A challenge for 21st century medicine is to rediscover the value of philanthropy and philotechnia in contemporary clinical practice because both are terms that adapt to our more current understanding of how value-based medicine and evidence-based medicine must always go "hand in hand." Our proposal is to offer an integral ethical deliberation method that implies a holistic view of the ethical dilemmas in pediatric clinical practice.
