This "cutting edge" anthology of recent articles explores important contemporary ethical issues that arise in the health care professions. Argument-based in style and tone, 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. 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). For anyone in the biomedical professions, including biomedical or laboratory administrators, managers, or supervisors, as well as practitioners such as physicians, nurses, or other health care professionals who deal directly with patients.
