9780137738472: Medical Ethics (Basic Ethics in Action)

For courses in Medical Ethics, Biomedical Ethics, Healthcare Ethics, or Applied Ethics.

Argument-based in style and tone, this “cutting edge” anthology explores important ethical issues that arise in the health care professions. Exceptionally contemporary in both topic choice and currency of articles, it explores such areas as the Hippocratic Oath; Paternalism and Autonomy; Privacy and Confidentiality; Informed Consent; Gender Issues; Genetic Engineering; Euthanasia; Abortion; and Healthcare Policy in the United States (with regard to the “right” to healthcare and to the allocation of transplants). It features unique first-person interviews with prominent practitioners in biomedicine, case studies from both the administrative and “front-line” perspectives, and a worldview methodology for linking theory to action.
