    Examining the Ethico-Legal Aspects of the Right to Refuse Treatment in Turkey.Gurkan Sert & Tolga Guven - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (10):632-635.
    This paper examines the ethico-legal problems regarding the right to refuse treatment in Turkey's healthcare system. We discuss these problems in the light of a recent case that was directly reported to us. We first summarise the experience of a chronically dependent patient (as recounted by her daughter) and her family during their efforts to refuse treatment and receive palliative care only. This is followed by a summary of the legal framework governing the limits of the right to refuse treatment (...)

    Advance Directives in Turkey's Cultural Context: Examining the Potential Benefits for the Implementation of Patient Rights.Tolga Guven & Gurkan Sert - 2010 - Bioethics 24 (3):127-133.
    Advance directives are not a part of the healthcare service in Turkey. This may be related with the fact that paternalism is common among the healthcare professionals in the country, and patients are not yet integrated in the decision-making process adequately. However, starting from the enactment of the Regulation of Patient Rights in 1998, this situation started to change. While the paternalist tradition still appears to be strong in Turkey, the Ministry of Health has been taking concrete measures in the (...)

    Towards a Specific Approach to Education in Dental Ethics: A Proposal for Organising the Topics of Biomedical Ethics for Dental Education: Table 1.Sefik Gorkey, Tolga Guven & Gurkan Sert - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (1):60-63.
    Understanding dental ethics as a field separate from its much better known counterpart, medical ethics, is a relatively new, but necessary approach in bioethics. This need is particularly felt in dental education and establishing a curriculum specifically for dental ethics is a challenging task. Although certain topics such as informed consent and patient rights can be considered to be of equal importance in both fields, a number of ethical issues in dental practice are only remotely—if at all—relevant for medical practice. (...)

    Assessment of Knowledge and Attitudes of Physicians Serving Pediatric Patients on Children›s Rights and Informed Consent in Children.Gürkan Sert, Can Ilgın, Elif Samiye Duru, Canan Kalmaz, Gizem Karagöl, Janda Hasso, Refia Katmer & Sena Ecin - 2018 - Türkiye Biyoetik Dergisi 5 (2):48-63.
    INTRODUCTION[|]The practice of medicine has evolved from old approach, in which all decisions for the patient are taken by physician, to a new approach, which includes patients to the medical decision-making process and endorses informed consent of the patients. In addition to healthcare professionals and patients, parents or legal representatives are stakeholders in the informed consent process of children. The knowledge and attitudes of physicians and medical school students about the informed consent period in children are important for the effectiveness (...)

    General Comment No. 22 (2016) on the Right to Sexual and Reproductive Health.Gürkan Sert, İrem Narman, Oktay Erkan, Özge Emre, Ebru Özden, Naz Tursun & Yunus Başar - 2020 - Türkiye Biyoetik Dergisi 6 (2):65-81.
    The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights was signed by Turkey in 2000 and has been in force since September 23rd, 2003. For this reason, the Covenant is considered as act of parliament in our domestic law, and unlike the general procedure of application of the law, it can not be alleged to contradict the Constitution. The article 12 of the Covenant defines the right to health and its content. In the article 12 of the Covenant, in its (...)
