  • Medical students, patients, and the process of consent

    Malpas, Phillipa; Merry, Alan; Bagg, Warwick (2014)

    Conference item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The issue of informing patients and gaining their consent (or refusal to consent) for various medical interventions was formally recognised in the development of the Code of Health and Disability Consumers??? Rights in 1996. Rights 6 and 7 specifically set out the rights consumers have to be fully informed, to make an informed choice, and the right to give informed consent. Alongside the HDC rights based focus were changes in the doctor-patient relationship ??? changes that promoted a more patient centred focus - which also supported a paradigm that advocated patients being more involved in the decision-making process concerning their own medical treatment and care. The involvement of medical students in the treatment and care of patients and the obligations students have with respect to the informed consent process has received little academic attention. Yet there is evidence that medical students have troubling ethical experiences with patients regarding the issue of consent. In this discussion I will consider some of the ethical challenges that arose when senior medical students at the University of Auckland identified and discussed their experiences with patients (within the context of consent) as part of their ethics teaching. I will also discuss the consensus document being developed by Auckland and Otago Schools??? of Medicine that arose as a consequence of the consent issues discussed by students.

  • The relationship of duration of fast to the volume and pH of gastric contents

    Hutchinson, BR; Merry, Alan; Wild, Christopher (1986)

    Journal article
    The University of Auckland Library

    Volume and pH of gastric contents were measured after anaesthetic induction in 99 in-patients undergoing general and vascular surgery scheduled for either morning (50) or afternoon (49) lists. Significantly fewer patients in the morning group had pH values below 2.5. The mean pH value of the morning group was significantly higher than that of the afternoon group. There was a positive correlation between duration of fast and pH (the longer the more alkaline) for the groups combined. No significant relationship could be shown for any factor with volume.

  • Applying ethical and legal principles to new technology: the University of Auckland Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences??? policy ???Taking and Sharing Images of Patients???

    Journal article

    To develop a policy governing the taking and sharing of photographic and radiological images by medical students.The Rules of the Health Information Privacy Code 1994 and the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights were applied to the taking, storing and sharing of photographic and radiological images by medical students. Stakeholders, including clinicians, medical students, lawyers at district health boards in the Auckland region, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and the Health and Disability Commissioner were consulted and their recommendations incorporated.The policy 'Taking and Sharing Images of Patients' sets expectations of students in relation to: photographs taken for the purpose of providing care; photographs taken for educational or professional practice purposes and photographic or radiological images used for educational or professional practice purposes. In addition, it prohibits students from uploading images of patients onto image-sharing apps such as Figure 1. The policy has since been extended to apply to all students at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at the University of Auckland.Technology-driven evolutions in practice necessitate regular review to ensure compliance with existing legal regulations and ethical frameworks. This policy offers a starting point for healthcare providers to review their own policies and practice, with a view to ensuring that patients' trust in the treatment that their health information receives is upheld.
