    The Role of the Principle of Double Effect in Ethics Education at US Medical Schools and its Potential Impact on Pain Management at the End of Life.Robert Macauley - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (3):174-178.
    Background Because opioids can suppress respiratory drive, the principle of double effect (PDE) has been used to justify their use for terminally ill patients. Recent studies, however, suggest that the risk of respiratory depression in typical end-of-life (EOL) situations may be overstated and that heightened concern for this rare occurrence can lead to inadequate treatment of pain. The purpose of this study is to examine the role of the PDE in medical school ethics education, with specific reference to its potential (...)

    Betting on CPR: A Modern Version of Pascal’s Wager.David Y. Harari & Robert C. Macauley - 2020 - Journal of Medical Ethics 46 (2):110-113.
    Many patients believe that cardiopulmonary resuscitation is more likely to be successful than it really is in clinical practice. Even when working with accurate information, some nevertheless remain resolute in demanding maximal treatment. They maintain that even if survival after cardiac arrest with CPR is extremely low, the fact remains that it is still greater than the probability of survival after cardiac arrest without CPR. Without realising it, this line of reasoning is strikingly similar to Pascal’s Wager, a Renaissance-era argument (...)

    The Hippocratic Underground: Civil Disobedience and Health Care Reform.Robert Macauley - 2005 - Hastings Center Report 35 (1):38-45.
    : Health care reform is bottled up. Socially responsible physicians, forced to curtail care to uninsured patients, should respond with organized, open defiance, by billing the costs of the care to the accounts of patients covered under Medicaid or Medicare. Reverse cost-shifting: maybe it could work, certainly it would be justified.

    The Ethics of Cultivated Gratitude.Robert Macauley - 2014 - HEC Forum 26 (4):343-348.
    Given narrow operating margins, health care organizations are increasingly relying on philanthropy to fund operations. Since individuals provide the majority of philanthropic support, many organizations have expanded their “grateful patient fundraising” programs to include current inpatients, both established donors as well as persons of wealth. While this is legally permissible under HIPAA, it raises substantial ethical concerns for potential coercion of vulnerable patients, as well as unequal care stemming from preferential treatment and provided “amenities.” While some have drawn the analogy (...)
