Empiricism enjoyed sporadic continuing popularity in later centuries up to the nineteenth. (From Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, 2d ed, p186; Dr. James H.

Life devoid of value.(1/1959)


John Collins Warren and his act of conscience: a brief narrative of the trial and triumph of a great surgeon. (2/1959)

On examination of the correspondence among the principals involved, as well as the original patent application being prepared by Morton, it has become possible to reconstruct some of the remarkable details attending the first use of ether anesthesia at the Massachusetts General Hos pital in the autumn of 1846. At the time that Warren invited Morton to demonstrate the use of his "ethereal vapor" for anesthesia in a minor operation on Oct. 16, 1846, the exact chemical composition of the agent used was being held secret by Morton; Warren was clearly disturbed by this unethical use of a secret "nostrum." When the time arrived 3 weeks later for its possible use for a serious "capital" operation, Warren employed a simple stratagem of public confrontation to discover from Morton the true nature of the substance to be used. On being informed that it was pure unadulterated sulfuric ether, not some mysterious new discovery labeled "Letheon," Warren gave approval for its first use in a "capital" operation (low thigh amputation) on Nov. 7, 1846. Despite this revelation to the immediate participants, a veil of secrecy continued to surround the substance for many months, an anomalous situation evidently traceable to Morton's desire for personal reward from the discovery. It was this matter of secrecy, rather than priority for its discovery, that surrounded the early use of ether anesthesia with controversy and recrimination both in this country and abroad.  (+info)

Medical practice: defendants and prisoners. (3/1959)

It is argued in this paper that a doctor cannot serve two masters. The work of the prison medical officer is examined and it is shown that his dual allegiance to the state and to those individuals who are under his care results in activities which largely favour the former. The World Health Organisation prescribes a system of health ethics which indicates, in qualitative terms, the responsibility of each state for health provisions. In contrast, the World Medical Association acts as both promulgator and guardian of a code of medical ethics which determines the responsibilities of the doctor to his patient. In the historical sense medical practitioners have always emphasized the sanctity of the relationship with their patients and the doctor's role as an expert witness is shown to have centered around this bond. The development of medical services in prisons has focused more on the partnership between doctor and institution. Imprisonment in itself could be seen as prejudicial to health as are disciplinary methods which are more obviously detrimental. The involvement of medical practitioners in such procedures is discussed in the light of their role as the prisoner's personal physician.  (+info)

The place of medicine in the American prison: ethical issues in the treatment of offenders. (4/1959)

In Britain doctors and others concerned with the treatment of offenders in prison may consult the Butler Report (see Focus, pp 157) and specialist journals, but these sources are concerned with the system in Britain only. In America the situation is different, both in organization and in certain attitudes. Dr Peter L Sissons has therefore provided a companion article to that of Dr Paul Bowden (page 163) describing the various medical issues in prisons. The main difference between the treatment of offenders in prisons in America and in Britain lies in the nature of the federal system which means that each state may operate a different system in a variety of prisons and prison medical services are as various. Nationally, the prison systems are 'structured to treat and cure the offender'. Therefore it follows that the prison medical officer is only one of the professionals concerned with this 'cure' of the offender. This principle also applies to any form of research: medical research in prisons is part of a programme which covers a wide field of social and judicial research. The prison medical officer (where there is one) has of course to look after sick prisoners, and the American idea of 'cure' is also expressed in the need for more corrective surgery where, for example, it is necessary to remove physical impediments to social rehabilitation. But a doctor is only found on the staff of those institutions which are large: in the smaller prisons there may be only first-aid facilities, and no specially appointed doctor in the community. Moreover medicines are often dispensed by medical auxiliaries who are sometimes prisoners themselves. Finally, in America prisoners are regularly invited to volunteer as subjects for medical and social research for which they are paid. In short, although it is hoped to 'cure' a prisoner he is a criminal first and a patient second.  (+info)

Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service. (5/1959)

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

The case for a statutory 'definition of death'. (6/1959)

