are relevant to this topic. However, we may select one particular aspect of the Principle of Beneficence as most relevant to this discussion about Quality of Life. In Chapter One, we limited the very broad idea of Beneficence to one of its implications, namely, as a moral principle that directs persons to help others in need. In medicine that need arises from deficits in health, and the actions are those that correct those deficits and support the patient. In this topic, we focus on another aspect of the Principle of Beneficence, namely, acting in ways that bring satisfaction to other persons. Many moral philosophers have taken satisfaction or happiness as a significant element of beneficence. We propose that it is particularly relevant to clinical decisions. One significant feature of all medical interventions is the aim to produce a state of satisfaction for the patient who has sought treatment. He or she is not only made well, but feels well. Quality of ...
In addition to having to consider unique aspects of informed consent in socially recognizable communities, many indigenous populations desire a rethinking of the concept of beneficence, that is, of doing no harm while maximizing potential benefits.8 In conventional views of research, an acceptable understanding of beneficence includes the notion that, although the research may not directly benefit study participants, it has significant potential to benefit society as a whole or to benefit some portion of the society (eg, people with a specific disease). Many indigenous populations have expressed dissatisfaction with this interpretation of beneficence and have required, instead, that research proposals contain concrete, well-defined plans for how the research findings will be used to directly benefit the community.9 In many instances, such requirements include involvement by researchers in the community even after the data-gathering phase of the research is complete. Thus, for example, a study ...

I can show you examples of proportional differences in beneficence that occur in this situation. A decision is made by the patient or surrogate speaking for the patient to terminate life-support and bring the patients suffering to an end. However, vital organ donation was also a decision by the patient/surrogate (Donation by Cardiac Death). While there is urgency to, after removal of the organ, transport and transplant it into the recipient (for the benefit of the recipient: better functioning transplant organ) there may not be the urgency to discontinue life support for the donor, despite the request, in order to get the procurement team in place and establish and maintain the best organ perfusion for its removal and transplant. The goal is do the best for the recipient by prompt transplant of the removed organ even though there may be a delay (and thus less best) in carrying out the wishes of the donor to promptly terminate life support. Thus, there is difference in beneficence applied to ...

Climate engineering (CE), the intentional modification of the climate in order to reduce the effects of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, is sometimes touted as a potential response to climate change. Increasing interest in the topic has led to proposals for empirical tests of hypothesized CE techniques, which raise serious ethical concerns. We propose three ethical guidelines for CE researchers, derived from the ethics literature on research with human and animal subjects, applicable in the event that CE research progresses beyond computer (...) modeling. The Principle of Respect requires that the scientific community secure the global publics consent, voiced through their governmental representatives, before beginning any empirical research. The Principle of Beneficence and Justice requires that researchers strive for a favorable risk-benefit ratio and a fair distribution of risks and anticipated benefits, all while protecting the basic rights of affected individuals. Finally, the ...

Correspondence: e-mail: [email protected] Science advances in time honoured ways. First, an investigator generates a hypothesis and then proposes experiments. Concurrently, ethics of the proposed research must also be considered, based on principles of beneficence. Do benefits outweigh risks, for society as well as for individuals? Will the research be conducted under the aegis of the appropriate oversight, Institutional Review Boards in the United States? Next follows the actual study, its publication and eventual validation through replication. Ideally, scientists, individuals, and society synchronize these time-honoured sequences. However, in reproductive medicine we are often accused of deviating. Promising clinical advances are said to be incorporated into practice without prior ethical deliberation. Conversely, others in society would, strictly on ethical grounds, proscribe many advances beneficial to patients. A considerable minority still disagrees with women exercising any ...
The NHSs four hour target for being treated in accident and emergency departments has dramatically changed the way unscheduled care services are run. It aims to improve the patient journey by emphasising the length of time it takes for a patient to be seen, assessed, treated, and disposed of by the emergency department. However, the effects of this target driven system have wide reaching implications throughout the hospital. I believe that ascribing too much importance to the four hour rule may, instead of benefiting patients, as is intended, actually harm them and thus contradicts the first ethical principle of medicine.. Hippocrates described the four ethical principles of medical practice in about 400 bc, a sort of moral compass for doctors even today. The first and most important of these is non-maleficence: above all else, do no harm. One would be hard pushed to find a clinician, even in 2008, who would disagree with such noble logic. Unfortunately, we are in danger of unwittingly ...
In saying that the business of medicine is not so different from many other forms of commerce where someone might offer a solution to what appears to be a problem. What we have learned from studying human interactions is that what is said, how and when it is said has a crucial impact on what the person with the problem decides to do.

