    Outcomes of Moral Case Deliberation - the development of an evaluation instrument for clinical ethics support (the Euro-MCD).Mia Svantesson, Jan Karlsson, Pierre Boitte, Jan Schildman, Linda Dauwerse, Guy Widdershoven, Reidar Pedersen, Martijn Huisman & Bert Molewijk - 2014 - BMC Medical Ethics 15 (1):30.
    Clinical ethics support, in particular Moral Case Deliberation, aims to support health care providers to manage ethically difficult situations. However, there is a lack of evaluation instruments regarding outcomes of clinical ethics support in general and regarding Moral Case Deliberation (MCD) in particular. There also is a lack of clarity and consensuses regarding which MCD outcomes are beneficial. In addition, MCD outcomes might be context-sensitive. Against this background, there is a need for a standardised but flexible outcome evaluation instrument. The (...)

    Prevalence and characteristics of moral case deliberation in Dutch health care.Linda Dauwerse, Margreet Stolper, Guy Widdershoven & Bert Molewijk - 2014 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 17 (3):365-375.
    The attention for Moral case deliberation has increased over the past years. Previous research on MCD is often written from the perspective of MCD experts or MCD participants and we lack a more distant view to the role of MCD in Dutch health care institutions in general. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the state of the art concerning MCD in the Netherlands. As part of a larger national study on clinical ethics support in the (...)

    Morality in the mundane: Specific needs for ethics support in elderly care.Linda Dauwerse, Sandra van der Dam & Tineke Abma - 2012 - Nursing Ethics 19 (1):91-103.
    Ethics support is called for to improve the quality of care in elderly institutions. Various forms of ethics support are presented, but the needs for ethics support remain unknown. Using a mixed-methods design, this article systematically investigates the specific needs for ethics support in elderly care. The findings of two surveys, two focus groups and 17 interviews demonstrate that the availability of ethics support is limited. There is a need for ethics support, albeit not unconditionally. Advice-based forms of ethics support (...)

    Triad collaboration in psychiatry: Privacy and confidentiality revisited.Elleke Landeweer, Tineke A. Abma, Linda Dauwerse & Guy A. M. Widdershoven - 2011 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 4 (1):121-139.
    Within psychiatry, patients, family, and professionals are involved and interrelated. Yet it is not easy for healthcare professionals to involve family actively in patient care. Taking a feminist perspective, we investigate why health-care professionals experience ambivalence in involving family in attempts to reduce seclusion, suggesting how they can improve family involvement by adopting a relational view on autonomy. Professionals should view patients not only in terms of individual autonomy and rights, but also in terms of relations and dependencies that need (...)

    Implicit and Explicit Clinical Ethics Support in The Netherlands: A Mixed Methods Overview Study. [REVIEW]Linda Dauwerse, Froukje Weidema, Tineke Abma, Bert Molewijk & Guy Widdershoven - 2014 - HEC Forum 26 (2):95-109.
    Internationally, the prevalence of clinical ethics support (CES) in health care has increased over the years. Previous research on CES focused primarily on ethics committees and ethics consultation, mostly within the context of hospital care. The purpose of this article is to investigate the prevalence of different kinds of CES in various Dutch health care domains, including hospital care, mental health care, elderly care and care for people with an intellectual disability. A mixed methods design was used including two survey (...)

    Recently, there has been increased interest in the involvement of family members in treating psychiatric patients who are involuntarily admitted into mental hospitals (Goodwin and Happel 2006; Wilkinson and McAndrew 2008). Family is, for instance, expected to be of use in preventing escalations and aggression on the wards by giving information about patient needs and providing support to the patient. Yet, in practice, family is not routinely involved in the treatment process, and is not even regularly informed about situations (Marshall (...)