Karen Quinlan, the American girl who has lain in deep coma for many months, is still 'alive', that is to say, her heart is still beating and brain death has not occurred. However, several other cases have raised difficult issues about the time of death. Dr Skegg argues that there is a case for a legal definition of death enshrined in statutory form. He suggests that many of the objections to a statutory provision on death are misplaced, and that a statute concerning the occurrence of death could remove all doubts in the minds of both doctors and public as to whether a 'beating heart cadaver' was dead or alive for legal purposes.  (+info)

The spouse as a kidney donor: ethically sound? (7/1959)

A shortage of cadaver donor organs requires transplant units to examine all possible alternatives. Transplantation from living donors accounts for only approximately 10% of kidney transplants in the UK. Recent studies have shown that the results of kidney transplantation between spouses are at least as good as those of well-matched cadaver organs, but very few transplants of this type have been performed in this country so far. As part of the assessment process, the proposed donor and recipient are required to provide written statements about the issues. We reproduce here the personal statements made by one of our patients and his wife: we believe that the statements support our contention that spousal transplantation is ethically justifiable and should be more widely available. We report our early experience in Bristol with seven kidney transplants from spousal donors and we encourage other renal units in this country and elsewhere to consider this method of improving the prospects of kidney transplantation for their patients.  (+info)

The duty to recontact: attitudes of genetics service providers. (8/1959)

The term "duty to recontact" refers to the possible ethical and/or legal obligation of genetics service providers (GSPs) to recontact former patients about advances in research that might be relevant to them. Although currently this practice is not part of standard care, some argue that such an obligation may be established in the future. Little information is available, however, on the implications of this requirement, from the point of view of GSPs. To explore the opinions of genetics professionals on this issue, we sent a self-administered questionnaire to 1,000 randomly selected U.S. and Canadian members of the American Society of Human Genetics. We received 252 completed questionnaires. The major categories of respondents were physician geneticist (41%), Ph.D. geneticist (30%), and genetic counselor (18%); 72% of the total stated that they see patients. Respondents indicated that responsibility for staying in contact should be shared between health professionals and patients. Respondents were divided about whether recontacting patients should be the standard of care: 46% answered yes, 43% answered no, and 11% did not know. Those answering yes included 44% of physician geneticists, 53% of Ph.D. geneticists, and 31% of genetic counselors; answers were statistically independent of position or country of practice but were dependent on whether the respondent sees patients (43% answered yes) or not (54% answered yes). There also was a lack of consensus about the possible benefits and burdens of recontacting patients and about various alternative methods of informing patients about research advances. Analysis of qualitative data suggested that most respondents consider recontacting patients an ethically desirable, but not feasible, goal. Points to consider in the future development of guidelines for practice are presented.  (+info)

Over the holidays of July 4, 1981, I wrote the outline and summary for my first book,Biblical/Medical Ethics. Over the next 3 years, I searched book lists, bibliographies, journals, periodicals, and asked many people for writings on medical ethics by Christians.. Roman Catholics had the best material, having a tradition in medical ethics. Articles and books by Protestants (other than the subject of abortion) were scarce. And, unfortunately, what had been written was more secular than Christian (Biblical).. Mostly, I took the Roman Catholic principles which had been produced by their melding of Scripture, tradition, and Church authority, tested them by Biblical theology and ethics, and thereby developed Biblical medical ethics. Over these 16 years have come four books, ten years of the Journal of Biblical Ethics in Medicine, six years of an AIDS newsletter, eight years of this Reflections, and various articles in other publications..

Todays counseling professionals practice in an increasingly complex world. Difficult situations can arise in any counseling setting, and when they do, counselors are expected to engage in a carefully considered ethical decision-making process per the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics.. In 1996 Holly Forester-Miller, Ph.D. and Thomas E. Davis, Ph.D. collaborated with the American Counseling Association to develop such a process, ultimately publishing a white paper titled, Practitioners Guide to Ethical Decision Making. This frequently cited professional resource has served as a guide for countless counseling professionals over the years.. We are happy to announce that Forester-Miller and Davis have once again partnered with ACA to update the white paper. The 2016 version of Practitioners Guide to Ethical Decision Making is now available as a downloadable/printable PDF.. Access the white paper PDF here (926 KB).. Questions or comments?

