9780070331204: Clinical Ethics

A practical handbook giving information relevant to the ethical issues and decisions a health care provider must deal with on a daily basis. Brief case illustrations cover the issues at hand, instead of complicated legal and philosophical discussions. The book is organized to provide easy access to both special ethical problems and more general considerations. Ethical issues are divided into five general categories: indications for medical interventions; quality of life; socioeconomic factors; and medical considerations concerning the infant and minor patient. The book also examines the ethical dimensions of assisted suicide controversy.
