    Exploring Nursing Values in the Development of a Nurse-Led Service.Sara Faithfull & Geoffrey Hunt - 2005 - Nursing Ethics 12 (5):440-452.
    This article considers the development of nurse-led services as a part of a pilot study and explores the therapeutic nature of the role of the nurse. In particular it suggests a need for reconsideration of the fundamental values of nurse-led care in the context of changing organizational culture. Within the UK there has been pressure from policy makers to extend the role of the specialist nurse and create new nursing roles, shifting the boundaries between professional health groups. The philosophy of (...)

    A Sense of Life: The Future of Industrial-Style Health Care.Geoffrey Hunt - 2004 - Nursing Ethics 11 (2):189-202.
    In this article I attempt to transcend the mainstream conception of health care ethics, including nursing ethics, by bringing into the foreground a tension between a sense of life and an industrial-bureaucratic style of health care, with its emphasis on the systematic and procedural work culture necessary for mass production. I use the concept of ‘a sense of life’ to draw attention to the wisdom, sensitivity and responsibility that is necessary for the authentic care of others to be given a (...)

    Moral Crisis, Professionals and Ethical Education.Geoffrey Hunt - 1997 - Nursing Ethics 4 (1):29-38.
    Western civilization has probably reached an impasse, expressed as a crisis on all fronts: economic, technological, environmental and political. This is experienced on the cultural level as a moral crisis or an ethical deficit. Somehow, the means we have always assumed as being adequate to the task of achieving human welfare, health and peace, are failing us. Have we lost sight of the primacy of human ends? Governments still push for economic growth and technological advances, but many are now asking: (...)

    Elements of an Engaged Clinical Ethics: A Qualitative Analysis of Hospice Clinical Ethics Committee Discussions.Geoffrey Hunt, Craig Gannon & Ann Gallagher - 2012 - Clinical Ethics 7 (4):175-182.
    Social, legal and health-care changes have created an increasing need for ethical review within end-of-life care. Multiprofessional clinical ethics committees (CECs) are increasingly supporting decision-making in hospitals and hospices. This paper reports findings from an analysis of formal summaries from CEC meetings, of one UK hospice, spanning four years. Using qualitative content analysis, five themes were identified: timeliness of decision-making, holistic care, contextual openness, values diversity and consensual understanding. The elements of an engaged clinical ethics in a hospice context is (...)

  5. Ethical Issues in Nursing.Dr Geoffrey Hunt & Geoffrey Hunt (eds.) - 1994 - Routledge.
    This is the first book to take nursing ethics beyond stock 'moral concepts' to a critical examination of the fundamental assumptions underlying the very nature of nursing. It takes as its point of departure the difficulties nurses experience practising within the confines of a bioethical model of health and illness and a hierarchical, technocratic health care system. The contributors go on to deal openly and honestly with controversial issues faced by nurses, such as euthanasia and HIV.

    Finocchiaro offers an interpretation of Antonio Gramscis Prison Notebooks. He is interested in Gramscis thoughts on politics, social science, and religion but tells us that he is not concerned directly with the content of these. Such details are best worked out after we know what he means by religion, science and politics (5). He thinks that Gramscis conceptual framework must be identified first so that one can then proceed to find more order in the Notebooks (5). There follows an extended (...)

    Abortion: Why Bioethics Can Have No Answer – A Personal Perspective.Geoffrey Hunt - 1999 - Nursing Ethics 6 (1):47-57.
    Abortion is one of the great moral debates of the epoch. Is there a rational method by which the debate can be resolved? Can bioethics' promise of such a method be fulfilled? Surely, a strictly rational approach can establish solid grounds for our beliefs once and for all. We would then be justified in deeming as unreasonable anyone who does not accept the perfectly rational conclusions. I present two scenarios to show that there can be no such philosophically grounded method (...)

  19. Death, Medicine & Bioethics.Geoffrey Hunt - 1994 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 15 (4).
    The assumptions of philosophy need scrutiny as much the assumptions of medicine do. Scrutiny shows that the philosophical method of bioethics is compromised, for it shares certain fundamental assumptions with medicine itself. To show this requires an unorthodox style of philosophy — a literary one. To show the compromised status of bioethics the paper discusses some seminal utilitarian discussions of the definition of death, of whether it is a bad thing, and of when it ought to occur.

  21. Schizophrenia and Indeterminacy: The Problem of Validity.Geoffrey Hunt - 1990 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 11 (1).
    The paper attempts to account for the confusion over the validity of the concept of schizophrenia in terms of two closely related aspects of conceptual indeterminacy. Firstly, it is identified on the basis of a breakdown in intelligibility, but what constitutes such a breakdown is indeterminate. Secondly, the concept sits between the categories of natural disease or illness on the one hand, and character trait or moral failing or gift on the other. This entails an indeterminacy in attempting to define (...)

    A Tool for the Consensual Analysis of Decision-Making Scenarios.Geoffrey Hunt, Christine Merzeder & Iren Bischofberger - 2018 - Nursing Ethics 25 (3):359-375.
    The authors believe there is a need for novel ways of enhancing professional judgment and discretion in the contemporary healthcare environment. The objective is to provide a framework to guide a discursive analysis of an ongoing clinical scenario by a small group of healthcare professionals to achieve consensual understanding in the decision-making necessary to resolve specific healthcare inadequacies and promote organisational learning. REPVAD is an acronym for the framework’s five decision-making dimensions of reasoning, evidence, procedures, values, attitudes and defences. The (...)