Any selection of recent advances in medical ethics will be somewhat arbitrary, but I took two steps to diminish this. Firstly, I selected topics featured in theme issues of major journals within the past two years. Of course, journals are inevitably journalistic about covering hot topics-especially where views are passionate and polarised. Secondly, to identify key articles, I searched the Science Citation Index, consulted with key informants, and attended international meetings. Although citation counts reflect influence on other publications, they may not reflect the clinical application of an idea.. I have included both advances in medical ethics and advances in medicine and science with enormous ethical ramifications. The topics span clinical medicine (end of life care and medical error), healthcare management (priority setting), science (biotechnology), and education (of medical ethics).. A discussion of common medical ethics topics for clinical readers can be found in the Canadian ...

Mediation Ethics is a groundbreaking text that offers conflict resolution professionals a much-needed resource for traversing the often disorienting landscape of ethical decision making. Edited by mediation expert Ellen Waldman, the book is filled with illustrative case studies and authoritative commentaries by mediation specialists that offer insight for handling ethical challenges with clarity and deliberateness. Waldman begins with an introductory discussion on mediations underlying values, its regulatory codes, and emerging models of practice. Subsequent chapters treat ethical dilemmas known to vex even the most experienced practitioner: power imbalance, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, attorney misconduct, cross-cultural conflict, and more. In each chapter, Waldman analyzes the competing values at stake and introduces a challenging case, which is followed by commentaries by leading mediation scholars who discuss how they would handle the case and why. Waldman concludes each chapter ...
Delivering news to patients and their families can lead to emotionally charged conversations that are difficult for trainees to feel comfortable or effective in. Trisomy 21 (T21), or Down syndrome, is the most common viable chromosomal anomaly. Although prenatal screening exists, over 80% of T21 diagnoses continue to be made postnatally to unsuspecting parents who report a desire for better communication from healthcare professionals when they first receive the news of their childs diagnosis.16 To better equip trainees to thoughtfully and professionally deliver a diagnosis of T21, we have designed a workshop founded on the principles of Scenario Oriented Learning in Ethics (SOLE) which introduces a framework combining current evidence on communicating life altering news with stated parent preferences. During the workshop, trainees will have the opportunity to practice using the provided communication framework with a standardized patient trained as a new mother. By personally working through a ...
This chapter outlines a specific interpretation of information ethics (IE) as an e-nvironmental ethics. In Section 4.1, I introduce the foundationalist problem in computer ethics (CE). In Section 4.2, I argue that the ethical questions prompted by ICTs put classic macroethics under pressure. In Section 4.3, I propose a model of IE as a macroethics that can deal with ICT-related ethical problems better than other macroethics; and, in Section 4.4, I argue that IE can provide the theoretical foundation for CE. In Section 4.5, I outline the patient-oriented, ontocentric nature of IE. In Section 4.6, I make explicit the four ethical principles supported by IE as a macroethics. In Section 4.7, I defend the view that IE counts as a macroethics rather than a microethics and compare it to other approaches. In Section 4.8, I further clarify the nature of IE as a macroethics by analysing three applications of IE.
Rogers, a general practitioner, deplores what he perceives as an abandonment by British physicians of general ethical standards as established by the General Medical Council (GMC), in favor of a situational ethic. He attributes this change to the establishment of the National Health Service (NHS) and to the effects of an increasingly permissive society. Physicians have been turned into public servants involved in public controversies on the social issues of medical practice, to the detriment of their relationships with their patients and colleagues. Rogers urges the public and the GMC to debate these changes and to consider the advantages of returning to the guidance of traditional ethics. (KIE abstract) ...

In 2016, following its report which looked at the ethical issues associated with genome editing more broadly (e.g., including food), the Nuffield Council of Bioethics formed a working group to examine ethical questions relating to the attempted influence of inherited characteristics in humans, in the light of the likely impact of genome editing technologies. After 2 years of work, the working party released its report titled Genome editing and human reproduction.. The first two sections of the report contextualise HGE within its immediate potential role as a reproductive technology used by individuals, its possible future applications and the social context in which those applications might evolve.. The report states that genome editing in the context of reproduction must be situated against a background of increased genetic knowledge informing reproductive options. Increased knowledge about genetic differences has created an epistemic shift revealing previous dichotomies between states of ...

