The Nazi doctors and the Nuremberg Code : human rights in human experimentation ( Book )
11 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The atrocities committed by Nazi physicians and researchers during World War II prompted the development of the Nuremberg Code to define the ethics of modern medical experimentation utilizing human subjects. Since its enunciation, the Code has been viewed as one of the cornerstones of modern bioethical thought. The sources and ramifications of this important document are thoroughly discussed in this book by a distinguished roster of contemporary professionals from the fields of history, philosophy, medicine, and law. Contributors also include the chief prosecutor of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal and a survivor of the Mengele twin experiments. The book sheds light on keenly debated issues of both science and jurisprudence, including the ethics of human experimentation; the doctrine of informed consent; and the Code's impact on today's international human rights agenda. The historical setting of the Code's creation, some modern parallels, and the current attitude of German physicians toward the crimes of the Nazi era are discussed in early chapters. The book progresses to a powerful account of the Doctors' Trial at Nuremberg, its resulting verdict, and the Code's development. The Code's contemporary influence on both American and international law is examined in its historical context and discussed in terms of its universality: Are the foundational ethics of the Code as valid today as when it was originally penned? The editors conclude with a chapter on foreseeable future developments and a proposal for an international covenant on human experimentation enforced by an international court. A major work in medical law and ethics, this volume provides stimulating, provocative reading for physicians, legal professionals, bioethicists, historians, biomedical researchers, and concerned laypersons
Children as research subjects : science, ethics, and law ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Is using children as research subjects ever justified? Are there limits to such use? Does the fact that children are medically and psychosocially different from adults have implications for research? What can we learn from the history of the use and abuse of children as research subjects? Do parents have the authority to volunteer their children for research projects? How should children participate in the decision to be involved in research? How should research risks be assessed and balanced? These perplexing questions and others are addressed by a distinguished group of experts in the field of biomedical and behavioral research with children. This book adopts an integrated multi-disciplinary approach which uses science, ethics, and law as guides for exploring these most difficult issues. The tension between acquiring important new knowledge and fulfilling the obligation to protect children from exploitation and harm is a recurring theme. As the first book to be devoted solely to the science, ethics, and law of research with children, it is an indispensable resource to physicians, psychologists, educators, lawyers, ethicists, Institutional Review Board members, child advocates and others involved in performing or reviewing research with children
Meta medical ethics : the philosophical foundations of bioethics ( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What is Bioethics? What are its goals and theoretical assumptions? Is it a unique discipline? Must medical ethics be grounded in clinical experience? How can ethical inquiry inform medicine's theory and practice? Must one have a definition of medicine before one can have a medical ethic? Does medicine have a unique or demarcating body of knowledge, methodology, or philosophy? These troubling questions are addressed by a distinguished roster of philosophers, theologians, lawyers, social scientists, physicians and scientists. The unifying theme of this text is a philosophical exploration of the history, nature, scope and foundations of bioethics. There is a critical evaluation of principled, communitarian, legal, narrative and feminist approaches. The book's interdisciplinary focus allows for a lively dialogue which includes papers and accompanying commentaries. Audience: Philosophers of science and medical ethicists, physicians, lawyers, policy makers

Problematika človekovih pravic v javnem zdravstvu odkriva zelo raznolike načine, metode in strategije delovanja, s katerimi naj bi izboljšali zdravje svetovnega prebivalstva, kar je rdeča nit vseh zbranih prispevkov. Okolje, v katerem živimo, zelo vpliva na zdravje, zato bi se morali v večji meri posvetiti zmanjševanju razlik med tistimi, ki razpolagajo z višjimi standardi zdravja in kakovostnimi storitvami na tem področju, ter tistimi, ki so zaradi političnih, gospodarskih, družbenih ali kulturnih razlogov bolj izpostavljeni slabemu zdravju ter z vidika dostopnosti neustreznim storitvam. Pri preučevanju vzrokov in posledic teh neenakosti se odpirajo mnoga vprašanja v zvezi s predpisi in standardi o človekovih pravicah s posebnem poudarkom na pravnem in etičnem vidiku
