  1. Michele Farisco, Enrico Alleva, Flavia Chiarotti, Simone Macri & Carlo Petrini (2014). Clinicians' Attitudes Toward Patients with Disorders of Consciousness: A Survey. Neuroethics 7 (1):93-104.
    Notwithstanding fundamental methodological advancements, scientific information about disorders of consciousness (DOCs)—e.g. Vegetative State/Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome (VS/UWS) and Minimally Conscious State (MCS)—is incomplete. The possibility to discriminate between different levels of consciousness in DOC states entails treatment strategies and ethical concerns. Here we attempted to investigate Italian clinicians’ and basic scientists’ opinions regarding some issues emerging from the care and the research on patients with DOCs. From our survey emerged that Italian physicians working with patients with DOCs give a central role (...)

  2. Michele Farisco & Carlo Petrini (2014). On the Stand. Another Episode of Neuroscience and Law Discussion From Italy. Neuroethics 7 (2):243-245.
    After three proceedings in which neuroscience was a relevant factor for the final verdict in Italian courts, for the first time a recent case puts in question the legal relevance of neuroscientific evidence. This decision deserves international attention in its underlining that the uncertainty still affecting neuroscientific knowledge can have a significant impact on the law. It urges the consideration of such uncertainty and the development of a shared management of it.

    PurposeThe aim of this paper is to assess the complex issue of responsibility in clinical practice. The paper focuses mainly on the relationship between personal- and medical-professional responsibility of practitioners and clinical guidelines.MethodsAfter a theoretical review of the different definitions of responsibility in selected bioethical and biojuridical literature, two recent juridical proceedings concerning medical responsibility from Italian Courts are discussed. Subsequently, a theoretical analysis of the definition of clinical practice guidelines is proposed in order to show their feasibility to assess (...)

    Translational research is a main focus of current health policy (Albani and Prakken 2009; PLoS Medicine 2008). Translation of biomedical research knowledge to effective clinical treatment is essential to the public good (Lavis et al. 2003). Only 5% of basic science studies showing significant therapeutic promise are successfully translated into clinical application (Contopoulos-Ioannidis, Ntzani, and Ionannidis 2003; FDA 2004). As Hall (2001) observes, this is a problem: "When too many important discoveries lie dormant, the public good suffers" (p. G1127). Recent (...)

    Increases in international travel and migratory flows have enabled infectious diseases to emerge and spread more rapidly than ever before. Hence, it is increasingly easy for local infectious diseases to become global infectious diseases (GIDs). National governments must be able to react quickly and effectively to GIDs, whether naturally occurring or intentionally instigated by bioterrorism. According to the World Health Organisation, global partnerships are necessary to gather the most up-to-date information and to mobilize resources to tackle GIDs when necessary. Communicable (...)
