    La Frontera: Responsibly Managing Borders and Boundaries in Clinical Ethics.L. B. Mccullough - 2010 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 35 (1):1-6.
    The papers in the 2010 “Clinical Ethics” number of the Journal of Medicine and Philosophy explore issues along La Frontera, the borders and boundaries of clinical ethics. The first three papers in this “Clinical Ethics” number of the Journal explore borders and boundaries drawn within clinical ethics, concerning the moral standing of complementary and alternative medicine, palliative sedation, and induced abortion and feticide. The fourth and fifth papers explore the borders and boundaries between research ethics and clinical ethics.

    Responsibly Counselling Women About the Clinical Management of Pregnancies Complicated by Severe Fetal Anomalies.F. Chervenak & L. B. McCullough - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (7):397-398.
    Heuser, Eller and Byrne provide important descriptive ethics data about how physicians counsel women on the clinical management of pregnancies complicated by severe fetal anomalies. The authors present an account of what such counselling ought to be based on, the ethical concept of the fetus as a patient and the professional responsibility model of obstetric ethics. When there is certainty about the diagnosis and either a very high probability of either death as the outcome of the anomaly or survival with (...)

    Respect for Autonomy and Medical Paternalism Reconsidered.L. B. McCullough & Alan W. Cross - 1985 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 6 (3).
    We offer a critique of one prominent understanding of the principle of respect for autonomy and of analyses of medical paternalism based on that understanding. Our main critique is that understanding respect for autonomy as respect for freedom from interference is mistaken because it is overly influenced by four-alarm cases, because it fails to appreciate the full dimensions of legal self-determination (one of its main sources), because it conflates the research and therapeutic settings, and because it fails to appreciate themes (...)

    Arboriculture in Clinical Ethics: Using Philosophical Critical Appraisal to Clear Away Underbrush in Ethical Analysis and Argument.L. B. Mccullough - 2011 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 36 (1):1-5.
    This paper introduces the 2011 number of the Journal on Clinical Ethics. Philosophical critical appraisal is essential for the success of philosophical analysis and argument in clinical ethics. To clear away conceptual underbrush, papers in this Clinical Ethics number of the Journal address genetic engineering, conscience-based objections to forms of health care, placebos, and preventing exploitation of patients to be recruited to become research subjects.

    Rethinking the Conceptual and Empirical Foundations of Clinical Ethics.L. B. McCullough - 2008 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 33 (1):1-5.
    The five papers in the 2008 “Clinical Ethics” number of the journal address the conceptual and empirical foundations of clinical ethics. Three articles take up the concept of professionalism in medicine, exploring its possibilities and implications. The fourth article provides a distinctive, phenomenological account of the “placebo effect,” a vexing topic of surprising durability in the clinical setting. The final article, a systematic review of the qualitative literature on bedside rationing of resources, creates an empirical foundation for philosophical analysis and (...)

    Critical Appraisal of Clinical Judgment: An Essential Dimension of Clinical Ethics.L. B. McCullough - 2013 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 38 (1):1-5.
    The morally responsible practice of clinical medicine depends on many factors, the integrity of clinical judgment chief among them. Responsible clinical judgment requires that it be deliberative. The disciplines of the humanities, all of which contribute to clinical ethics—as the papers that follow illustrate—teach that deliberative reasoning includes critical self-awareness and self-scrutiny. Critical appraisal proves essential to achieving both. The papers in the 2013 Clinical Ethics number of the Journal provide distinctive critical appraisals of clinical judgment: concepts of race; narrative; (...)

    Responsibly Managing Uncertainties In Clinical Ethics.L. B. McCullough - 2012 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 37 (1):1-5.
    It is well-recognized that uncertainty is an endemic feature and limitation of clinical judgment and practice that cannot be eliminated in many cases. Among the tasks of clinical ethics is the responsible management of uncertainties, first articulated in E. Haavi Morreim’s very nice concept of the "moral management of medical uncertainty." The papers in the 2012 Clinical Ethics issue of the Journal provide philosophically innovative and clinically applicable accounts of the varieties of uncertainty in clinical medicine and therefore in clinical (...)

    Planned Home Birth in the United States and Professionalism: A Critical Assessment.F. A. Chervenak, L. B. McCullough, A. Grünebaum, B. Arabin, M. I. Levene & R. L. Brent - 2013 - Journal of Clinical Ethics 24 (3):184-191.
    Planned home birth has been considered by some to be consistent with professional responsibility in patient care. This article critically assesses the ethical and scientific justification for this view and shows it to be unjustified. We critically assess recent statements by professional associations of obstetricians, one that sanctions and one that endorses planned home birth. We base our critical appraisal on the professional responsibility model of obstetric ethics, which is based on the ethical concept of medicine from the Scottish and (...)

    The Management of Instability and Incompleteness: Clinical Ethics and Abstract Expressionism.L. B. McCullough - 1997 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 22 (1):1-10.
    Central concepts and consensus views in clinical ethics are marked by instability. The papers in this number of the Journal take up two such central concepts, quality of life and moral status, and two such consensus views, that germ-line gene transfer should not be undertaken for the purposes of enhancement of human traits and that the ethical obligation of physicians to treat HIV infected patients rests on consent of the physician. One outcome of these philosophical investigations is that these two (...)
