Designed for students pursuing careers in a variety of health care programs, ETHICS OF HEALTH CARE: A GUIDE FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE, 4e, delivers an excellent background in legal and ethical theory while emphasizing critical thinking, problem solving, and professional behavior. The 4th edition has been completely updated to modernize content and streamline its focus to reflect the needs of today’s health care students. The first four chapters provide foundational knowledge students need to understand the legal system and ethical theory as it relates to health care practice. Building on these concepts, readers explore ethical and legal health care controversies through a wide variety of issues such as reproductive health, organ donation, physician assisted dying, just allocation of health care, cloning and genetics, and human enhancements. Legal and ethical case studies, current news stories, and problems stimulate discussion and thought. By teaching the language of the legal system and biomedical ethics and focusing on critical thinking skills, the text equips students with the tools to make sound legal and ethical decisions.
