    Designing Ethicists.Michael C. Brannigan - 1996 - Health Care Analysis 4 (3):206-218.
    In the United States, disturbing concerns pertaining to both how putative bioethicists are perceived and the potential for the abuse of their power in connection with these perceptions compel close examination. This paper addresses these caveats by examining two fundamental and interrelated components in the image-construction of the ethicist: definitional and contextual. Definitional features reveal that perceptions and images of the ethicist are especially subject to distortion due to a lack of clarity as to the nature and qualifications of the (...)

    Connecting the Dots in Cultural Competency: Institutional Strategies and Conceptual Caveats.Michael C. Brannigan - 2008 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 17 (2):173-184.
    Hideo Kimura, a 46-year-old Japanese male patient in a Boston hospital, needs to undergo surgery to remove part of his lower intestine but resists signing the consent form and has little understanding of English. Discussing this with an interpreter, Hideo is puzzled, because he has already authorized his wife Sachiko to decide on his behalf. The interpreter points out to him that he has a right, a moral right, to give his informed consent to the surgery and that Hideo is (...)

  13. Resuscitating Embodied Presence in Healthcare: The Encounter with le Visage in Levinas.Michael C. Brannigan - 2021 - In Susi Ferrarello (ed.), Phenomenology of Bioethics: Technoethics and Lived Experience. Springer. pp. 131-142.
    Our increasingly sophisticated medical technological interventions yield numerous benefits. At the same time, there are dangerous trade-offs, particularly in the domain of digitized health communication and electronic medical records. These have become the rule of thumb, the default posture, in place of interpersonal, embodied, face-to-face interaction. This foremost stumbling block in our healthcare system generates an urgent moral imperative to resuscitate embodied presence in healthcare. Through applying a phenomenological lens, focusing particularly on insights from Emmanuel Levinas, this essay examines his (...)

    Relationality and Consensus in Japan: Implications for Bioethics Policy.Michael C. Brannigan - 1999 - Health Care Analysis 7 (3):289-296.
    This paper examines the Japanese notion of relationality, that is, the idea that the individual is defined primarily within a web of relationships. Furthermore, it proposes that this relationality provides an ontological basis for morality, particularly the critical need for achieving consensus. This need for consensus is evident in the dispute over brain death. It was also conspicuous in the long-standing debate regarding heart transplantation. By reviewing key features of relationality, the study also demonstrates that the Japanese approach toward consensus (...)
