From the Back Cover
Over 100 authors, representing a wide range of disciplines, nationalities, religions and cultures, write about the many complex ethical dilemmas posed by modern medicine and health care in this richly diverse and thought-provoking collection. The result is a combination of reference work and narrative, both useful and accessible as a professional resource, and informative and readable as an overview of current thinking. The book?s use, analysis and critique of four moral principles?respect for autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice?provide a linking theme throughout, giving the reader an appreciation of the power of these basic principles in providing an analytical framework for moral reflection on ethical issues in health care. The topics discussed in this book are relevant to everyone working in, or associated with, medicine and health care, whether student, practitioner, teacher or 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.