As the story develops, it becomes clear that the Simpleton has complete faith in God - without doubts or questions or any need for elaborate proofs and explanations. The entire Torah opens with the utmost simplicity, without any philosophizing: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1 and see Rabbi Nachmans Wisdom #5). The Simpleton takes this at face value. He accepts that God is the source of everything in life. And since God is perfect goodness and beneficence, everything must be for good.. It is this faith that is the foundation of the Simpletons simchah. He knows that the life and circumstances God has given him are the very best possible - and he is overjoyed. To the outside world he may seem to be poor and struggling, but in fact hes the richest person on earth, because Who is rich? The one who is satisfied with his portion (Avot 4:1). Rather than lamenting what he lacks, the Simpleton looks at how much he has - and rejoices. He relishes his soup, meat ...

Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) combined with post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) is associated with an increased risk for complications. Here, we analyse whether IBR combined with PMRT is ethically acceptable. We employ normative analysis following reflective equilibrium and the principles of Beauchamp and Childress: non-maleficence, beneficence, autonomy, and justice. From the perspective of beneficence and non-maleficence, we can choose either IBR or PMRT according to documented risks and complications, delayed autologous breast reconstruction with corresponding benefits but less risk for complications, or even no reconstruction, which for some women, might be equally beneficial. In such a situation, given the level of severity associated with lacking a breast after mastectomy, IBR violates the principles of beneficence and non-maleficence. To deny an IBR in the context of PMRT does not violate the principle of autonomy as it is normally interpreted in the healthcare system, not even ...
Apart from the fundamental principle, there are specific precepts that articulate the meaning of respect in particular contexts. Preeminent in this regard are the precepts of beneficence and fairness. Beneficence is the demand that one render assistance to another person or persons when one can do so without serious harm to ones own well-being. Beneficence implies that subjects be protected as far as possible from untoward side-effects of research by exploring alternatives to a given procedure. The demand of beneficence has particular relevance to the IRB since its task is to determine whether proposed research sufficiently protects subjects from harm. The precept of fairness expresses the demand that the benefits and burdens of social life be equitably borne. No one should bear a disproportionate share of the burdens; no one should reap a disproportionate share of the benefits. Rather, burdens and benefits should be grounded in just procedures that recognize the rights of all. If there are ...
Central ethics-related tensions in the covert medication debate revolve around patient autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and duty to protect.25 Covertly medicating an autonomous individual is entirely unethical, since it clearly violates autonomy. Doubt arises in emergency and nonemergency settings when nonautonomous patients retain some measure of understanding and resist treatment. For those who lack capacity, the principle of autonomy is not violated, provided that the treatment is given in the patients best interests. The best interests clause is clearly intended to uphold the principle of beneficence and nonmaleficence; can moral justification be extended to include deceiving the patient? In the field of medicine, the practice of prescribing a placebo (thereby deceiving the patient) has been argued to be unethical, in that the ends (i.e., the patients sense of hope and the potential for improved outcomes) do not justify the means (i.e., deception).26 What if patients (or families) ...

