Summary
"This resource is designed as a reference for clinicians, researchers, bioethicists, and students seeking a better understanding of the ethical problems in the healthcare setting. Each chapter illustrates an ethical problem that might be encountered in everyday practice; defines the concepts at issue; examines their implications from the perspective of ethics, law and policy; and then provides a practical resolution. There are ten key sections presenting the most vital topics and clinically relevant areas of modern bioethics. International, interdisciplinary authorship and cross-cultural orientation ensure suitability for a worldwide audience. This book will assist all clinicians in making well-reasoned and defensible decisions by developing their awareness of ethical considerations and teaching the analytical skills to deal with them effectively."--Jacket
