Overview

While many books in medical ethics are theory-oriented, this book is case-oriented. It is comprised of clinical cases, readings, and an ethical work-up guide for resolving moral problems in patient care. The cases are grouped according to broad categories ranging from reproduction to dying and represent actual medical situations, including clinical detail. The ethical work-up guide introduces students to a model of moral reasoning which can be applied to difficult cases in patient care as one approach to resolving moral dilemmas. Clinical Medical Ethics works to help students become proficient at doing research and thinking embodied in moral analysis of clinical cases.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald B. Marquis(University of Kansas)
Description: This course book is comprised of clinical cases, readings, and an ethical workup guide for resolving moral problems in patient care. The cases and readings in this book are indexed in 10 general categories. Examples are pediatric, adult, and geriatric medicine.
Purpose: This book is intended as an anthology for a course for medical students. It is intended to help such students become proficient at doing the research and thinking embodied in the moral analysis of clinical cases. The book permits faculty to structure the course in different ways. These are worthwhile objectives and the authors succeed in realizing them.
Audience: The book is intended for medical students, probably early in their careers, but residents, practicing physicians, and other health care personnel could read it with benefit.
Features: Neither illustrations nor an index are included. The only references come with the essays the editors have chosen to reprint. The editors include an explanation of how best to use this anthology in a medical school course. This should be quite helpful to medical faculty who would use it. The anthology has been developed from more than 20 years of teaching this subject.
Assessment: By and large, this is a fine book. The combination of cases and essays works well. The book contains 618 pages of fine print. The number of essays could have been reduced without great loss. Nevertheless, for those who are not concerned with eyestrain, this is a book that should be a good introduction to clinical ethics for students and practitioners. It would be a useful purchase for libraries and bookstores that serve patrons who are interested in clinical ethics.
