    Truth-Telling in Cancer: Examining the Cultural Incompatibility Argument in Turkey.Tolga Guven - 2010 - Nursing Ethics 17 (2):159-166.
    This article aims to examine critically the ‘cultural incompatibility’ argument, which asserts that disclosure of cancer-related information to patients is incompatible with Turkey’s cultural context. For this purpose, a brief overview of the approach to truth-telling in Turkey will first be provided, followed by the claims of two different Turkish authors on the issue and a critical analysis of their approach. It will be contended that this argument has actually been formulated with paternalistic concerns and it may be playing an (...)

    What Do Patients Expect From Their Physicians? Qualitative Research on the Ethical Aspects of Patient Statements.Mehmet Çetin, Muharrem Uçar, Tolga Güven, Adnan Ataç & Mustafa Özer - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (2):112-116.
    This study aimed to examine the thoughts and expectations of patients receiving healthcare from their physicians and evaluate the ethical aspects of these thoughts and expectations. To determine the ethical aspects of the thoughts and expectations of patients, an open-ended question was asked on the web page of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) Health Care Command, which is accessible to the users of the TAF intranet system (the internet system used within TAF institutions). The participants were asked to express their (...)

    Examining the Ethico-Legal Aspects of the Right to Refuse Treatment in Turkey.Gurkan Sert & Tolga Guven - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (10):632-635.
    This paper examines the ethico-legal problems regarding the right to refuse treatment in Turkey's healthcare system. We discuss these problems in the light of a recent case that was directly reported to us. We first summarise the experience of a chronically dependent patient (as recounted by her daughter) and her family during their efforts to refuse treatment and receive palliative care only. This is followed by a summary of the legal framework governing the limits of the right to refuse treatment (...)

    Advance Directives in Turkey's Cultural Context: Examining the Potential Benefits for the Implementation of Patient Rights.Tolga Guven & Gurkan Sert - 2010 - Bioethics 24 (3):127-133.
    Advance directives are not a part of the healthcare service in Turkey. This may be related with the fact that paternalism is common among the healthcare professionals in the country, and patients are not yet integrated in the decision-making process adequately. However, starting from the enactment of the Regulation of Patient Rights in 1998, this situation started to change. While the paternalist tradition still appears to be strong in Turkey, the Ministry of Health has been taking concrete measures in the (...)

    Towards a Specific Approach to Education in Dental Ethics: A Proposal for Organising the Topics of Biomedical Ethics for Dental Education: Table 1.Sefik Gorkey, Tolga Guven & Gurkan Sert - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (1):60-63.
    Understanding dental ethics as a field separate from its much better known counterpart, medical ethics, is a relatively new, but necessary approach in bioethics. This need is particularly felt in dental education and establishing a curriculum specifically for dental ethics is a challenging task. Although certain topics such as informed consent and patient rights can be considered to be of equal importance in both fields, a number of ethical issues in dental practice are only remotely—if at all—relevant for medical practice. (...)
