Editorial Reviews

Brian Lynch
This is a new source for resolving clinical problems in medical ethics. The purpose of the book is to serve as a guide for solving clinical problems in ethics whether they are mundane in nature or dramatic. These are appropriate goals and are met by this work. The principle audience of the work is the clinician and it is not directed at any particular specialty. This being the case, it is equally suited to the medical student and house officer. The author does an excellent job of reaching his stated audience and his credentials are well suited to his task. Technically, the references are appropriate in their currency and pertinence to the subject matter and the book is well indexed. The overall styling and layout of the book are appropriate. This book is an excellent addition to the medical ethics literature. It is a useful reference for any clinician, student, or resident that is not well conversant in the issues of medical ethics. Its goal is both to propose a way of problem solving and to get the reader to think through a problem. At the same time, the work offers definite suggestions on how to solve a problem using case histories. It is written in a style that is inviting, well organized, and that avoids much reference to formal philosophy. A slight problem with the book is the length. The book should be read in its entirety. Given its intended audience, it would probably not be read in its entirety, although this is not that serious as it is also an excellent reference. The book would be a logical purchase for a library, individual, or bookstore as it is a reference book as well as a rather complete primer on basic medical ethics.

Presents practical solutions to ethical dilemmas encountered in clinical practice. Discusses issues such as active euthanasia, notification of HIV test results, managed care, futile interventions, guidelines for clinical studies, the doctor-patient relationship, and organ transplantation. Includes case studies. Can be used as a reference in making decisions and for a more systematic reading on ethical issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This one is uniquely valuable to three groups: early-career clinicians, students and residents, and ethics committee members. The cases and explanatory material are easy to understand, can provide the foundation for fruitful classroom discussion, and may also provide analytical frameworks for approaching real-life ethical dilemmas. In particular, the chapter on confusing ethical distinctions is critical in fulfilling the book's explicit goal of providing examples of "how to think through and resolve difficult cases.""
"This edition is an update and clarification of previous editions of this extremely useful book. "

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tyler S Gibb, JD, PhD (c)(UCLA Health Ethics Center)
Description: As clinical medicine changes, the books covering ethical issues and complex problem-solving must keep pace. This edition succeeds in doing so, presenting an expansion, clarification, and tightening of critical sections.
Purpose: The purpose of this edition is to add case updates and explanatory material to this widely used book. Much of the structure and organization of the book remains unchanged in this edition, but the updated material is useful and provides additional cases for classroom discussion and analysis.
Audience: Many books aim to introduce various audiences to bioethics and clinical ethics decision-making. This one is uniquely valuable to three groups: early-career clinicians, students and residents, and ethics committee members. The cases and explanatory material are easy to understand, can provide the foundation for fruitful classroom discussion, and may also provide analytical frameworks for approaching real-life ethical dilemmas. In particular, the chapter on confusing ethical distinctions is critical in fulfilling the book's explicit goal of providing examples of "how to think through and resolve difficult cases."
Features: Although this edition preserves the majority of the chapters and organization from the fourth edition, it adds clarifications and information throughout. For instance, chapter 43 adds material about standards of care during public crises. Also, various emerging topics and issues are culled from other sections to create a new final section (VII) entitled "Current Controversies," which will likely expand in subsequent editions.
Assessment: This edition is an update and clarification of previous editions of this extremely useful book. This edition may not be a necessary purchase for owners of the fourth edition, but the additional material and expanded cases make this a very valuable book for clinicians, students, and ethics committee members.
