  • Conscience as a Regulatory Function: An Integrative Theory Put to the Test. [Journal Article]
    Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol 2019; :306624X19881918Verkade M, Karsten J, … Schalkwijk F
  • The subject of this study is an integrative theory of the conscience. According to this theory, conscience is operationalised as a regulatory function of one's own behaviour and identity, resulting from an interplay of empathy, self-conscious emotions such as guilt and shame, and moral reasoning. This study aimed to evaluate conscience in an adult forensic psychiatric sample by assessing the unde…
  • [Autoimmune encephalitis. Anti-NMDA receptor and new immunophenotypes]. [Journal Article]
    Medicina (B Aires) 2019; 79 Suppl 3:54-59Erazo Torricelli R
  • Autoimmune encephalitis (AE) is defined as neurological syndromes of subacute installation of compromise of consciousness, alteration of working memory and psychiatric disorders associated with abnormal movements and epileptic seizures and that are produced by the action of anti-neuronal antibodies. They bind to neurotransmitter receptors or membrane proteins. Antibody to NMDAR is the origin of t…
  • Arthur Guedel and the Ascendance of Anesthesia: A Teacher, Tinkerer, and Transformer. [Journal Article]
    J Anesth Hist 2019; 5(3):85-92Drew BA
  • At the beginning of the twentieth century, anesthesia was an emerging field without permanent departments, exclusive practitioners, or academic residency programs. Instead, surgeons and nurses administered anesthetic gases in an ad-hoc fashion, exposing patients to the perilous risks of general anesthesia. Dr. Arthur Guedel was a general practitioner from rural Indiana who unexpectedly became an …
  • Guideline Implementation: Sterile Technique. [Journal Article]
    AORN J 2019; 110(4):415-425Link T
  • Establishing and maintaining a sterile field to help prevent surgical site infections requires specific knowledge and skills and is among the most important responsibilities of the perioperative RN. Perioperative RNs should remain vigilant in monitoring the sterile field, communicate when a break in sterile technique occurs, and collaborate with other surgical team members to correct the break in…
  • Conscientious Objection and Clinical Judgement: The Right to Refuse to Harm. [Journal Article]
    New Bioeth 2019; 25(3):248-261Saad TC
  • This paper argues that healthcare aims at the good of health, that this pursuit of the good necessitates conscience, and that conscience is required in every practical judgement, including clinical judgment. Conscientious objection in healthcare is usually restricted to a handful of controversial ends (e.g. abortion, euthanasia, contraception), yet the necessity of conscience in all clinical judg…
  • Conscience and the Way of Medicine. [Journal Article]
    Perspect Biol Med 2019; 62(3):560-575Curlin FA, Tollefsen CO
  • Disputes about conscientious refusals reflect, at root, two rival accounts of what medicine is for and what physicians reasonably profess. On what we call the "provider of services model," a practitioner of medicine is professionally obligated to provide interventions that patients request so long as the interventions are legal, feasible, and are consistent with well-being as the patient perceive…
  • Conscientious Objection, Moral Integrity, and Professional Obligations. [Journal Article]
    Perspect Biol Med 2019; 62(3):543-559Wicclair MR
  • Lauris Kaldjian defends conscientious objection against opponents who claim that there is no place for a physician's personal moral beliefs in the practice of medicine. This essay argues that Kaldjian's defense of conscientious objection relies on a controversial "thick" conception of conscience that opponents may justifiably question. It offers a defense that relies on a relatively "thin" concep…
