    A qualitative interview study of Australian physicians on defensive practice and low value care: “it’s easier to talk about our fear of lawyers than to talk about our fear of looking bad in front of each other”.Jesse Jansen, Briony Johnston & Nola M. Ries - 2022 - BMC Medical Ethics 23 (1):1-14.
    BackgroundDefensive practice occurs when physicians provide services, such as tests, treatments and referrals, mainly to reduce their perceived legal or reputational risks, rather than to advance patient care. This behaviour is counter to physicians’ ethical responsibilities, yet is widely reported in surveys of doctors in various countries. There is a lack of qualitative research on the drivers of defensive practice, which is needed to inform strategies to prevent this ethically problematic behaviour.MethodsA qualitative interview study investigated the views and experiences of (...)

    Handling ethical, legal and social issues in birth cohort studies involving genetic research: responses from studies in six countries.Nola M. Ries, Jane LeGrandeur & Timothy Caulfield - 2010 - BMC Medical Ethics 11 (1):4.
    Research involving minors has been the subject of much ethical debate. The growing number of longitudinal, pediatric studies that involve genetic research present even more complex challenges to ensure appropriate protection of children and families as research participants. Long-term studies with a genetic component involve collection, retention and use of biological samples and personal information over many years. Cohort studies may be established to study specific conditions (e.g. autism, asthma) or may have a broad aim to research a range of (...)

    Including People with Dementia in Research: An Analysis of Australian Ethical and Legal Rules and Recommendations for Reform.Michael Lowe, Katie A. Thompson & Nola M. Ries - 2017 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 14 (3):359-374.
    Research is crucial to advancing knowledge about dementia, yet the burden of the disease currently outpaces research activity. Research often excludes people with dementia and other cognitive impairments because researchers and ethics committees are concerned about issues related to capacity, consent, and substitute decision-making. In Australia, participation in research by people with cognitive impairment is governed by a national ethics statement and a patchwork of state and territorial laws that have widely varying rules. We contend that this legislative variation precludes (...)

    Elder abuse and lawyers’ ethical responsibilities: incorporating screening into practice.Nola M. Ries - 2018 - Legal Ethics 21 (1):23-45.
    ABSTRACTElder abuse is a serious and under-detected problem. Law reform agencies and legal profession regulatory authorities have called for action to ensure that lawyers meet their ethical obligations to older clients, including identifying and acting on risk factors for abuse. Screening tools to detect situations of elder abuse exist, but they are targeted mainly at health and social care practitioners. Drawing on international literature, this article identifies and discusses screening tools that could be adapted for use by legal professionals. Three (...)
