Johan Bester (Medicine) published an article in the leading bioethics journal, The American Journal of Bioethics. This article, "Beneficence, Interests, and Wellbeing in Medicine: What it Means to Provide Benefit to Patients," examines the concept of providing benefit to patients. Bester argues that a person's wellbeing is related both to the person's individual view of the good, and by objective criteria for evaluating wellbeing. To understand what it means to benefit a person, clinicians must therefore consider both the subjective and objective interests of the patient. This suggests a marked change in how we think of the obligations of clinicians to benefit their patients, and broadens and clarifies the scope of the clinician's obligations to their patients.
