    Discussions on Present Japanese Psychocultural-Social Tendencies as Obstacles to Clinical Shared Decision-Making in Japan.Seiji Bito, Taketoshi Okita & Atsushi Asai - 2022 - Asian Bioethics Review 14 (2):133-150.
    In Japan, where a prominent gap exists in what is considered a patient’s best interest between the medical and patient sides, appropriate decision-making can be difficult to achieve. In Japanese clinical settings, decision-making is considered an act of choice-making from multiple potential options. With many ethical dilemmas still remaining, establishing an appropriate decision-making process is an urgent task in modern Japanese healthcare. This paper examines ethical issues related to shared decision-making in clinical settings in modern Japan from the psychocultural-social perspective (...)

    Reducing the Ethical Burdens of Antimicrobial Stewardship Using a Social Determinants Approach.Vijayaprasad Gopichandran - 2022 - Asian Bioethics Review 14 (2):183-190.
    Antimicrobial resistance is an emerging global health problem. Antimicrobial stewardship interventions attempt at regulating the prescription and use of antimicrobials so that the emergence of resistance is reduced. But antimicrobial stewardship interventions have several ethical issues such as inequity in access to antimicrobials among the poor who need them more, and limitation of the autonomy of prescribers and patients. Several upstream social determinants influence susceptibility to infections, antimicrobial prescription practices, and emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Some of these social determinants impose (...)

    Health Inequalities Amongst Refugees and Migrant Workers in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Report of Two Cases.Shu Hui Ng - 2022 - Asian Bioethics Review 14 (2):107-114.
    Malaysia hosts a significant number of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrant workers. Healthcare access for these individuals has always proved a challenge: language barriers, financial constraints and mobility restrictions are some of the frequently cited hurdles. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these existing inequalities, with migrants and refugees bearing the brunt of chronic systemic injustices. Providing equitable healthcare access for all, regardless of their citizenship and social status remains an ethical challenge for healthcare providers, particularly within the framework of a resource-limited (...)

    Exploring the Ethical Dilemmas in End-of-Life Care and the Concept of a Good Death in Bhutan.Langa Tenzin, Dorji Gyeltshen, Kinley Yangdon, Nidup Dorji & Thinley Dorji - 2022 - Asian Bioethics Review 14 (2):191-197.
    Buddhists, including the Bhutanese, value human life as rare and precious, and accept sickness, ageing and death as normal aspects of life. However, death and dying are subjects that evoke deep and disturbing emotions often characterised by denial related to high-tech medicalisation and its inspiring hope. Advanced medical interventions such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation are believed to interfere with the natural process of dying. However, some excessively pursue medical interventions in the hope of prolonging and preserving life, refusing its finitude. Healthcare (...)
