Overview

Biomedical Ethics: A Canadian Focus takes an in-depth look at the critical questions and debates surrounding the issues of patient autonomy, confidentiality, morality, and genetic engineering, among others. The majority of biomedical ethics texts provide American information, standards, and values, which do not always accord with Canadian obligations and expectations. This text takes a Canadian look at biomedical ethics and provides, whenever possible, Canadian standards, Canadian cases, and articles from Canadian authors or authors working at Canadian facilities. While the articles tend to focus primarily on physician-patient relations, the information within them is applicable to all health-care practitioners dealing directly with patients.
