    A new prescription for empirical ethics research in pharmacy: a critical review of the literature.R. J. Cooper, P. Bissell & J. Wingfield - 2007 - Journal of Medical Ethics 33 (2):82-86.
    Empirical ethics research is increasingly valued in bioethics and healthcare more generally, but there remain as yet under-researched areas such as pharmacy, despite the increasingly visible attempts by the profession to embrace additional roles beyond the supply of medicines. A descriptive and critical review of the extant empirical pharmacy ethics literature is provided here. A chronological change from quantitative to qualitative approaches is highlighted in this review, as well as differing theoretical approaches such as cognitive moral development and the four (...)

    Dilemmas in dispensing, problems in practice? Ethical issues and law in UK community pharmacy.R. J. Cooper, P. Bissell & J. Wingfield - 2007 - Clinical Ethics 2 (2):103-108.
    Do UK community pharmacists encounter the high drama dilemmas of the medical ethics literature or is a 'morality of the mundane' more appropriate? This paper presents the findings of a qualitative study that asked a sample of UK pharmacists to describe their ethical issues and to establish whether these were ethical dilemmas as understood philosophically or ethical problems of a more legal or emotional nature. It emerged that although many pharmacists referred to 'dilemmas', these were often problems involving a conflict (...)

    Ethical decision-making, passivity and pharmacy.R. J. Cooper, P. Bissell & J. Wingfield - 2008 - Journal of Medical Ethics 34 (6):441-445.
    Background: Increasing interest in empirical ethics has enhanced understanding of healthcare professionals’ ethical problems and attendant decision-making. A four-stage decision-making model involving ethical attention, reasoning, intention and action offers further insights into how more than reasoning alone may contribute to decision-making.Aims: To explore how the four-stage model can increase understanding of decision-making in healthcare and describe the decision-making of an under-researched professional group.Methods: 23 purposively sampled UK community pharmacists were asked, in semi-structured interviews, to describe ethical problems in their work (...)

    Ethics: Solo doctors and ethical isolation.R. J. Cooper - 2009 - Journal of Medical Ethics 35 (11):692-695.
    This paper uses the case of solo doctors to explore whether working in relative isolation from one’s peers may be detrimental to ethical decision-making. Drawing upon the relevance of communication and interaction for ethical decision-making in the ethical theories of Habermas, Mead and Gadamer, it is argued that doctors benefit from ethical discussion with their peers and that solo practice may make this more difficult. The paper identifies a paucity of empirical research related to solo practice and ethics but draws (...)
