  • Epistemology, Ethics, and Progress in Precision Medicine
    • Abstract: One of the central goals of precision medicine is to dissolve the long-standing tension between the population-level data provided by traditional randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and the physician’s need to prescribe therapies for their individual patient. The RCT can tell the physician that therapy A is, on average, more effective than therapy B for a population of patients, P, but this does not tell her whether A is more effective for the particular patient, p1, in front of her. However, by leveraging the tools and insights of molecular biology, precision medicine hopes to prospectively determine which therapies will work for which patients and overcome this problem. Fundamental to the ... Read More

  • Root Metaphor and Bioethics
    • Abstract: It is pictures rather than propositions, metaphors rather than statements, which determine most of our philosophical convictions. Bioethics has been particularly attentive to the role of metaphors in the discourse on moral issues in medicine. In The Physician’s Covenant (2000), William May discusses how the various metaphors of the physician (fighter, technician, companion in dying) influence the manner in which we analyze problems in clinical ethics. Meaghan O’Keefe and colleagues (2015) have argued that particular metaphors dominate and in turn mediate the representation of genetic modification to the public’. Craig Klugman (2010) has analyzed the power of various metaphors used in the discussion of ... Read More

  • When Patients’ Values Challenge Professional Integrity: Which Way
           Out?
    • Abstract: An elderly patient in his early eighties is hospitalized in a long-term facility, with advanced Alzheimer disease. He is otherwise relatively strong and free from other life-threatening conditions, except for the fact that he has difficulties swallowing. After several episodes of acute aspiration pneumonia doctors prescribe “strict fast”: only hydration through an IV catheter should be administered during the night, in order to relieve the feeling of hunger, provide comfort, and stave off death. The patient is surrounded by a warm and extremely close-knit Mediterranean family. His wife and six adult children take turns feeding him properly mixed food twice a day and prefer to take the risk of causing another ... Read More

  • Towards an Empirically Informed Account of Phronesis in Medicine
    • Abstract: In medical ethics, a large body of work exists on the virtues that enable good medical practice. Medical virtue ethics singles out a number of virtues of the good doctor for attention; among others, these include empathy, care, truthfulness, and justice (Batt-Rawden 2013; Carel and Kidd 2014; Jackson 2001, 2002; Leffel et al. 2014). According to medical ethicists like Pellegrino and Thomasma (1993), however, phronesis, or “practical wisdom,” occupies a special place among these virtues (83). For Pellegrino and Thomasma, phronesis is “indispensable” to good medical practice, because it coordinates all the different moral virtues that the doctor must bring to ethical decisions as part of wise moral action. ...

  • Should a Legal Option of Physician-Assisted Death Include Those Who Are
           “Tired of Life”?
    • Abstract: Recently, Canada’s National Post described in detail the death by lethal injection of a 94-year-old man, living alone, who had multiple medical problems but was not terminally ill (Hutchinson 2016). His son helped find a physician willing to administer lethal medication soon after his father told him he “wasn’t planning on adding another digit” to his age. The physician who complied with the request is a leading advocate for assisted death in Canada, who reportedly has been responsible for more than 30 life-terminating acts within the few months since the law was passed in June 2016. The son of the man who died by active euthanasia declared, “Dad got the death he wanted.” Should a legal option of ... Read More

  • Self-Regulation of Science: What Can We Still Learn from Asilomar?
    • Abstract: Ethical decision-making in public health rarely involves simply avoiding a bad choice in favor of a good choice. Instead, it requires policymakers to strike a balance among conflicting goals that are all good—goals such as the health of populations and individuals, knowledge gained through scientific research, autonomy, social justice, and the efficient use of limited resources (Gostin 2010; Huster and Schramme 2015). This balance can be elusive, and perfect examples are the legal instruments governing dual-use research, a term describing scientific endeavors meant to produce beneficial knowledge or technology, but that could also be misapplied. Dual-use research of concern (DURC) policies were implemented ... Read More

