...We believe that applying the conceptual framework and practical strategies of preventive medicine to clinical ethics would improve the way in which physicians think about ethical conflicts or quandaries in patient care. After briefly discussing the current emphasis in clinical ethics on the resolution of ethical quandaries and considering the limitations of this approach, we will describe how the use of a "preventive-medicine" model in clinical ethics may improve patient care and contribute to the development of public policy and research related to clinical ethics.
