    Safeguards for procedural consent in obstetric care.David I. Shalowitz & Steven J. Ralston - 2023 - Journal of Medical Ethics 49 (9):628-629.
    Van der Pijl et al outline data suggesting an alarmingly high incidence of violation of the bodily integrity of patients in labour, including episiotomies performed without patients’ consent, or over their explicit objection.1 Similar data have been reported from the USA and Canada.2 The authors appropriately conclude that explicit consent is required at the time of all invasive obstetrical procedures, including episiotomy. Commonsense adjustments to the duration and detail of consent under conditions of clinical urgency are appropriate and should be (...)

    Ethical challenges for women’s healthcare highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.Bethany Bruno, David I. Shalowitz & Kavita Shah Arora - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (2):69-72.
    Healthcare policies developed during the COVID-19 pandemic to safeguard community health have the potential to disadvantage women in three areas. First, protocols for deferral of elective surgery may assign a lower priority to important reproductive outcomes. Second, policies regarding the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 may not capture the complexity of the considerations related to pregnancy. Third, policies formulated to reduce infectious exposure inadvertently may increase disparities in maternal health outcomes and rates of violence towards women. In this commentary, we (...)

    Shared Decision-Making and the Lower Literate Patient.David I. Shalowitz & Michael S. Wolf - 2004 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 32 (4):759-764.
    In recent years, shared decision-making has become entrenched in the medical literature and the law as the ideal method for involving patients in decisions related to their health care. Shared decision-making represents a compromise between the opposed extremes of paternalistic interactions that limit patients’ control of their health care, and “informed choice” interactions that require physicians to provide technical expertise only, leaving patients to make all treatment decisions on their own. An implicit goal of shared decision-making is to improve medical (...)
