A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Edited by four leading members of the new generation of medical and healthcare ethicists working in the UK, respected worldwide for their work in medical ethics, Principles of Health Care Ethics, Second Edition is a standard resource for students, professionals, and academics wishing to understand current and future issues in healthcare ethics.

With a distinguished international panel of contributors working at the leading edge of academia, this volume presents a comprehensive guide to the field, with state of the art introductions to the wide range of topics in modern healthcare ethics, from consent to human rights, from utilitarianism to feminism, from the doctor-patient relationship to xenotransplantation.

This volume is the Second Edition of the highly successful work edited by Professor Raanan Gillon, Emeritus Professor of Medical Ethics at Imperial College London and former editor of the Journal of Medical Ethics, the leading journal in this field.

Developments from the First Edition include:  The focus on ‘Four Principles Method’ is relaxed to cover more different methods in health care ethics. More material on new medical technologies is included, the coverage of issues on the doctor/patient relationship is expanded, and material on ethics and public health is brought together into a new section.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a book of byzantine proportions: a treasure trove for anyone with even the slightest initial interest in biomedical ethics. Indeed this book demonstrates that biomedical ethics is a microcosm of culture broadly conceived.

Principles of Health Care Ethics is unique. There is no other source-book that provides such diversity within the field. Here you can explore Eastern as well as Western approaches; examine the value of scientific studies in ethics, or of bizarre thought experiments. You can read about specific issues arising in clinical care, or gaze into a future when drugs might be widely used not only to treat disease but also to enhance health and abilities. There are twenty chapters on political and social issues and almost as many on the ethics of medical research and new technologies.

The first edition of Principles of Health Care Ethics was a constant companion for me, although one that was rather too frequently ‘borrowed’. This second edition is even more exciting. A book of reference; and also a book to explore."
Tony Hope, Professor of Medical Ethics, University of Oxford

The topics discussed in this book are relevant to everyone working in, or associated with, medicine and health care, whether student, practitioner, teacher of researcher, but its appeal will also extend to those in the fields of philosophy, medical law, sociology and theology, and the general reader concerned about the many moral problems that arise in medical practice.
