    Moving Beyond Marriage: Healthcare and the Social Safety Net for Families.Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2018 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 46 (3):636-643.
    This article teases out the relationship between family form and the state's social safety nets around healthcare, showing the deep unfairness of measuring social safety nets by whether a couple marries. By continuing to tie healthcare benefits to specific family structures, we perpetuate the “galloping” inequality marking America today.This article concludes that, whatever happens with the thousands of benefits given to married couples in other domains, social policy should move beyond marriage with respect to healthcare. Delinking support for healthcare coverage (...)

    Nanotechnology: The Challenge of Regulating Known Unknowns.Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (4):704-713.
    Nanotechnology is a subject about which we know less than we should, but probably more than we think we do at first glance. Like Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's “known unknowns,” we have learned enough to know what we should be concerned with. Glimmers of risk cropped up recently when German authorities recalled a bathroom cleansing product, “MagicNano,” that purported to contain nanosized particles and was on the market for only three days. More than one hundred people suffered severe respiratory problems (...)

    Nanotechnology: The Challenge of Regulating Known Unknowns.Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (4):704-713.
    Media reports of the health hazards posed by nano-sized particles have turned a white hot spotlight on the risks of nanotechnology. Worried about the risks posed to workers producing nano-materials, the Washington Post has labeled nanotechnology a “seat-of-the-pants occupational health experiment.” This article examines our emerging knowledge base about the hazards of two types of exposure: inhalation of NSPs and topical application of products containing NSPs. It argues that a clear-eyed evaluation of the benefits and risks of nanotechnology is made (...)

    Realizing Informed Consent in Times of Controversy: Lessons From the SUPPORT Study.Robert J. Morse & Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2016 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 44 (3):402-418.
    This Essay examines the elegantly simple idea that consent to medical treatment or participation in human research must be “informed” to be valid. It does so by using as a case study the controversial clinical research trial known as the Surfactant, Positive Pressure, and Oxygenation Randomized Trial. The Essay begins by charting, through case law and the adoption of the common rule, the evolution of duties to secure fully informed consent in both research and treatment. The Essay then utilizes the (...)

    HECs: Are They Evaluating Their Performance? [REVIEW]Robin Fretwell Wilson, Martha Neff-Smith, Donald Phillips & John C. Fletcher - 1993 - HEC Forum 5 (1):1-34.
    Although the incidence and composition of HECs has been well characterized, little is known about how HECs assess their performance. In order to describe the incidence of HEC self-evaluation, the methods HECs use to evaluate their performance, and the characteristics of HECs that influence self-evaluation, we surveyed the readers ofHospital Ethics. 290 HECs in 45 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and three Canadian provinces, completed questionnaires. Of the 241 HECs included in the data analysis, 97.9% had performed (...)

    When States Regulate Emergency Contraceptives Like Abortion, What Should Guide Disclosure?Cameron O'Brien Flynn & Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2015 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 43 (1):72-86.
    State laws dictating “informed consent” about surgical and chemical abortions sometimes ensnare emergency contraceptives, as the science surrounding EC shows. Courts evaluating mandated disclosures gravitate to professional norms rather than the information most women would value: basic factual information about EC so that they can decide for themselves whether to use these drugs.

    Reviews in Medical Ethics: Medicare: Where is the Common Sense? A Review of Medicare Meets Mephistopheles by David A. Hyman.David Blazina, Erin Willoughby & Robin Fretwell Wilson - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (4):821-825.
    In his deliciously funny book, Medicare Meets Mephistopheles, Professor David Hyman argues that Medicare corrupts our most base impulses. It urges us, for example, to grab for more than our fair share of benefits while offering providers “the prospect of staggering amounts of money – even as…actuaries were promising Congress that the Medicare program would be easily affordable.” Modeled on C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, Professor Hyman's satirical examination of Medicare takes the form of a memo to Satan from an (...)
