Cases reflect the managed care phenomenon and cost containment, demographic changes, the electronic revolution, and the ethical dilemmas resulting from this new climate. The revised edition discusses advances in palliative medicine and its availability, and includes new data regarding attitudes and prevalence of physician-assisted suicide. Attention is given to how issues of cost containment might directly or indirectly influence patients' end-of-life treatment options. Cases are updated to include pertinent information about medical advances and legal developments, and how ethical analysis reflects these new developments.

This book discusses medicine from an ethical perspective, whereas books on medical ethics more commonly present ethics from a bio-medical standpoint. The book is divided into 23 chapters. The introductory chapters present some basic concepts of medical ethics, such as the relation between the legal system and ethics, ethical documents, ethical theories, and ethical analysis. The following chapters address issues of importance in all fields of medicine: respecting autonomy, communication, relations within a healthcare team, professional malpractice, limited resources, and the portrait of a physician. In turn, the third part of the book focuses on ethical aspects in a broad range of medical activities – preventive medicine, human reproduction, genetics, pediatrics, intensive care, palliative medicine, clinical research, unproven methods in diagnostics and treatment, and the role of physicians who aren’t directly responsible for patient care. The last part presents students’ seminars with case stories. The book offers a valuable resource for physicians of all specialties, students of medicine, professionals, and students from other fields devoted to human health, journalists, and general readers with an interest in medicine.

This is the first book to take nursing ethics beyond stock 'moral concepts' to a critical examination of the fundamental assumptions underlying the very nature of nursing. It takes as its point of departure the difficulties nurses experience practising within the confines of a bioethical model of health and illness and a hierarchical, technocratic health care system. The contributors go on to deal openly and honestly with controversial issues faced by nurses, such as euthanasia and HIV.

Starting with detailed cases based on real life, the fourth edition of Ethics in Nursing introduces the principles, concepts, and reasoning needed to think them through. Changes in this edition reflect important developments in nursing, ethical theory, and nursing ethics. Among the expanded set of 64 cases, 22 have been significantly revised and 15 are entirely new. Reasoning skills and philosophical understanding are explained and illustrated in cases involving: nurses and clients; inter-professional relationships; personal responsibility for institutional and public policy; and cost containment, justice, and rationing. New material on ethical theory includes an illustrated explanation and defense of moral pluralism, a section on the ethics of care, and an expanded discussion of reflective equilibrium as a method of ethical reasoning. New topics include pandemics and care for SARS patients, elderly patients contemplating suicide, and workplace violence. As with previous editions, both the nursing and philosophical content are self-contained, making the book accessible to readers with little or no background in either. Ethics in Nursing provides practicing and student nurses with a useful introduction to the identification and analysis of ethical issues that reflects both the special perspective of nursing and the value of systematic philosophical inquiry.

Until now there has been no single volume in which a broad and comprehensive scope of ethical questions in neuropsychology is discussed. These editors have sought to fill that gap, calling upon leading thinkers in the field of neuropsychology and ethics. Ethical Issues in Clinical Neuropsychology affords the seasoned practitioner as well as the beginner a broad sampling of research and commentary on the ethical dilemmas involved in the clinical practice of Neuropsychology. Part 1 presents ethical issues that arise in the provision of neuropsychological services irrespective of setting, whereas Part 2 concentrates on the unique ethical challenges that attend practice with specific populations. Each chapter offers a rare view into the actual practice of Neuropsychology and the examples highlight an oft-quoted observation at Ethics Committee meetings that good clinical practice is good ethical practice. Carefully crafted vignettes allow the reader to apply these concepts to a myriad of situations confronting practicing clinical neuropsychologists. The discerning reader of Ethical Issues in Clinical Neuropsychology should have no difficulty translating between the 1992 and the proposed ethics code. This is a volume that will be a meaningful addition not only to the libraries of graduate students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows but also to the reference shelves of established practitioners and those preparing for board certification examinations in neuropsychology. This book will be of interest to neuropsychologists, rehabilitation psychologists, clinical psychologists and ethicists.

Law and Ethics in Children's Nursing is an important and practical guide on the legal and ethical spects of child healthcare that enables nurses to understand the legal and ethical principles that underpin everyday nursing practice. It explores the concept of childhood and children's rights, the extent to which their rights are upheld in a variety of settings, and the relationship between law and ethics and how they interact in resolving problems and dilemmas that commonly arise in practice. With case studies, learning outcomes and scenarios throughout, Law and Ethics in Children's Nursing places the care and treatment of children in a legal and ethical framework, and explores the way in which legal and ethical aspects of children's nursing differ from those of adults. It explores general principles such as autonomy and consent, confidentiality, accountability and negligence. It then goes on to look at specialist areas such as abortion, sterilisation, research, mental health, organ donation, child protection and death.

Mindfulness is a burgeoning field of study and practice within mental health care and medicine. Yet ethical codes, and the philosophy of the therapist-client relationship, differ greatly between disciplines, and even more between those disciplines and mindfulness-based approaches. The potential for ethical dilemmas is therefore significant. Donald McCown breaks new ground by taking a focused look at an ethics derived from contemporary clinical mindfulness practice itself. What does a secular ethics of mindfulness look like? Who is competent to work therapeutically with mindfulness, and how does one delimit areas and levels of competence? How do clinicians ethically understand the therapist-client relationship from the therapeutic position of mindfulness? And how do clinicians respond when the necessary restraints of their professional role and ethics code come into conflict with the mindfulness-based relationship and therapeutic position? This book makes a vital contribution to the understanding of ethics as the cornerstone of mindfulness-based practice, and will be of interest to all those involved in delivering mindfulness-based interventions, including psychologists, counselors, spiritual directors, occupational therapists, physicians, nurses, and educators.

Dealing primarily with nursing in South Africa and the particular challenges that the country's nurses encounter, this book looks at the ethical questions confronting nurses as well as the moral philosophy behind those considerations. Ubuntu—the African notion that everyone in a community is responsible for the welfare of its members—plays a large part in the moral deliberations of the book, as do problems particular to South Africa. This second edition is updated with new case studies on the AIDS pandemic as well as new ethical questions stemming from the legalization of abortion in South Africa and the rise in the power of health worker unions.
