Patient Decision-Making: Medical Ethics and Mediation
Craig, Yvonne J.
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1996 Jun; 22(3): 164-167.
A review of medical ethics literature relating to the importance of the participation of patients in decision-making introduces the role of rights-based mediation as a voluntary process now being developed innovatively in America. This is discussed in relation to the theory of communicative ethics and moral personhood. References are then made to the work of medical ethics committees and the role of mediation within these. Finally it is suggested that mediation is part of an eirenic ethic already being used informally in good patient care, and that there is a case for developing it further.
