Abstract

This book, edited by a team of leading European bioethicists, is in all respects an innovative publication. As part of the core materials project of the European Ethics Network, this book collects European perspectives on health care ethics reflecting both the rich philosophical tradition and the broad interdisciplinary network in the field of European health care ethics. In the first part of the book on the physician-patient relationship, the authors present different views on the integration of patient autonomy in the relational structure of the medical profession. Here, the focus is on the reception of patient autonomy in the European context and on European alternatives for the radical understanding of patient autonomy. In the second part of this book, the contributions deal with the ethical problems of clinical research with patients and with the ethical values involved in human experimentation. In the third part of the book, the just organisation of the health care system and the consequent resource allocation are critically examined. With their common European background, the authors want to enrich and encourage the ongoing discussion on the physician-patient relationship, human experimentation and justice in health care from various perspectives and different points of departure. Therefore, this volume is suitable for the interested reader as well as for educational purposes

Abstract

Il y a un demi siècle seulement, l'ADN livrait le secret de sa structure en double hélice. Depuis, il est devenu possible d'accéder aux mécanismes moléculaires de l'hérédité, de modifier les formes naturelles du vivant, et de créer des "OGM", des organismes génétiquement modifiés, bactéries, plantes ou animaux - sans que les processus biologiques mis en jeu soient toujours parfaitement compris, ni parfaitement maîtrisés. Les utilisations de la génétique réveillent dès lors des craintes anciennes, et en activent de nouvelles, qui touchent les unes et les autres aux conséquences de la manipulation du vivant, en général et de la modification de l'humain, en particulier. Ce livre analyse la manière dont notre société a accueilli ces techniques, et restitue les termes du débat qui en est résulté, pour aboutir à un constat implacable : jamais ce débat n'a été à la hauteur des enjeux. Fondé sur des recherches systématiques et précises, conjuguant clarté et rigueur scientifique, toujours très documenté, cet ouvrage mobilise sociologie, politologie et sciences juridiques de manière intégrée, refuse les facilités de la simple juxtaposition des perspectives offertes et dénonce la confiscation de thèmes scientifiques et techniques par les "experts". Par les analyses qu'il développe, ce livre constitue un plaidoyer argumenté pour une démocratie scientifique.

Abstract

Drawing on twenty-five years of medical practice and research, Dr. H. Gilbert Welch and his colleagues, Dr. Lisa M. Schwartz and Dr. Steven Woloshin, have studied the effects of screenings and presumed preventative measures for disease and "pre-disease." Welch argues that while many Americans believe that more diagnosis is always better, the medical, social, and economic ramifications of unnecessary diagnoses are in fact seriously detrimental. Unnecessary surgeries, medication side effects, debilitating anxiety, and the overwhelming price tag on health care are only a few of the potential harms of overdiagnosis.Through the stories of his patients and colleagues, and drawing from popular media, Dr. Welch illustrates how overdiagnosis occurs and the pitfalls of routine tests in healthy individuals. We are introduced to patients such as Michael, who had a slight pain in his back. Despite soon feeling fine, a questionable abnormal chest X-ray led to a sophisticated scan that detected a tiny clot in his lung. Because it could not be explained, his doctors suggested that it could be a sign of cancer. Michael did not have cancer, but he now sees a psychiatrist to deal with his anxiety about cancer.

Abstract

This book highlights both the relation between technology and care, and the normative aspects of economic analyses in health care. A series of concrete examples from various clinical fields (prenatal diagnosis, genetic tests, digital imaging in psychiatry, tube feeding in care for the elderly, and palliative sedation) helps the authors to consider how to integrate these technologies in a care context aimed upon humaneness. Each topic is analysed by leading European clinicians and health care ethicists.

Abstract

Les morales traditionnelles sont devenues inopérantes en particulier pour les décideurs politiques. Hans Jonas propose une reformulation de l'éthique autour de l'idée de responsabilité, sous ses différents aspects (naturelle et contractuelle), et voit dans les parents et les hommes d'État deux modèles essentiels ; il discute les idéaux de progrès et les utopies (d'où le titre qui rappelle Le Principe espérance d'Ernst Bloch) et dessine une philosophie de l'" espérance responsable" fondée sur le respect. L'accueil réservé à cette grande œuvre - des philosophes aux décideurs politiques et des pédagogues aux scientifiques - témoigne de l'actualité d'une telle réflexion.
