    The Near-Failure of Advance Directives: Why They Should Not Be Abandoned Altogether, but Their Role Radically Reconsidered.Marta Spranzi & Véronique Fournier - 2016 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 19 (4):563-568.
    Advance directives have been hailed for two decades as the best way to safeguard patients’ autonomy when they are totally or partially incompetent. In many national contexts they are written into law and they are mostly associated with end-of-life decisions. Although advocates and critics of ADs exchange relevant empirical and theoretical arguments, the debate is inconclusive. We argue that this is so for good reasons: the ADs’ project is fraught with tensions, and this is the reason why they are both (...)

    The Normative Relevance of Cases.Marta Spranzi - 2012 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 21 (4):481-492.
    Cases—be they real or fictional—are commonplace both in the medical ethics literature and in the public media. Cases take on a variety of forms: from streamlined to book length narratives. They also serve a variety of different purposes, from illustration, to decision making, and from debunking to heuristics. Drawing on the rhetorical analysis of « exemplum », I shall describe what cases are, and what their role is in the practice of clinical ethics. I identify two basic ways in which (...)

    Withdrawal of Artificial Nutrition and Hydration in Neonatal Intensive Care: Parents’ and Healthcare Practitioners’ Views.Véronique Fournier, Elisabeth Belghiti, Laurence Brunet & Marta Spranzi - 2017 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 20 (3):365-371.
    Withdrawing Artificial Nutrition and Hydration in the neonatal intensive care units has long been controversial. In France, the practice has become a legal option since 2005. But even though, the question remains as to what the stakeholders’ experience is, and whether they consider it ethically appropriate. In order to contribute to the debate, we initiated a study in 2009 to evaluate parental and health care professionals perspectives, after they experienced WAHN for a newborn. The study included 25 cases from 5 (...)

    The French Bioethics Debate: Norms, Values and Practices. [REVIEW]Véronique Fournier & Marta Spranzi - 2013 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 16 (1):41-44.
    In 1994, France passed bioethics laws regulating assisted reproductive technologies, organ donations and prenatal diagnosis. These laws were based upon a few principles considered as fundamental: the anonymity and gratuity of all donations concerning the elements of the human body, free and informed consent, and the interdiction of all commercial transactions on the human body. These laws have been the object of heated debates which continue to this day. On the basis on a few clinical ethics studies conducted by the (...)

    Clinical Ethics and Values: How Do Norms Evolve From Practice?Marta Spranzi - 2013 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 16 (1):93-103.
    Bioethics laws in France have just undergone a revision process. The bioethics debate is often cast in terms of ethical principles and norms resisting emerging social and technological practices. This leads to the expression of confrontational attitudes based on widely differing interpretations of the same principles and values, and ultimately results in a deadlock. In this paper I would like to argue that focusing on values, as opposed to norms and principles, provides an interesting perspective on the evolution of norms. (...)

    Humanity and "Ordinary Abuse": Learning From Hospital Patients' Letters of Complaint.Marta Spranzi - 2018 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 61 (2):264-278.
    In 2009, an influential and remarkable report to the French highest health authorities written by Claire Compagnon, a patients' advocate, and Véronique Ghadi, a legal scholar, has brought to public attention a phenomenon that had gone unnoticed in medical ethics: the report's authors called it "ordinary abuse".1 They argue that the term describes a widespread and invisible form of mistreatment in the hospital setting, which they distinguish from abuse proper, a phenomenon, they argue, which is far less common and controversial.

  16. The French Bioethics Public Consultation and the Anonymity Doctrine: Empirical Ethics and Normatice Assumptions.Marta Spranzi & Laurence Brunet - 2015 - Monash Bioethics Review 33 (1):18-28.
    The French bioethics laws of 1994 contain the principles of the anonymity and non commodification of all donations of body parts and products including gametes in medically assisted reproduction. The two revisions of the law, in 2004 and 2011 have upheld the rule. In view of the latest revision process, the French government organized a large public consultation in 2009. Within the event a “consensus conference” was held in Rennes about different aspects of assisted reproduction. In what follows we shall (...)

    When Patients' Values Challenge Professional Integrity: Which Way Out?Marta Spranzi - 2016 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 59 (3):326-336.
    An elderly patient in his early eighties is hospitalized in a long-term facility, with advanced Alzheimer disease. He is otherwise relatively strong and free from other life-threatening conditions, except for the fact that he has difficulties swallowing. After several episodes of acute aspiration pneumonia doctors prescribe “strict fast”: only hydration through an IV catheter should be administered during the night, in order to relieve the feeling of hunger, provide comfort, and stave off death. The patient is surrounded by a warm (...)
