The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics Paperback / softback

Edited by Peter A. Singer, A. M. Viens


Medicine and health care generate many bioethical problems and dilemmas that are of great academic, professional and public interest.

This comprehensive resource is designed as a succinct yet authoritative text and reference for clinicians, bioethicists, and advanced students seeking a better understanding of ethics problems in the clinical setting.

Each chapter illustrates an ethical problem that might be encountered in everyday practice; defines the concepts at issue; examines their implications from the perspectives of ethics, law and policy; and then provides a practical resolution.

There are 10 key sections presenting the most vital topics and clinically relevant areas of modern bioethics.

International, interdisciplinary authorship and cross-cultural orientation ensure suitability for a worldwide audience.

This book will assist all clinicians in making well-reasoned and defensible decisions by developing their awareness of ethical considerations and teaching the analytical skills to deal with them effectively.
