Summary

This clear, accessible text/reference explores the full range of contemporary issues in health care ethics from a practical wisdom philosophical perspective. The authors present the fundamental concerns of modern medical ethics-autonomy, beneficence, justice, and confidentiality-then provide analysis, cases, and insights from professional literature to develop problems. Principles are applied directly to cases, and many examples are used to illustrate issues. Throughout, the discussion starts with larger issues or concepts and principles and then focuses on specific problems or complications.