  • Hippocrates’ First Aphorism: Reflections on Ageless Principles for
           the Practice of Medicine
    • Abstract: Hippocrates (c. 460–370 Bce), celebrated as the Father of Medicine, emphasized the importance of observation in diagnosis and prognosis (Figure 1). In so doing, he argued that the observant physician could draw on both senses and logic in interpreting clinical findings for the benefit of the patient. Among his many writings is a collection of aphorisms that remain highly relevant to the practice of medicine to this day. The first of these is the best known: which can be translated as: Deceptively simple in structure, this aphorism offers many levels of meaning and interpretation that, as I will show, remain highly relevant to the contemporary practice of medicine. Containing a richness of ... Read More

  • What Hospitalists Should Know About Intersex Adults
    • Abstract: A 35-year-old woman presents to the hospital after a fall at home. A routine medical history and physical examination reveal that the patient identifies as intersex, and an X-ray of the left hip demonstrates profound osteopenia. The patient is admitted to the hospitalist service for further evaluation. What does it mean to identify as intersex? In the medical world, “intersex” is usually referred to as DSD, or “disorders of sex development.” Until the 1990s, physicians referred to this condition as hermaphroditism, but this label is no longer used because it evokes mythical creatures rather than real human beings. Even the DSD label is controversial, and the patient in our case study does not think ... Read More

  • “The News is Not Altogether Comforting”: Fiction and the
           Diagnostic Moment
    • Abstract: The diagnostic moment is a moment replete with drama. As Suzanne Fleischmann (1999) has written, hearing the announcement of a serious diagnosis draws an indelible line to demarcate before and after, which will be evermore imposed on an individual’s narrative construction of her life story. We can imagine this moment, considering with apprehension the “what if?” as we attend our doctor’s appointments for the verdict on what ails us. Belief in its transformative power is impressive (Jutel 2014, 2016). That we can imagine it is not surprising, as it is represented so widely in various creative work. In this paper, I turn to the presence of the diagnostic moment in fiction. I love to read. This ... Read More

  • A Safer Place
    • Abstract: When you’re on call as a chaplain, you live on the edge. One side is simple, a Bible or a quick prayer. But the other side . . . . My pager went off: “Ten-year-old stabbed in head with a screwdriver.” The pager blinked. I saw the doors spring open in the ER. The stretcher vaulted through the door as the EMTs wasted no time. The 10-year-old girl appeared then disappeared from sight, a squid-like creature sprouting plastic tubes instead of tentacles. She was swallowed by Trauma Room One. Speed forecasts serious trouble. Bill the EMT was pushing the cart, and his expression startled me. ER vets rarely openly react to tough situations. We are like arrogant college professors surveying our ... Read More

  • Humility Through Humiliation in Continuity Clinic
    • Abstract: I hated my outpatient primary care clinic during residency. Every Wednesday at noon, I scrambled to finish my inpatient work in the hospital, to raggedly see my patients, to sign out my unfinished errands to the covering residents, and to leave the children’s hospital, heading north up the dilapidated thoroughfare to the federally qualified health center where my residency clinic was held. The noise of the street, the honking of the cars, the shouts of the pedestrians, the extremes of cold and of heat: after hiding in the sanctity of the university, the five-minute march up to clinic immersed me in the battlefield of the South Side of Chicago. The march prepared me for the chaos that awaited me in the ... Read More

  • Trains Departing from Different Stations: Being Mortal and Dying in the
           21st Century
    • Abstract: Every July, when new resident physicians arrive at our teaching hospital, a colleague reminds them that “You now work in the train station of the gods. People coming and going all the time. You’ll need to ask spiritual questions.” He can offer this counsel annually because—whether it arrives early, as expected, or in error—every one of us is awaiting her departing train. Every few years, an experienced physician-writer offers counsel on what it means to work in these train stations, to tend to people as they die in contemporary hospitals. The physician-writer often describes the equivalent of train wrecks—harried and heedless deaths—and sounds a call for reform. The call is answered, in part, by ... Read More

  • Doctors Without Borders
    • Abstract: Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (usually called MSF) is among the most emblematic nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the field of medical humanitarian assistance. Since its creation in 1971 in the wake of the Biafran War, MSF has grown to be admired for its outstanding boldness and often disliked for its fierce arrogance. Although best known publicly as a large organization that operates in the world’s most ravaged places and that is supported by millions of individual donors, internal staff and field workers typically identify with MSF more as an association of individual members than as an international organization. Renee C. Fox’s 2014 book, Doctors Without Borders: ... Read More
