    When International Humanitarian or Medical Missions Go Wrong: An Ethical Analysis.David Zientek & Ric Bonnell - 2020 - HEC Forum 32 (4):333-343.
    Recent decades have seen a significant increase in physicians participating in international short-term missions to regions with limited or no access to health care by virtue of natural disaster or lack of resources. Recent publications in the ethics literature have explored the potential of these missions for unintentional harm to the intended beneficiaries. Less has been discussed about how to respond when harm actually occurs. The authors review the ethical issues raised by short-term medical and humanitarian missions and the literature (...)

    Medical Error, Malpractice and Complications: A Moral Geography. [REVIEW]David M. Zientek - 2010 - HEC Forum 22 (2):145-157.
    This essay reviews and defines avoidable medical error, malpractice and complication. The relevant ethical principles pertaining to unanticipated medical outcomes are identified. In light of these principles I critically review the moral culpability of the agents in each circumstance and the resulting obligations to patients, their families, and the health care system in general. While I touch on some legal implications, a full discussion of legal obligations and liability issues is beyond the scope of this paper.

    Artificial Nutrition and Hydration in Catholic Healthcare: Balancing Tradition, Recent Teaching, and Law. [REVIEW]David M. Zientek - 2013 - HEC Forum 25 (2):145-159.
    Roman Catholics have a long tradition of evaluating medical treatment at the end of life to determine if proposed interventions are proportionate and morally obligatory or disproportionate and morally optional. There has been significant debate within the Catholic community about whether artificially delivered nutrition and hydration can be appreciated as a medical intervention that may be optional in some situations, or if it should be treated as essentially obligatory in all circumstances. Recent statements from the teaching authority of the church (...)

    The Texas Advance Directives Act of 1999.an Exercise In Futility & David M. Zientek - 2005 - HEC Forum 17 (4):245-259.
  5. The Impact of Roman Catholic Moral Theology on End-of-Life Care Under the Texas Advance Directives Act.David Zientek - 2006 - Christian Bioethics 12 (1):65-82.
    This essay reviews the Roman Catholic moral tradition surrounding treatments at the end of life together with the challenges presented to that tradition by the Texas Advance Directives Act. The impact on Catholic health care facilities and physicians, and the way in which the moral tradition should be applied under this statute, particularly with reference to the provision dealing with conflicts over end-of-life treatments, will be critically assessed. I will argue, based on the traditional treatment of end-of-life issues, that Catholic (...)

    Healthcare in Extreme and Austere Environments: Responding to the Ethical Challenges.David Zientek - 2020 - HEC Forum 32 (4):283-291.
    Clinicians may increasingly find themselves practicing, by choice or necessity, in resource-poor or extreme environments. This often requires altering typical patterns of practice with a different set of medical and ethical considerations than are usually faced by clinicians practicing in hospitals in the United States and Europe. Practitioners may be required to alter their usual scope of practice or their standard ways of medically treating patients. Limited resources will also often place clinicians in the position of having to make decisions (...)
