9780070331204: Clinical Ethics: A Practical Approach to Ethical Decisions in Clinical Medicine

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.

Review:

"This book is an extremely useful book in the field of applied clinical ethics. A fifth printing certainly validates its usefulness, but may beg the question as well, "Is the fifth edition necessary?" The answer is a resounding "Yes." The authors seriously look at the issues in need of updating from its last printing, such as organizational ethics and the section on conflicts of interest. Even public health issues are covered since the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001." "4 stars" Doody's 20030101

Review:

“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 American Medical Association 2006-10-18)
