    Medicine, emotience, and reason.John F. Clark - 2024 - Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine 19 (1):1-10.
    Medicine is faced with a number of intractable modern challenges that can be understood in terms of hyper-intellectualization; a compassion crisis, burnout, dehumanization, and lost meaning. These challenges have roots in medical philosophy and indeed general Western philosophy by way of the historic exclusion of human emotion from human reason. The resolution of these medical challenges first requires a novel philosophic schema of human knowledge and reason that incorporates the balanced interaction of human intellect and human emotion. This schema of (...)

    The ethical foundations of patient-centered care in aesthetic medicine.Editta Buttura da Prato, Hugues Cartier, Andrea Margara, Beatriz Molina, Antonello Tateo, Franco Grimolizzi & Antonio Gioacchino Spagnolo - 2024 - Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine 19 (1):1-7.
    This article addresses some critical aspects of the relationship between aesthetic medicine (AM) and ethics and proposes a possible deontological ethical line to pursue based on current practices. The role of AM has always been controversial and suffers from unclear practical and moral boundaries, even within academic settings, since it aims to improve the appearance of individuals, not to cure a disease. Today, it is essential and pertinent to discuss these issues, as AM specialists are dealing with a growing and (...)

    Consent as a compositional act – a framework that provides clarity for the retention and use of data.Minerva C. Rivas Velarde, Christian Lovis, Marcello Ienca, Caroline Samer & Samia Hurst - 2024 - Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine 19 (1):1-10.
    Background Informed consent is one of the key principles of conducting research involving humans. When research participants give consent, they perform an act in which they utter, write or otherwise provide an authorisation to somebody to do something. This paper proposes a new understanding of the informed consent as a compositional act. This conceptualisation departs from a modular conceptualisation of informed consent procedures. Methods This paper is a conceptual analysis that explores what consent is and what it does or does (...)

    Gender-sensitive considerations of prehospital teamwork in critical situations.Matthias Zimmer, Daria Magdalena Czarniecki & Stephan Sahm - 2024 - Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine 19 (1):1-9.

Methods A descriptive and anonymous study was conducted with an online questionnaire targeting emergency physicians and paramedics. The participants were asked about teamwork, communication, patient safety and handling of errors. Results Seven hundred fourteen prehospital professionals from all (...)
