Erich H. Loewy, Faith T Fitzgerald

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using an actual case, this paper examines a number of ways in which physicians deal with such a case and with the various "principles" and ethical theories to which they are apt to appeal. It goes on to suggest that using Dewey's method of solving problems is most applicable at the bed-side.
