    Observations of physician, patient and family perceptions of informed consent in Houston, texas.Eugene V. Boisaubin - 2004 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 29 (2):225 – 236.
    Informed consent is one of the most important ethical and legal principles in the United States, including Texas, and reflects a profound respect for individuals and their ability to make decisions in their own best interest. It is also a critical underpinning of medical practice, although how it is actually carried out has not been well studied. A survey was conducted in the private practices and a hospital in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas to ascertain how physicians, patients (...)

    Houston, Texas, is a major U.S. city with, like many, a growing aging population.

    Prescribing viagra in an ethically responsible fashion.Eugene V. Boisaubin & Laurence B. McCullough - 2004 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 29 (6):739 – 749.
    Sildenafil citrate (Viagra) and other newly released pharmaceuticals that assist erectile dysfunction may be one of the most important categories of drugs released in the past decade. Sildenafil is distinctive because it creates a new therapeutic relationship not only between patient and physician, but also with sexual partner(s). Physicians must first evaluate the patient comprehensively, addressing not only erectile function and sexual performance, but overall physical and mental health. Since the drug does impact others, an expanded model for informed consent (...)
