    Advance Directives: The New Zealand Context.Pauline Wareham, Antoinette McCallin & Kate Diesfeld - 2005 - Nursing Ethics 12 (4):349-359.
    Advance directives convey consumers’ wishes about accepting or refusing future treatment if they become incompetent. They are designed to communicate a competent consumer’s perspective regarding the preferred treatment, should the consumer later become incompetent. There are associated ethical issues for health practitioners and this article considers the features that are relevant to nurses.

    Neither Consenting nor Protesting: An Ethical Analysis of a Man with Autism.K. Diesfeld - 2000 - Journal of Medical Ethics 26 (4):277-281.
    This article critically examines the 25 June 1998 decision by the House of Lords regarding the psychiatric admission of a man with autism.1 Mr L was able neither to consent to, nor refuse, that admission and the disposition of his case illuminates the current debate regarding best interests of vulnerable adults by the judiciary and the psychiatric profession.

    Disability Matters in Medical Law.K. Diesfeld - 2001 - Journal of Medical Ethics 27 (6):388-392.
    The British Parliament stated that health services would be covered by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 . However, when people with disabilities are at their most vulnerable, for example when in hospital or subject to medical procedures, the antidiscrimination law fails them. A review of cases indicates that when people with disabilities are subject to medical treatment, the legislative protections are allowed to vanish.
