A Survey of Medical Ethics: From Truthtelling to AID
Hastings Center Report. 1982 Apr; 12(2): 2-3.
Southern Illinois University's School of Medicine sent a questionnaire to Illinois physicians asking them to estimate how frequently they encountered 25 ethical issues. The 800 respondents ranked truthtelling first, followed by informed consent, pain control, confidentiality, and professional etiquette. They ranked lowest such issues as therapeutic experimentation, organ transplantation, hemodialysis selection, euthanasia, and artificial insemination. The doctors also added some items to the list, including children's rights and unnecessary surgery. (KIE abstract)
