for when things go wrong…

MaxwellEdison works with individuals and organisations to bring clarity and understanding to the many aspects of modern clinical and research ethics.

  • Parties in dispute over treatment options.
  • Victims of adverse outcome and iatrogenic (treatment-related) injuries who feel excluded or overpowered by formal process and responses.
  • Second victims who feel shamed or abandoned by their colleagues.
  • Organisations investigating complex or sensitive serious adverse events; identifying and sharing lessons learned, so it may not happen again.
  • Departments and organisations wanting to improve their ethical standards through education; the law and ethics of consent to treatment is a particularly important and challenging topic at the moment.
  • Organisations wanting to establish their own ethics committee.
  • Broadcasters and journalists wanting commentary or clarification of complicated medico-legal and ethical concepts.
