Issue Title: Clinical Neuroethics Consultation. This article examines the current controversy over concussions in the NFL. While clinical ethics is necessarily casuistic in some important sense, individual cases are not disconnected from larger issues of health care policy and delivery (Singer et al., 2001). To enlarge the scope of clinical ethics beyond the practice of quandary analysis, the particular clinical problems must be situated in the larger contexts of health care that such problems inevitably occupy. Thus, I will examine the issue of concussions in the NFL on both the policy level and the case-based level. In shifting between their different lenses, I hope to avoid excessive reliance on either a top-down or a bottom-up approach.
