In some places, particularly in the UK, Clinical Ethics Committees (CECs) use a structured approach to consider clinical cases. These structured approaches, often understood as ‘ethical frameworks’, are used to guide the CEC’s decision-making as they support clinical teams in reasoning through ethically complex clinical scenarios. After considering a range of these frameworks that are currently in circulation, Sheehan will provide a revamped version of the ETHOX Approach, originally developed in the mid-2000s and which provides a distinctive, analytic approach to developing arguments in clinical ethics case review.

Mark Sheehan is Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Ethics Fellow at the Ethox Centre. His current research projects encompass a range of overlapping issues that arise in the context of population-level health research and governance and public health ethics.

He received his PhD in Philosophy from The City University of New York, where his PhD thesis was on the nature of moral judgements. Prior to his PhD, he received an MA (Hons) and a BA (Hons)/BSc from the University of Melbourne. Prior to coming to Oxford, he was a lecturer in the Centre for Professional Ethics at Keele University, Ethics Fellow at the Mt. Sinai Medical School, New York, and Adjunct Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at The City College of New York.
