  1. The appearance of Kant's deontology in contemporary Kantianism: Concepts of patient autonomy in bioethics.Barbara Secker - 1999 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 24 (1):43 – 66.
    Kant's concept of autonomy and the Kantian notion of autonomy are often conflated in bioethics. However, the contemporary Kantian notion has very little at all to do with Kant's original. In order to further bioethics discourse on autonomy, I critically distinguish the contemporary Kantian notion from Kant's original concept of moral autonomy. I then evaluate the practical relevance of both concepts of autonomy for use in bioethics. I argue that it is not appropriate to appeal to either concept toward assessing (...)

    Education for Ethics Practice: Tailoring Curricula to Local Needs and Objectives. [REVIEW]Cheryl Cline, Ann Heesters, Barbara Secker & Andrea Frolic - 2012 - HEC Forum 24 (3):227-243.
    Currently, there is no authoritative credentialing process for individuals engaged in ethics practice, no accreditation system that sets minimum education standards for programs aiming to prepare these individuals for their work, and little evidence available that any particular training model is actually achieving its pedagogical goals. At the same time, a number of healthcare organizations and universities now routinely offer post-graduate programs, clinical fellowships and in-house training specifically devised to prepare graduates for ethics practice. However, while their numbers appear to (...)

    Just regionalisation: rehabilitating care for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. [REVIEW]Barbara Secker, Maya J. Goldenberg, Barbara E. Gibson, Frank Wagner, Bob Parke, Jonathan Breslin, Alison Thompson, Jonathan R. Lear & Peter A. Singer - 2006 - BMC Medical Ethics 7 (1):1-13.
    Background Regionalised models of health care delivery have important implications for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses yet the ethical issues surrounding disability and regionalisation have not yet been explored. Although there is ethics-related research into disability and chronic illness, studies of regionalisation experiences, and research directed at improving health systems for these patient populations, to our knowledge these streams of research have not been brought together. Using the Canadian province of Ontario as a case study, we address this gap (...)
