Overview (Principles of Medical Ethics -- Preface to Opinions of the Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs -- Preamble to Opinions of the Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs) -- Concordance (List of new and current Opinion titles and numbers.) -- Chapter 1: Opinions on Patient-Physician Relationships (Building relationships of trust with patients is fundamental to ethical practice in medicine.) -- Chapter 2: Opinions on Consent, Communication & Decision Making (To enable patients to participate meaningfully in decisions about health care, physicians have a responsibility to provide information and help patients understand their medical condition and options for treatment.) -- Chapter 3: Opinions on Privacy, Confidentiality & Medical Records (Respecting patients' privacy and confidentiality is a core ethical obligation in medicine.) -- Chapter 4: Opinions on Genetics & Reproductive Medicine (Ongoing progress in genetic technologies opens new prospects for understanding and treating disease, while advances in reproductive technologies offer opportunities to create families in novel ways, posing challenges for patients, families, physicians and society.) -- Chapter 5: Opinions on Caring for Patients at the End of Life (As patients near the end of life, physicians play important roles in helping them make often difficult decisions and in providing compassionate care that is respectful of patients' values, goals and preferences.) -- Chapter 6: Opinions on Organ Procurement & Transplantation (Transplantation of organs and tissues can offer hope to gravely-ill patients, but it not only poses challenges for protecting both donors and transplant recipients, it also brings into question how best to ensure the prudent use of scarce resources.) -- Chapter 7: Opinions on Research & Innovation (Physicians who are involved in clinical research have special responsibilities as investigators to protect the rights, safety and welfare of research participants that include matters of study design, informed consent and selection of participants.) -- Chapter 8: Opinions on Physicians & the Health of the Community (Although physicians' primary ethical obligation is to individual patients, they also have a responsibility to protect and promote public health.) -- Chapter 9: Opinions on Professional Self-Regulation (Society permits medicine to set standards of ethical and professional conduct for physicians. In return, medicine is expected to hold physicians accountable for meeting those standards and to address lapses in professional conduct when they occur.) -- Chapter 10: Opinions on Inter-Professional Relationships (Physicians are expected to uphold professional standards of conduct not only in their relationships with patients, but also in their relationships with other health care professionals.) -- Chapter 11: Opinions on Financing & Delivery of Health Care (In today's health care, patient-physician relationships are influenced by changing payment systems and models for delivering care and thus physicians must find new ways to balance responsibilities to multiple stakeholders.)
