This is an analysis of the meta-analysis article How clinicians make or avoid moral judgments of patients implications of the evidence for relationships and research It comes from the peer-reviewed journal Philosophy Ethics and Humanities in Medicine This article was published in the year 2010 and is from Volume 5 Number 11 It was written by Terry E HillThe article is about how clinicians make and try to avoid making moral judgments on the patients they interact with The main purpose is to identify how these judgments are made so that in the future hopefully providers will be able to provide care without judgments or biases affecting their decisions The idea comes from the idea that we as healthcare providers should be individuals that treat all patients equally and provide a level of care that is consistent from patient to patient However as being human providers are subject to biases that may or may not intentionally or unintentionally come out in the care and interaction that they provide to their patients The author attempted to find literature that showed how and why these interactions took place To determine this interaction between healthcare providers and patients the author attempted to search for studies on moral judgment in healthcare but was relatively unsuccessful The author did find extensive literature on difficult clinical relationships but moral judgment was a secondary focus in these studies As a result the author had to search the PubMed search engine with the keywords morals empathy physician-patient relations and nurse-patient relations As a result he obtained 23240 references400 of these articles were useful and through the research of these articles was able to expand his research to a total of 500 useful articles I believe that the search this author did was more than adequate to provide more than enough evidence in the examination that he decided to undertakeI am very impressed with the amount of research that the author was able to
