Singling out the double effect - Some further comment
Papanikitas A., Spicer J.
© 2015 The Author(s) Published by Taylor & Francis.We comment on a paper published in the same issue of the London Journal of Primary Care. We applaud Bow’s engagement with the ethical issues in a previous LJPC paper but argue that further work is needed to establish the everyday moral concerns of health care workers in primary care. We also suggest that the ethical distinction between advice and medication and devices may be artificial if both have an effect on a patient.
