Ethical Considerations In End-Of-Life Care: A Physician's Perspective, Nikhil Batra M.D. 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Ethical Considerations In End-Of-Life Care: A Physician's Perspective, Nikhil Batra M.D.

Reflections on Healthcare Management

This article discusses ethical issues during end-of-life care in hospitals. The commonly used medical-ethics framework for ethical reasoning comprising of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice is somewhat limited in guiding healthcare decisions. The continuing advancement in medical technology, current medico-legal environment, longer life-expectancies and increasing contextual awareness are some of the reasons why this ethical framework is limited. In addition to this, the high costs involved in end-of-life care make limit-setting decisions necessary. In order to be well received, these decisions need to meet the four conditions of accountability for reasonableness namely – publicity, relevancy, revision and appeal, and regulation. There ...

Bioethics Of Information Disclosure Across Cultures: "Don't Talk With Her About Her Condition", Christina Li 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Bioethics Of Information Disclosure Across Cultures: "Don't Talk With Her About Her Condition", Christina Li

Reflections on Healthcare Management

Healthcare providers are routinely faced with the bioethical challenges of information disclosure across cultures. This paper analyzes the case study “Don’t Talk with Her about Her Condition” (Center for Ethics in Health Care at OHSU; See Appendix A). The impact of full, partial, or non-disclosure of information to a patient greatly varies in different cultural contexts. While information disclosure emphasizes patient autonomy and informed decision-making, it also can be controversial to improving patient safety. In some cultures, the disclosure of a negative diagnosis or prognosis can pose significant risk to the patient’s health, so the patient family takes ...


Ethical Issues In Cancer Clinical Trials, Rosemary Makar M.D. 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Ethical Issues In Cancer Clinical Trials, Rosemary Makar M.D.

Reflections on Healthcare Management

Results from cancer clinical trials make valuable contributions to medical care for cancer patients. Two important ethical dilemmas in these trials are respect for individual autonomy and distributive justice. This paper explores the history of clinical trials and discusses these ethical dilemmas citing specific examples. Although there has been significant progress in these ethical issues, future review and legislation of the process will continue to improve and solidify ethical aspects of cancer clinical trials.


The Ethics Of Universal Health Care In The United States, Michael Meyer 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

The Ethics Of Universal Health Care In The United States, Michael Meyer

Reflections on Healthcare Management

Close examination of ethical arguments both for and against universal health care in the United States should lead Americans to choose universal coverage over opposing alternatives. While the number of Americans without health insurance has dropped significantly due to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, nearly 30 million Americans remain without health coverage and experience limited access to health care. This considerable figure should be of tremendous moral concern, as studies have shown that tens of thousands of Americans die each year due to this lack of health coverage. Additionally, universal health coverage would promote fairness, equality and greater ...


Access To Health Care Coverage In The United States: Rationing People Rather Than Services, Leah Vasquez 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Access To Health Care Coverage In The United States: Rationing People Rather Than Services, Leah Vasquez

Reflections on Healthcare Management

Access to health care coverage in the United States is far from equitable and raises many ethical questions related to fairness. Access refers to the ease in which an individual in need of medical services is able to obtain them. Under the framework of bioethics, issues surrounding access to health care coverage fall primarily under the principle of justice as it pertains to fairness, entitlement to and equitable distribution of resources (Trotochaud, 2006). Within the U.S. health care system, access to health insurance is the most critical factor for determining one’s access to health care services.


Moral Courage, Jennifer Teeples 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Moral Courage, Jennifer Teeples

Reflections on Healthcare Management

“Moral Courage means doing the right thing in the face of your fears” (Manji, 2016). It is not often a regular topic when discussing the complicated relationships between doctors, patients, administrators, and nurses. However, it is a topic that has the ability to have a substantial impact on the patient experience, cost of healthcare, and morale. Through creating a culture that embraces and encourages moral courage, we can improve the patient experience and create a more positive, collaborative workplace.


Priority Access To Care In The Emergency Department, James A. Heilman M.D. 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Priority Access To Care In The Emergency Department, James A. Heilman M.D.

Reflections on Healthcare Management

“Very important persons” (VIPs), “friends of physicians” and Emergency Department (ED) staff and family members often receive care in front of other patients who may be critically ill waiting for care in the ED lobby. This paper explores the organizational ethics of these three select groups of patients who often obtain priority access to care in the busy ED. A specific case is provided to highlight the challenges of these complicated encounters. The organizational ethics are then explored and potential solutions are identified. This is an important ethical and operational issue that requires exploration by emergency department and hospital leaders ...


Investigation Of Abuse Allegations In Hospitals: An Ethical Dilemma, Todd M. Warlik RN 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Investigation Of Abuse Allegations In Hospitals: An Ethical Dilemma, Todd M. Warlik Rn

Reflections on Healthcare Management

Abuse of patients by healthcare workers is an issue of serious concern for every hospital and healthcare facility. These investigations present a serious challenge to healthcare administrators in that they present a unique ethical dilemma: how to balance to concerns and safety of patients with the obligation of ensuring justice and fairness for employees. This paper attempts to dissect this issue through case example and analysis.


Machine Intelligence And Medical Ethics, Paul Wilkens 2017 Oregon Health & Science University

Machine Intelligence And Medical Ethics, Paul Wilkens

Reflections on Healthcare Management

The practice of medicine increasingly relies on machine intelligence. Most of the existing technology functions as tools to support human activity, but some emerging uses are much more complex. Automation of complicated tasks requires greater autonomy and better decision-making skills. When lives are on the line, decisions made by machine intelligence must conform to the highest standards of utility and ethical behavior. We discuss some of the near-future medical applications of machine intelligence, and how we can ensure the ethical operation of these devices. We conclude with a review of ethical philosophies that might be used to inform machine medical ...
