    Scientific Dishonesty--Questionnaire to Doctoral Students in Sweden.T. Nilstun, R. Lofmark & A. Lundqvist - 2010 - Journal of Medical Ethics 36 (5):315-318.
    ‘Scientific dishonesty’ implies the fabrication, falsification or plagiarism in proposing, performing or reviewing research or in reporting research results. A questionnaire was given to postgraduate students at the medical faculties in Sweden who attended a course in research ethics during the academic year 2008/2009 and 58% answered (range 29%–100%). Less than one-third of the respondents wrote that they had heard about scientific dishonesty in the previous 12 months. Pressure, concerning in what order the author should be mentioned, was reported by (...)

    Teaching Medical Ethics to Experienced Staff: Participants, Teachers and Method.T. Nilstun - 2001 - Journal of Medical Ethics 27 (6):409-412.
    Almost all articles on education in medical ethics present proposals for or describe experiences of teaching students in different health professions. Since experienced staff also need such education, the purpose of this paper is to exemplify and discuss educational approaches that may be used after graduation. As an example we describe the experiences with a five-day European residential course on ethics for neonatal intensive care personnel. In this multidisciplinary course, using a case-based approach, the aim was to enhance the participants' (...)

    Human Dignity in Paediatrics: The Effects of Health Care.Anita Lundqvist & Tore Nilstun - 2007 - Nursing Ethics 14 (2):215-228.
    Human dignity is grounded in basic human attributes such as life and self-respect. When people cannot stand up for themselves they may lose their dignity towards themselves and others. The aim of this study was to elucidate if dignity remains intact for family members during care procedures in a children’s hospital. A qualitative approach was adopted, using open non-participation observation. The findings indicate that dignity remains intact in family-centred care where all concerned parties encourage each other in a collaborative relationship. (...)

    Principles Help to Analyse But Often Give No Solution—Secondary Prevention After a Cardiac Event.Lars Westin & Tore Nilstun - 2006 - Health Care Analysis 14 (2):111-117.
    The aim of this paper is to investigate whether or not ethical conflicts can be identified, analysed and solved using ethical principles. The relation between the physician and the patient with ischemic heart disease (IHD) as life style changes are recommended in a secondary prevention program is used as an example. The principal persons affected (the patient and his or her spouse) and the ethical principles (respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice) are combined in a two dimensional model. The (...)

    Forgoing Treatment at the End of Life in 6 European Countries.Georg Bosshard, , Tore Nilstun, , Johan Bilsen, , Michael Norup, , Guido Miccinesi, , Johannes J. M. van Delden, Karin Faisst, , Agnes van der Heide & for the European End-of-Life - unknown
    Modern medicine provides unprecedented opportunities in diagnostics and treatment. However, in some situations at the end of a patient’s life, many physicians refrain from using all possible measures to prolong life. We studied the incidence of different types of treatment withheld or withdrawn in 6 European countries and analyzed the main background characteristics.

    Cesarean Delivery on Maternal Request: Can the Ethical Problem Be Solved by the Principlist Approach?Tore Nilstun, Marwan Habiba, Göran Lingman, Rodolfo Saracci, Monica Da Frè & Marina Cuttini - 2008 - BMC Medical Ethics 9 (1):11-.
    In this article, we use the principlist approach to identify, analyse and attempt to solve the ethical problem raised by a pregnant woman's request for cesarean delivery in absence of medical indications.We use two different types of premises: factual (facts about cesarean delivery and specifically attitudes of obstetricians as derived from the EUROBS European study) and value premises (principles of beneficence and non-maleficence, respect for autonomy and justice).Beneficence/non-maleficence entails physicians' responsibility to minimise harms and maximise benefits. Avoiding its inherent risks (...)

    Epidemiology and Moral Philosophy.C. G. Westrin, T. Nilstun, B. Smedby & B. Haglund - 1992 - Journal of Medical Ethics 18 (4):193-196.
    To an increasing extent ethical controversies affect and sometimes obstruct public health work and epidemiological research. In order to improve communication between the concerned parties a model for identification and analysis of ethical conflicts in individual-based research has been worked out in co-operation between epidemiologists and moral philosophers. The model has two dimensions. One dimension specifies relevant ethical principles (as beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy and justice). The other dimension specifies the groups of persons involved in the conflict under consideration (for example: (...)

    Noddings's Caring Ethics Theory Applied in a Paediatric Setting.Anita Lundqvist & Tore Nilstun - 2009 - Nursing Philosophy 10 (2):113-123.
    Since the 1990s, numerous studies on the relationship between parents and their children have been reported on in the literature and implemented as a philosophy of care in most paediatric units. The purpose of this article is to understand the process of nurses' care for children in a paediatric setting by using Noddings's caring ethics theory. Noddings's theory is in part described from a theoretical perspective outlining the basic idea of the theory followed by a critique of her work. Important (...)

    The aim of this paper is to present and discuss nurses’ and physicians’ comments in a questionnaire relating to patients’ transition from curative treatment to palliative care. The four-page questionnaire relating to experiences of and attitudes towards communication, decision-making, documentation and responsibility of nurses and physicians and towards the competence of patients was developed and sent to a random sample of 1672 nurses and physicians of 10 specialties. The response rate was 52% , and over one-third made comments. The respondents (...)
