    Moral Distress: Inability to Act or Discomfort with Moral Subjectivity?Mark Repenshek - 2009 - Nursing Ethics 16 (6):734-742.
    Amidst the wealth of literature on the topic of moral distress in nursing, a single citation is ubiquitous, Andrew Jameton’s 1984 book Nursing practice. The definition Jameton formulated reads ‘... moral distress arises when one knows the right thing to do, but institutional constraints make it nearly impossible to pursue the right course of action’. Unfortunately, it appears that, despite the frequent use of Jameton’s definition of moral distress, the definition itself remains uncritically examined. It seems as if the context (...)

    Comprehensive Quality Assessment in Clinical Ethics.Joshua S. Crites, Flora Sheppard, Mark Repenshek, Janet Malek, Nico Nortjé, Matthew Kenney, Avery C. Glover, John Frye, Kristin Furfari, Evan G. DeRenzo, Cynthia Coleman, Andrea Chatburn & Thomas V. Cunningham - 2019 - Journal of Clinical Ethics 30 (3):284-296.
    Scholars and professional organizations in bioethics describe various approaches to “quality assessment” in clinical ethics. Although much of this work represents significant contributions to the literature, it is not clear that there is a robust and shared understanding of what constitutes “quality” in clinical ethics, what activities should be measured when tracking clinical ethics work, and what metrics should be used when measuring those activities. Further, even the most robust quality assessment efforts to date are idiosyncratic, in that they represent (...)

    Examining Quality and Value in Ethics Consultation Services.Mark Repenshek - 2018 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 18 (1):59-68.
    The American Society for Bioethics and Humanities poses a chal­lenge in Core Competencies for Healthcare Ethics Consultation: health care ethics consultation services “should be able to demonstrate their value to those who pay for the service, as well as to those whom the service is intended to serve.” To respond to this challenge, this article provides a brief review of the literature on evaluating ethics consultation in its traditional frameworks of quality outcomes. The author follows this discussion with a new (...)

    Catholic Identity and Charity Care in the Era of Health Reform.John Paul Slosar, Mark F. Repenshek & Elliott Bedford - 2013 - HEC Forum 25 (2):111-126.
    Catholic healthcare institutions live amidst tension between three intersecting primary values, namely, a commitment of service to the poor and vulnerable, promoting the common good for all, and financially sustainability. Within this tension, the question sometimes arises as to whether it is ever justifiable, i.e., consistent with Catholic identity, to place limits on charity care. In this article we will argue that the health reform measures of the Affordable Care Act do not eliminate this tension but actually increase the urgency (...)

    Data Ethics in Catholic Health Systems.Rachelle Barina, Becket Gremmels, Michael Miller, Nicholas Kockler, Mark Repenshek & Christopher Ostertag - 2022 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 22 (2):289-317.
    The Catholic moral tradition has a rich foundation that applies broadly to encompass all areas of human experience. Yet, there is comparatively little in Catholic thought on the ethics of the collection and use of data, especially in healthcare. We provide here a brief overview of terminology, concepts, and applications of data in the context of healthcare, summarize relevant theological principles and themes (including the Vatican’s Rome Call for AI Ethics), and offer key questions for ethicists and data managers to (...)

    Opportunistic Salpingectomy to Reduce the Risk of Ovarian Cancer.Becket Gremmels, Dan O’Brien, Peter J. Cataldo, John Paul Slosar, Mark Repenshek & Douglas Brown - 2016 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 16 (1):99-131.
    Substantial medical evidence shows that about half of ovarian cancers originate in the fallopian tube. Some medical organizations and clinical articles have suggested opportunistic salpingectomy to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer in patients at average risk of developing it. This entails removing the fallopian tubes at the same time as another procedure that would occur anyway. The authors argue that the principles of totality and double effect can justify such salpingectomies, even though there is a low incidence of ovarian (...)

    Therapeutic Access to the Embryo.Mark F. Repenshek - 2011 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 11 (4):735-756.
    Genomic interventions ex utero and in utero are already a reality in medicine. It is plausible to believe that this reality will lead to therapies at the preimplantation level, especially where such interventions are the only safe and effective way to truly prevent human suffering and disease in offspring. The plausibility of this type of genomic therapy is of particular interest for prospective parents who are Roman Catholic, since in vitro fertilization provides the only means by which an offspring’s genome (...)
