    Physicians' Access to Ethics Support Services in Four European Countries.Samia A. Hurst, Stella Reiter-Theil, Arnaud Perrier, Reidun Forde, Anne-Marie Slowther, Renzo Pegoraro & Marion Danis - 2007 - Health Care Analysis 15 (4):321-335.
    Clinical ethics support services are developing in Europe. They will be most useful if they are designed to match the ethical concerns of clinicians. We conducted a cross-sectional mailed survey on random samples of general physicians in Norway, Switzerland, Italy, and the UK, to assess their access to different types of ethics support services, and to describe what makes them more likely to have used available ethics support. Respondents reported access to formal ethics support services such as clinical ethics committees (...)

    Clinical Ethics Consultation in Europe: A Comparative and Ethical Review of the Role of Patients.Véronique Fournier, Eirini Rari, Reidun Førde, Gerald Neitzke, Renzo Pegoraro & Ainsley J. Newson - 2009 - Clinical Ethics 4 (3):131-138.
    Clinical ethics has developed significantly in Europe over the past 15 years and remains an evolving process. While sharing our experiences in different European settings, we were surprised to discover marked differences in our practice, especially regarding the position and role of patients. In this paper, we describe these differences, such as patient access to and participation or representation in ethics consults. We propose reasons to explain these differences, hypothesizing that they relate to the historic and sociocultural context of implementation (...)

    Biobanking Research on Oncological Residual Material: A Framework Between the Rights of the Individual and the Interest of Society. [REVIEW]Luciana Caenazzo, Pamela Tozzo & Renzo Pegoraro - 2013 - BMC Medical Ethics 14 (1):17.
    The tissue biobanking of specific biological residual materials, which constitutes a useful resource for medical/scientific research, has raised some ethical issues, such as the need to define which kind of consent is applicable for biological residual materials biobanks.

    Turning Residual Human Biological Materials Into Research Collections: Playing with Consent.Eugenijus Gefenas, Vilius Dranseika, Jurate Serepkaite, Asta Cekanauskaite, Luciana Caenazzo, Bert Gordijn, Renzo Pegoraro & Elizabeth Yuko - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (6):351-355.
    This article focuses on three scenarios in which residual biological materials are turned into research collections during the procedure of procuring these materials for diagnostic, therapeutic or other non-research purposes. These three scenarios differ from each other primarily because they employ different models of consent: (a) precautionary consent, which may be secured during the collecting procedure; (b) the presumed consent model, which may be applied during the collection of materials; and (c) consent for research use of identifiable human biological materials, (...)

    Findings From a European Survey on Current Bioethics Training Activities in Hospitals.Renzo Pegoraro & Giovanni Putoto - 2006 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 10 (1):91-96.
    While much work has been done on improving undergraduate education in bioethics, particularly in medicine, less has been said about continuing education of health care workers, particularly non-medical and nursing personnel. Hospitals bring together a variety of professional and non-professional groups in the place where clinical dilemmas are daily events, and would seem ideal places to conduct an ongoing bioethics dialogue. Yet evidence that this is being achieved is sparse.The European Hospital (-Based) Bioethics Program (EHBP) brings together both current and (...)

    Biobanks for Non-Clinical Purposes and the New Law on Forensic Biobanks: Does the Italian Context Protect the Rights of Minors?Pamela Tozzo, Renzo Pegoraro & Luciana Caenazzo - 2010 - Journal of Medical Ethics 36 (12):775-778.
    Biobanks are an important resource for medical research. Genetic research on biological material from minors can yield valuable information that can improve our understanding of genetic–environmental interactions and the genesis and development of early onset genetic disorders. The major ethical concerns relating to biobanks concern consent, privacy, confidentiality, commercialisation, and the right to know or not to know. However, research on paediatric data raises specific governance and ethical questions with regard to consent and privacy. We have considered the Italian normative (...)

    Italian Drug Policy: Ethical Aims of Essential Assistance Levels. [REVIEW]Alessandra Bernardi & Renzo Pegoraro - 2003 - Health Care Analysis 11 (4):279-286.
    In 2001 the Italian Government defined Essential Assistance Levels (LEA), which can be considered as an important step forward in the health care system. The Italian health care system would provide payment of essential and uniform aid services in order to safeguard many values such as human dignity, personal health, equal assistance and good health practices. The Ministry of Health has worked to rationalize the National Formulary and to define evaluation methods for drugs in order to choose what to reimburse (...)

    Evaluating Non-Disclosure of Errors and Healthcare Organization: A Case of Bioethics Consultation.Massimiliano Colucci, Anna Aprile & Renzo Pegoraro - 2015 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 18 (4):607-612.
    Sometimes medical errors should not be disclosed. We report a case of semen samples exchange, during a homologous artificial insemination procedure, where a bioethics consultation was required. The bioethics consultation addressed ethical and legal elements in play, supporting non-disclosure to some of the subjects involved. Through a proper methodology, gathering factual and juridical elements, a consultant can show when a moral dilemma between values and rights—privacy versus fatherhood, in our case—is unsubstantial, in a given context, because of the groundlessness of (...)
