Overview

For more than 160 years the Code of Medical Ethics has been the authoritative guide on medical professionalism and ethics. As a statement of the values to which physicians commit themselves individually and collectively, the Code is the standard for medicine as a professional community. An essential companion for medical professionals, attorneys and patients who contend with the challenging issues and choices inherent in modern medicine, this resource is looked to increasingly for legal advocacy, health care law and litigation, and the development of health care policy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin L. Bakanas, M.A., M.D.(Saint Louis University School of Medicine)
Description: This is an annotated summary of the AMA Principles of Medical Ethics and Opinions as they have been cited in either journal articles or court or attorney general decisions. This replaces the previous 2010-2011 edition.
Purpose: "It is a complete listing of the current (through December 2011) AMA Principles of Medical Ethics and the opinions issued by the AMA Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs. The annotation process used in the summary opinions section provides both an analysis and rationale for the council opinions.nions. "
Audience: This is a reference and research tool for healthcare practitioners at all levels as well as jurists, legal scholars, and makers of healthcare policy. It is well organized and cross referenced, and the annotations are expertly prepared by the Southern Illinois University Schools of Medicine and Law.
Features: The book is divided into two sections. The first section provides a brief summary of the journal articles, legal decisions, and opinions that have been published, filed according to the relevant principles of medical ethics. The principles and the accompanying preamble were first stated in 1847 and last revised in 2001 and reflect the core ethical principles of the medical profession. They range from competence, commitment to medical education, and compassion and respect for human dignity, to support of universal access to medical care. The second section follows a similar reference process of medical, legal, and ethical literature, but filed according to the relevant opinions of the AMA Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs that address over 200 ethical issues in healthcare. Issues range from social policy matters (for example medical research, reproductive health, and end of life care) through practice matters (conflict of interest, retainer practices, informed consent), to the patient-physician relationship (pediatric decision-making, gifts from patients). Additional useful features include a table of cases, another table of articles, and an index of opinions.
Assessment: "This is a comprehensive and well-organized reference that should be useful in the fields of medicine, health law, and health policy. It extends the previous edition as it is comprehensive through December 2011. It provides a rich fingertip resource to a large volume of publications. "
