    In Defence of Moral Pluralism and Compromise in Health Care Networks.Kasper Raus, Eric Mortier & Kristof Eeckloo - 2018 - Health Care Analysis 26 (4):362-379.
    The organisation of health care is rapidly changing. There is a trend to move away from individual health care institutions towards transmural integrated care and interorganizational collaboration in networks. However, within such collaboration and network there is often likely to be a pluralism of values as different health care institutions often have very different values. For this paper, we examine three different models of how we believe institutions can come to collaborate in networks, and thus reap the potential benefits of (...)

    The patient perspective in health care networks.Kasper Raus, Eric Mortier & Kristof Eeckloo - 2018 - BMC Medical Ethics 19 (1):52.
    Health care organization is entering a new age. Focus is increasingly shifting from individual health care institutions to interorganizational collaboration and health care networks. Much hope is set on such networks which have been argued to improve economic efficiency and quality of care. However, this does not automatically mean they are always ethically justified. A relevant question that remains is what ethical obligations or duties one can ascribe to these networks especially because networks involve many risks. Due to their often (...)

    The Ethical and Clinical Importance of Measuring Consciousness in Continuously Sedated Patients.Sigrid Sterckx, Eric Mortier, Martine de Laat & Kasper Raus - 2014 - Journal of Clinical Ethics 25 (3):207-218.
    Continuous sedation at the end of life is a practice that has attracted a great deal of attention. An increasing number of guidelines on the proposed correct performance of the practice have been drafted. All of the guidelines stress the importance of using sedation in proportion to the severity of the patient’s symptoms, thus to reduce the patient’s consciousness no more than is absolutely necessary. As different patients can have different experiences of suffering, the amount of suffering should, ideally, be (...)

    Ethical issues in managing the COVID‐19 pandemic.Kasper Raus, Eric Mortier & Kristof Eeckloo - 2021 - Bioethics 35 (6):581-588.
    The COVID‐19 pandemic has had an immense and worldwide impact. In light of future pandemics or subsequent waves of COVID‐19 it is crucial to focus on the ethical issues that were and still are raised in this COVID‐19 crisis. In this paper, we look at issues that are raised in the testing and tracing of patients with COVID‐19. We do this by highlighting and expanding on an approach suggested by Fineberg that could serve as a public health approach. In this (...)
