    Several studies show that healthcare professionals need to communicate inter-professionally in order to manage ethical difficulties. A model of clinical ethics support inspired by Habermas’ theory of discourse ethics has been developed by our research group. In this version of CES sessions healthcare professionals meet inter-professionally to communicate and reflect on ethical difficulties in a cooperative manner with the aim of reaching communicative agreement or reflective consensus. In order to understand the course of action during CES, the aim of this (...)

    Are Physicians’ Estimations of Future Events Value-Impregnated? Cross-Sectional Study of Double Intentions When Providing Treatment That Shortens a Dying Patient’s Life.Anders Rydvall, Niklas Juth, Mikael Sandlund & Niels Lynøe - 2014 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 17 (3):397-402.
    The aim of the present study was to corroborate or undermine a previously presented conjecture that physicians’ estimations of others’ opinions are influenced by their own opinions. We used questionnaire based cross-sectional design and described a situation where an imminently dying patient was provided with alleviating drugs which also shortened life and, additionally, were intended to do so. We asked what would happen to physicians’ own trust if they took the action described, and also what the physician estimated would happen (...)

    Values at Stake at the End of Life: Analyses of Personal Preferences Among Swedish Physicians.Niels Lynøe, Anna Lindblad, Ingemar Engström, Mikael Sandlund & Niklas Juth - forthcoming - Clinical Ethics:147775092210773.
    Background Physician-assisted suicide is a controversial issue and has sometimes raised emotion-laden reactions. Against this backdrop, we have analyzed how Swedish physicians are reasoning about physician-assisted suicide if it were to be legalized. Methods and participants We conducted a cross-sectional study and analyzed 819 randomly selected physicians’ responses from general practitioners, geriatricians, internists, oncologists, psychiatrists, surgeons, and all palliativists. Apart from the main questions about their attitude toward physician-assisted suicide, we also asked what would happen with the respondents’ own trust (...)