As a practicing health care provider, it is not enough to be technically competent, although it is, admittedly, a critical component of your job. You must balance technical skill (technology) with correct professional demeanor (ethical or right behavior) and sensitivity to the patients needs (caring). While technical skills give you the baseline competency that you need, a knowledge of ethical and legal issues in health care enables you to make more informed health care decisions with better understanding of the basis for such actions. With conviction in your own actions, you will not only feel more confident, but you will project confidence to your patients, an essential element in health care provider-patient relationships.. Finally, knowledge of legal considerations related to health care will spare you from unwittingly committing acts that could have legal repercussions (a lawsuit) for the hospital or physician you serve and adverse consequences to your career.. ...

Medical ethics is one of the most popular subjects of discussion today. It is prominently featured in the medical literature, and several new journals are exclusively devoted to it. Numerous regional and national conferences concerned with various aspects of biomedical ethics occur with great regularity and high frequency. The press and media are also devoting major attention to this subject.. A whole new medical ethics vocabulary has arisen, some of which adds confusion where clarity is needed. Even the term medical ethics is difficult to define. One simplistic but concise approach is to say that the physician determines what is possible, the attorney decides what is permissible, and the ethicist suggests what is proper.. A classic example where confusion in terminology exists is the living will. Does anyone write a will when he/she is not alive? Is there a difference between a living will and a dying will? Even the English usage is incorrect. The will is not alive or dead. It is the person ...
Introduction. 3. Discuss the view that only a religious ethic can provide an acceptable basis for medical ethics. Medical ethics concerns many areas of ethical debate. Including such controversial issues such as euthanasia, abortion and human cloning, medical ethics sparks lively debates. The issue of abortion is a very relevant and controversial issue. There are opposition and supporters from both a religious ethical background and a non-religious ethical background. Those who come from a Christian ethical background tend to have a similar argument, that of the sanctity of life. Roman Catholics oppose abortion using the Christian ethical theory of Natural Law. Abortion would be going against natural law as it interferes with Gods will. Abortion is right in no circumstances, in other words it is intrinsically evil, as it involves the murder of an innocent life. Protestants do, in principle, oppose abortion on the ground that murder is wrong, as stated in the bible; Thou shalt not kill ...
Medical ethics has had a rich and complex history over the past 40 years. It has been transformed from a rather clear and straightforward set of rules and attitudes, shaped largely by the medical profession itself, into a major field of academic and social inquiry. Contemporary work in medical ethics can be divided into three parts: ethical analysis and arguments of large-scale issues in science, practice and policy (such as consideration of the ethical issues concerning cloning or resource allocation); theoretical inquiry into the foundations of medical ethics; and practical analysis of particular dilemmas in clinical practice. This last area in medical ethics is normally referred to as clinical ethics, and is in many respects the most important and vibrant part of medical ethics today. It lives through its intimate connection with clinical practice and medical and healthcare education, the ways in which suggestions made by practitioners of clinical ethics are rapidly tested in clinical ...
This website is established to promote medical ethics that are soundly rooted in Biblical truth. We stand with the proclamation of the Bible that All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17).. The Westminster Confession of Faith amplifies this total sufficiency of Scripture when it states that The whole counsel of God, concerning all things necessary for His own glory, mans salvation, faith, and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture… (Chapter 1.6.).. The centerpiece of this website is the Journal of Biblical Ethics in Medicine, founded in 1987 (and published through 1994) by three physicians who believed (and still do) that no other publication on medical ethical issues is Biblically sound and congruent. We establish this ...
Until recently, philosophers took little interest in medical practice or physicians codes of ethics. Since the 1960s, however, they have joined physicians, theologians, and lawyers in founding journals, research centers, hospital and medical school committees, departments, programs, and special degrees in medical ethics, primarily in North America but increasingly world-wide. This exponential growth invites differentiation of medical ethics (primarily, physician-centered) and health care ethics (including nurses and other healthcare providers), clinical ethics (focused on hospital case decisions with the aid of diverse committees and consultants), and bioethics (including general issues of reproduction, fair distribution of organs and other scarce life-saving resources, and protection of the biosphere). Principal topics in medical ethics include: physicians paternalistic deceptions and violations of patient confidentiality; the rights of patients or their surrogates to refuse life-sustaining ...

