A Doody's Core Title!“The authors articulate a systematic method of case analysis for facing challenges in clinical ethics built upon what they refer to as the ‘four topics approach,’ neatly summarized on a single-page pullout reference card, providing easy portability of the method to the bedside... the authors provide numerous realistic case examples throughout, which help illustrate a number of the key concepts in the text...The authors have admirably updated their text with newer ethical concerns.”--Journal of the American Medical Association
Clinical Ethics introduces the "four-topics" method of approaching ethical problems (i.e., medical indications, patient preferences, quality of life, and contextual features). Each of the four chapters represents one of the topics. In each chapter, the authors discuss cases and provide comments and recommendations. The four-topics method is an organizational process by which clinicians can begin to understand the complexities involved in ethical cases and can proceed to find a solution for each case.
