    The Best Interest Standard: Same Name but Different Roles in Pediatric Bioethics and Child Rights Frameworks.Lainie Friedman Ross & Alissa Hurwitz Swota - 2017 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 60 (2):186-197.
    The "best interest of the child" standard is central to both pediatric bioethics and the child rights community. In pediatric bioethics in the United States, the best interest of the child standard is cited as the guidance principle for parental decision-making.1 Likewise, in the child rights community, the best interest of the child standard is "of paramount consideration" ). Both approaches also recognize parental rights and responsibilities and support a role for the maturing child in the decision-making process. Why, then, (...)

    Children like Baby G, born with complex chronic medical conditions that compromise function in the long term, are an increasing presence in tertiary-level neonatal intensive care units. The parents and health-care providers of these children are faced with profoundly difficult decisions. Whether severe congenital anomalies with poor prognosis are diagnosed antenatally or are discovered at the time of birth, the issues are vexing, and the impact decisions will have on everyone in the family is profound. What should such decisions be (...)

By providing guidance to those engaged in such endeavors and setting advance care planning in a global context, health care practitioners will be better able to care for their patients and achieve the noble goal of advance care planning_giving volume to (...)

    Advancing the Synergy Between Pediatric Bioethics and Child Rights.Alissa Swota, Jeffrey Goldhagen & Cheryl D. Lew - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):247-251.
    The manuscripts in this issue of Perspectives in Biology and Medicine reflect the work of an international group of pediatric bioethicists and child rights advocates who convened in March 2014 to pursue several questions related to the intersection of pediatric bioethics and child rights. The prequel for the Symposium involved several years of dialogue between the editors of this volume—dialogue through which it became clear that there was much to be learned about our respective disciplines and how they might inform (...)

    What Is a Parent to Do?: The Case of Baby G.Alissa Swota, Cheryl D. Lew & D. Micah Hester - 2015 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 58 (3):320-321.
    Born at 24 weeks gestation, Baby G now lies in a neonatal intensive care unit two months post-birth. He has pulmonary hypoplasia, congenital scoliosis, and swallowing issues that will require placement of a feeding tube, and bowel dystonia that interferes with his ability to absorb feedings. Shortly after birth, he experienced a cardiopulmonary arrest and now has obvious neurological impairments. As a result of incomplete development of his lungs and severe chronic lung disease, he cannot breathe on his own. Because (...)
