The Functions and Limitations of Clinical Ethics Mediation

(p.727) 20.5 Commentary
The Future of Bioethics

Ji-Yong Park

Oxford University Press

In this commentary, the author discusses an ongoing conversation in medical ethics, in particular with regard to functions and limitations of Clinical Ethics Mediation. While the author would agree that Clinical Ethics Mediation serves as an effective model to reflect value-pluralism, the traditional model seems to augment important roles that the mediation model lacks, particularly with regard to the hospital ethics committee. Thus, application of a single particular model may not necessarily constitute an effective method to resolve every clinical ethics case. Instead, the author proposes that the mediation model represents a useful complementary method which could be used by hospital ethics committees.

Keywords:   Clinical ethics mediation, value-pluralism, hospital ethics committee, alternative dispute resolution, ethics consultation
