Ethical issues and addiction. - PubMed - NCBI

The epidemic of substance abuse continues to pose a significant challenge to clinicians nationwide. Although there is a tendency to simply associate drug abuse with poverty, the problem affects every social stratum gender and race; and pregnant women are no exception. Caring for pregnant, substance-using women and their infants presents complex legal and ethical issues. Debate is ongoing about whether criminal penalties should be imposed on women based solely on their use of alcohol and other drugs during pregnancy. Furthermore, controversies persist about the rights and wishes of pregnant women versus the interests of their fetuses. For health professionals, conflict arises when the pregnant woman chooses behaviors that have the potential to harm the developing fetus. The ethical dilemma arises from competing autonomy-based and beneficence-based obligations to the maternal-fetal dyad. This chapter explores the ethics-based conflicts in the delivery of health care to drug abusing pregnant women.

What Doctors Can Learn from Journalists About Ethics in Medical Reporting | Blog

As a physician who regularly discusses health news online and in the media, I find myself in a very fortunate position — I am able to quickly reach vast numbers of people and provide them with credible (and hopefully impactful) information on health and wellness. Because of this, just as in clinical interactions, I know I must put patients first, choosing my words carefully so that I can provide people with facts they need to better understand their disease state and treatment options. I also know that I must be aware of the fact that as opposed to clinical encounters, there is no opportunity for patient interaction. What I say must be geared toward stimulating further conversation between members of my audience and their own private physicians. Statements must be clear and evidence-based, and stories must be reported without bias.

Complexities in responding to the Ebola epidemic

I disagree with Gericke in his editorial on Ebola and ethics.1 Because there was no vaccine, health workers at the front line were desperate for an effective response, so the focus on specific treatments was highly appropriate. If an effective treatment had been found, people would have seen hospitals as places to be cured rather than …

Abortion Care

This comprehensive review of the emotive and often controversial topic of abortion provides clinicians with a multidisciplinary focus on abortion services, discussing clinical topics in their sociological, legal and ethical context. It is particularly timely as novel methods of service delivery make this vital resource more accessible, allowing abortion to be performed in community settings. Topics include medical and surgical methods of abortion, ultrasound scanning, pain control, complications, and abortion in women with medical conditions, as well as ethics, stigma, and human rights. Written by leading authorities in their subject areas, Abortion Care is essential reading for medical and nursing specialists and forms a useful resource in the delivery of graduate courses in the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology and sexual and reproductive healthcare. It is also of interest to professionals involved in planning, delivering and managing women's health services, including counsellors, service managers and public health specialists.