Special Focus. Movement to Explore Bioethical Issues. An extraordinary movement is under way to put together the most conscientious thinking in the nation on the many moral and ethical issues raised by advances in the medical and biological sciences. The object is to develop a set of commonly accepted principles to guide those responsible for making life and death decisions-as some put it, to guide man in playing God. Problems in medical ethics are not new but in recent years they have taken on a character and dimension undreamed of in the past. Doctors have always had to weigh the benefits of certain medications against their hazards. But never before have the options signified such fateful consequences for the individual and for society.. Major new developments in the biological and medical sciences call for moral and ethical decisions for which there are few precedents. They include fertilization of human egg cells in the laboratory; determination of certain genetic characteristics, ...

Medical ethics is an indispensible and challenging aspect of clinical practice. This is particularly prominent in the field of organ transplantation. In this paper, initially, a clinical case with brain death that ended up as an organ donor will be presented. Following the presentation, important moral challenges which initially formed medical ethics and some highlights of it in organ transplantation will be discussed in detail. The impact of complex modern influential factors that might interfere with the practice of medical ethics in this field such as patients vulnerability, financial temptations, and legal regulations will be also dealt with. Finally, we shall propose practical guidelines aiming at improving the practice of medical ethics in the emerging issue of organ transplantation ...

The qualitative outcomes are the key themes from the individual reflections. A main outcome was increased understanding of what health equity means, how it differs from equality, and how it impacts on health disparities. A key theme was an increased understanding of applied meaning of the four pillars of medical ethics through the lens of this historical narrative. Students were able to empathize with Ms. Henrietta Lacks beliefs and values and contrast these with the physician bias on what was best for her care. This awareness allowed students to reflect on how they wanted to interact with patients in the future. Other key themes were reinforcement of patient interviewing skills, acknowledgment of the propensity for medical student/physician unconscious biases and its overall impact on healthcare, and lessons learned from past historical treatment of socially constructed patients and the development of a physicians integrity to enhance present-day doctor/patient encounters ...

The question arises as to how the average person can smell (suspect without documentation) that some act or behavior of an individual or individuals is unethical. An often used expression is: It smells fishy to me. Is everything which determines what we suspect really set down in the past by our ethics education through reading or listening to the views of philosophers, ethicists, our religious or grade-school teachers or parents or the outcomes of our own experiences? On the other hand, is what smells unethical simply based on individual personal preferences and not some theory or rule developed by others. Then again, perhaps there is some genetically constructed mechanism or instinct which provides every individual with the capacity to establish that suspicion about what might be an ethical bad and not an ethical good. An important point to consider is whether you can fully explain the reason that the action smells unethical. If you cant, then maybe this would point to the ...

Others consider that company ethics insurance policies are primarily rooted in utilitarian considerations, and that theyre primarily to restrict the companys authorized legal responsibility, or to curry public favour by giving the appearance of being a great company citizen.. They may very well be approached from the angle of regulation,philosophy,theology or social sciences.During this era an try was made by business managers,academics and the federal government to link the concepts of ethical accountability and resolution- making inside a corporation.. The arguments ...
1. Ethical dilemmas in the practice of health care continue to proliferate and receive increasing attention from members of the health care profession, ethicists, policy makers, and the general public as health care consumers. In this course we will examine a number of ethical issues that arise in the context of contemporary medical practice and research by analyzing articles and decision scenarios. Topics to be covered typically include the physician-patient relationship; informed consent; medical experimentation; termination of treatment; genetics; reproductive technologies; euthanasia; resource allocation; and health care reform. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to identify and analyze different philosophical approaches to selected issues in medical ethics; have gained insight into how to read and critically interpret philosophical arguments; and have developed skills that will enable them to think clearly about ethical questions as future or current health care ...
