Psychiatric ethics: Foundational and evolutionary

Spencer Eth, Gregory B. Leong

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As with the basic and clinical sciences, the field of medical ethics, in particular, that of psychiatric ethics, has grown and developed during the last four decades, the time when Dr. Eugene Brody edited the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. In this paper, the authors will consider a series of ethical problems that psychiatrists have identified in their clinical practice and suggest paths to resolution that may artfully balance conflicts in core moral beliefs.
