  1. Attitudes towards informed consent, confidentiality, and substitute treatment decisions in southern African medical students : a case study from Zimbabwe.

    This study explored the attitudes of biomedical science students (medical students) in a non-Western setting towards three medical ethics concepts that are based on fundamental Western culture ethical principles.

    A dichotomous (agree/disagree) response questionnaire was constructed using Western ethnocentric culture (WEC) based perspectives of informed consent, confidentiality, and substitute decision-making.

    Hypothesized WEC-Biased responses were assigned to the questionnaire's questions or propositions.

    A number of useful responses (169) were obtained from a large, cross-sectional, convenience sample of the MBChB students at the University of Zimbabwe Medical School.

    Statistical analysis described the differences in response patterns between the student's responses compared to the hypothesized WEC-Biased response.

    The effect of the nine independent variables on selected dependent variables (responses to certain questionnaire questions) was analyzed by stepwise logistic regression.

    Students concurred with the hypothesized WEC-Biased responses for two-thirds of the questionnaire items.

    This agreement included support for the role of legal advocacy in the substitute decision-making process.

    The students disagreed with the hypothesized WEC-Biased responses in several important medical ethics aspects.

    Most notably, the students indicated that persons with mental dysfunctions, as a class, were properly considered incompetent to make treatment decisions. (...)
