    Trust Me, I’M a Researcher!: The Role of Trust in Biomedical Research.Angeliki Kerasidou - 2017 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 20 (1):43-50.
    In biomedical research lack of trust is seen as a great threat that can severely jeopardise the whole biomedical research enterprise. Practices, such as informed consent, and also the administrative and regulatory oversight of research in the form of research ethics committees and Institutional Review Boards, are established to ensure the protection of future research subjects and, at the same time, restore public trust in biomedical research. Empirical research also testifies to the role of trust as one of the decisive (...)

    Making Space for Empathy: Supporting Doctors in the Emotional Labour of Clinical Care.Angeliki Kerasidou & Ruth Horn - 2016 - BMC Medical Ethics 17 (1):1-5.
    BackgroundThe academic and medical literature highlights the positive effects of empathy for patient care. Yet, very little attention has been given to the impact of the requirement for empathy on the physicians themselves and on their emotional wellbeing.DiscussionThe medical profession requires doctors to be both clinically competent and empathetic towards the patients. In practice, accommodating both requirements can be difficult for physicians. The image of the technically skilful, rational, and emotionally detached doctor dominates the profession, and inhibits physicians from engaging (...)

    Sharing the Knowledge: Sharing Aggregate Genomic Findings with Research Participants in Developing Countries.Angeliki Kerasidou - 2015 - Developing World Bioethics 15 (3):267-274.
    Returning research results to participants is recognised as an obligation that researchers should always try to fulfil. But can we ascribe the same obligation to researchers who conduct genomics research producing only aggregated findings? And what about genomics research conducted in developing countries? This paper considers Beskow's et al. argument that aggregated findings should also be returned to research participants. This recommendation is examined in the context of genomics research conducted in developing countries. The risks and benefits of attempting such (...)

    Empathy and Efficiency in Healthcare at Times of Austerity.Angeliki Kerasidou - 2019 - Health Care Analysis 27 (3):171-184.
    Efficiency is an important value for all publicly funded healthcare systems. Limited resources need to be used prudently and wisely in order to ensure best possible outcomes and waste avoidance. Since 2010, the drive for efficiency, in the UK, has acquired a new impetus, as the country embarked on an ‘age of austerity’ purportedly to balance its books and reduce national deficit. Although the NHS did not suffer any direct budget cuts, the austerity policies imposed on the welfare system, including (...)

    Does Science Need Bioethicists? Ethics and Science Collaboration in Biomedical Research.Angeliki Kerasidou & Michael Parker - 2014 - Research Ethics 10 (4):214-226.
    Biomedical research is an increasingly multidisciplinary activity bringing together a range of different academic fields and forms of expertise to investigate diseases that are increasingly understood to be complex and multifactorial. Recently the discipline of ethics has been starting to find a place in large-scale biomedical collaborations. In this article we draw from our experience of working with the Malaria Genomic Epidemiology Network and other research projects to reflect upon the integration of ethics into biomedical research. We examine the way (...)

    The Need for Empathetic Healthcare Systems.Angeliki Kerasidou, Kristine Bærøe, Zackary Berger & Amy E. Caruso Brown - forthcoming - Journal of Medical Ethics:medethics-2019-105921.
    Medicine is not merely a job that requires technical expertise, but a profession concerned with making the best decisions and recommendations with reference to, and in consultation with, the patient. This means that the skill set required for healthcare professionals in order to provide good care is a combination of scientific knowledge, technical aptitude, and affective qualities or virtues such as compassion and empathy.

    Taking It to the Bank: The Ethical Management of Individual Findings Arising in Secondary Research.Mackenzie Graham, Nina Hallowell, Berge Solberg, Ari Haukkala, Joanne Holliday, Angeliki Kerasidou, Thomas Littlejohns, Elizabeth Ormondroyd, John-Arne Skolbekken & Marleena Vornanen - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (10):689-696.
    A rapidly growing proportion of health research uses ‘secondary data’: data used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected. Do researchers using secondary data have an obligation to disclose individual research findings to participants? While the importance of this question has been duly recognised in the context of primary research, it remains largely unexamined in the context of research using secondary data. In this paper, we critically examine the arguments for a moral obligation to disclose individual (...)

    Sharing Whilst Caring: Solidarity and Public Trust in a Data-Driven Healthcare System.Ruth Horn & Angeliki Kerasidou - 2020 - BMC Medical Ethics 21 (1):1-7.
    Background In the UK, the solidaristic character of the NHS makes it one of the most trusted public institutions. In recent years, the introduction of data-driven technologies in healthcare has opened up the space for collaborations with private digital companies seeking access to patient data. However, these collaborations appear to challenge the public’s trust in the. Main text In this paper we explore how the opening of the healthcare sector to private digital companies challenges the existing social contract and the (...)

    The Value of Sharing Genomic Findings with Research Ethics Committees.Angeliki Kerasidou - 2017 - Research Ethics 13 (2):59-64.
    The role of ethics committees is to protect and safeguard the rights and welfare of participants, and promote good research by providing ethical guidance to researchers. In order for ethics committees to fulfil their role and obligations, they need to have adequate understanding of the science and scientific methods used in research. Genomics is a novel and rapidly evolving research field, and identifying the ethical issues raised by it is not straightforward. Limited understanding of, and expertise in, reviewing genomic research (...)
