Example text

The appearance of an adversarial encounter tends to be sustained by the self-fulfillment model of autonomy. This model allows little room for the complex, prioritized structure of ideals, goals, interests, desires, wishes, and whims that governs most people's lives. Everything is homogenized under the simple rubric of "values," hence any overridden value lends a false appearance of normative conflict to clinician-patient encounters. Thus, our dislike ofhospital gowns on sartorial grounds suggests a conflict of values when it is merely evidence, not of an adversarial encounter, but of value prioritization.

46 Baker Like most complex institutions, clinics are prone to intra-staff disputes. Ethicists, because oftheir relative neutrality in the territorial and hierarchical arrangements of clinical institutions, and because of their identification with the idea of ethics, are often appealed to (as neutrals) to arbitrate any number of disputes, many of which are only remotely ethical in nature. Although arbitration is not a major role for most clinical ethicists, itis worth mentioning because it underlines the close association between the idea of ethics and the person of the clinical ethicist, at least in the mind of clinicians.

Who, then, has the most to gain by having an external, relatively neutral party review clinician and patient interpretations of a situation? The patient would seem to have little to lose and everything to gain from the presence of a neutral party who can activate moral concern on the part ofthe more powerful, vertical clinician. , even the ethicist who functioned merely as a redundant echo of clinical values, would still serve the patient's interests well. For merely by being a presence in the clinical complex, the ethicist inspires a concern for, and a discussion of, moral issues that are often ignored-typically to the patient's detriment.
