Ethical Problems in Emergency Medicine : A Discussion-Based Review Paperback
Edited by Peter Rosen, James Adams, Arthur R. Derse, Shamai A. Grossman, Richard E. Wolfe
Part of the Current Topics in Emergency Medicine series
This book is designed to consolidate the relevant literature as well as the thoughts of professionals currently working in the field into a practical and accessible reference for the emergency medical technician, student, nurse, resident, and attending emergency physician.
Each chapter is divided into four sections: case presentation, discussion, review of the current literature, and recommendations.
Designed to serve simultaneously as a learning and reference tool, each chapter begins with a real case that was encountered in an ED setting.
The case presentation is followed by a short discussion of the case, as if at a morbidity and mortality conference, by a panel of experienced attending physicians explaining how they would approach the ethical dilemmas associated with the case, and a review of the existing literature.
