Incentives can spur COVID-19 vaccination uptake.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the Un... Klüver H, Hartmann F et. al.

Aug 21st, 2021 - Recent evidence suggests that vaccination hesitancy is too high in many countries to sustainably contain COVID-19.

Our results suggest that all t...

Too Important for the Bureaucrats: Rethinking Risk and Regulatory Presumptions in Times...
American Journal of Law & Medicine; Toomey J

Aug 19th, 2021 - The posture of American regulation of medicine is negative-we assume that a new drug is unsafe and ineffective until it is proven safe and effective.1 This regulatory posture is a heuristic normative principle, a specific instance of the so-called precautionary principle in public health law.2 It is defensible, if debatable, in many ordinary circumstances.3 But like many normative heuristics, t...

Aug 19th, 2021 - In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, many states and countries have adopted public health restrictions on activities previously considered commonplace: crossing state borders, eating indoors, gathering together, and even leaving one's home. These policies often focus on specific activities or groups, rather than imposing the same limits across the board. In this Article, I consider t...

Aug 7th, 2021 - Babylon 5, like other great sci-fi franchises, touched on important ethical questions. Two ethical conundrums relating to the series' main characters included providing life-saving treatment to a child against their parents' wishes and potential involvement with a highly beneficial but morally dubious medication.

Ethical Duties of Nephrologists: When Patients Are Nonadherent to Treatment.
Seminars in Nephrology; Parsons JA, Taylor DM et. al.

Aug 1st, 2021 - When providing care, nephrologists are subject to various ethical duties. Beyond the Hippocratic notion of doing no harm, nephrologists also have duties to respect their patients' autonomy and dignity, to meet their patients' care goals in the least invasive way, to act impartially, and, ultimately, to do what is (clinically) beneficial for their patients. Juggling these often-conflicting dutie...
