    Request for organ donation without donor registration: a qualitative study of the perspectives of bereaved relatives.Jack de Groot, Maria van Hoek, Cornelia Hoedemaekers, Andries Hoitsma, Hans Schilderman, Wim Smeets, Myrra Vernooij-Dassen & Evert van Leeuwen - 2016 - BMC Medical Ethics 17 (1):1.
    In the Netherlands, consent from relatives is obligatory for post mortal donation. This study explored the perspectives of relatives regarding the request for consent for donation in cases without donor registration. A content analysis of narratives of 24 bereaved relatives of unregistered, eligible, brain-dead donors was performed. Relatives of unregistered, brain-dead patients usually refuse consent for donation, even if they harbour pro-donation attitudes themselves, or knew that the deceased favoured organ donation. Half of those who refused consent for donation mentioned (...)

    Morisprudence: A Theoretical Framework for Studying the Relationship Linking Moral Case Deliberation, Organisational Learning and Quality Improvement.Niek Kok, Marieke Zegers, Hans van der Hoeven, Cornelia Hoedemaekers & Jelle van Gurp - forthcoming - Journal of Medical Ethics.
    There is a claim that clinical ethics support services improve healthcare quality within healthcare organisations. However, there is lack of strong evidence supporting this claim. Rather, the current focus is on the quality of CESS themselves or on individual learning outcomes. In response, this article proposes a theoretical framework leading to empirical hypotheses that describe the relationship between a specific type of CESS, moral case deliberation and the quality of care at the organisational level. We combine insights from the literature (...)

    Culture, Normativity and Morisprudence: A Response to the Commentaries.Niek Kok, Marieke Zegers, Cornelia Hoedemaekers & Jelle van Gurp - 2022 - Journal of Medical Ethics 48 (12):985-986.
    We are grateful for the thoughtful replies to our article. 1 We are especially encouraged that all respondents agree that it is of value to develop a theoretical framework which helps to study how clinical ethics support services (CESS) induce individual and organisational learning. We have focused on the relations between moral case deliberation (MCD), organisational learning and quality improvement from a predominantly sociological perspective. The goal of our theoretical framework was to establish hypotheses which allow for empirical evaluation of (...)
