Overview

Truth, Trust and Medicine investigates trust and honesty in medicine. It looks at the doctor-patient relationship, raising questions which disturb notions of patients' autonomy and self-determination, such as withholding information and consent and covert surveillance in care units. It will be of interest to those working in medical ethics and applied philosophy, and a valuable resource for practitioners of medicine.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Jackson (business and professional ethics, U. of Leeds) questions whether honesty and openness are of equal importance in maintaining trust in a doctor-patient relationship. In doing so she examines issues such as "noble lies and therapeutic tricks," what truthfulness requires, dishonesty in medical research, and if doctors and nurses can be "too honest." Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