I want to get a cat, because I like cats. I go to the pound, and find lots of cats. Which cat should I adopt? Im particularly attracted to an adorable little orange cat, but there is another cat that is rather unremarkable too. If I adopt the orange cat, it is likely that the unremarkable cat will not be adopted and euthanized. If I adopt the unremarkable cat, it is likely that the orange cat will be adopted out to someone else, since its really cute. Now either way, Im walking out of the pound with a cat, like Cathy will walk out of the IVF clinic with an embryo (in Cathys case the other embryos will be euthanized Im imagining). So which cat should I pick? I would be happy with EITHER cat, just as Cathy would be happy with ANY embryo.

In my cat scenario, it seems like the best outcome comes from adopting the unremarkable cat. If Id ...

In terms of medical ethics, autonomy relates to self governance or personal control. One of the main aims of implementing these surveillance monitoring devices is the promotion of increased independence. Most carers, whether relatives or paid staff, want the best for the person they support. Alongside doctors duties of beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice, respect for patient autonomy is invoked as a cardinal principle. The legal courts in various jurisdictions have confirmed the principle of respect for patient autonomy in the language of rights of self-determination. This is not merely viewed as a a rejection of a paternalistic tradition of doctor knows best, but includes differing philosophical positions including those of Kant..

There is a long-running and vigorous debate over ethical concerns regarding circumcision, particularly neonatal circumcision for reasons other than intended direct medical benefit. There are three parties involved in the decision to circumcise a minor: the minor as the patient, the parents (or other guardians) and the physician. The physician is bound under the ethical principles of beneficence (promoting well-being) and non-maleficence (first, do no harm), and so is charged with the responsibility to promote the best interests of the patient while minimizing unnecessary harms. Those involved must weigh the factors of what is in the best interest of the minor against the potential harms of the procedure.[9]. With a newborn involved, the decision is made more complex due to the principles of respect for autonomy and consent, as a newborn cannot understand or engage in a logical discussion of his own values and best interests.[8][9] A mentally more mature child can understand the issues involved ...

Society: There is little doubt that society as a whole benefits from trainee care. By allowing physicians in training to provide direct patient care society is guaranteeing that everyone will have access to experienced, well educated physicians. Unless we all conspire to kill and maim the people under our care, there is little risk of trainees violating the values of Beneficence and Non-Maleficence, as pertains to society itself. And short of continuing training despite societys demanding that we stop, it would be hard to see how medical training would violate societys right to Self-Determination. However, Distributive Justice is a little trickier. The benefits and harms of trainee care should be distributed equally across the entire country and through all strata of society and yet data suggest that people who receive care at training institutions are more likely to have Medicaid (public insurance intended for those who cannot otherwise afford medical care) and be non-white.

The major ethical principles that must be considered when formulating policies for HIV counseling and testing include respect for autonomy, confidentiality, justice, protection of vulnerable individuals, and beneficence to both the woman tested and, if she is pregnant, to her newborn as well. Individuals offering testing need to be mindful not only of the benefits of testing but also its potential risks because, if a womans test result is positive, she faces the possibility of being ostracized by her family, friends, and community or being subjected to intimate partner violence. In addition, although the overt stigma of HIV infection has been reduced over the past 20 years, the potential for job discrimination, loss of health insurance, and loss of housing still exists. Over time, three potential strategies for HIV testing have been considered by public health and public policy officials: 1) universal testing with patient notification and right of refusal, also called opt-out testing; 2) ...

Whole-genome analysis of pre-implantation embryos provides information about not only the disorder tested for, but the whole genomic make-up of the embryo. This not only allows for improved selection, but also provides information on genetic variants that are associated with several non-health-related traits. These prospects raise difficult ethical questions. Some people may see this as the slippery slope towards the designer child (REF. 136), whereas a different perspective is that it enables prospective parents and professionals to take into account the welfare of the future child. Following the principle of procreative beneficence, it is common practice to rank embryos and select the embryo with the highest chance of resulting in a healthy individual137.
