A highly readable, down-to-earth, clinically oriented look first at the ethical approaches to medicine in general and then at the specific kinds of questions that arise with informed consent, aggressive treatment, life-sustaining, incompetency, child and family issues, resource allocation, conflicts in obligations, experimentation, and possible harm to patients. Frequent use of case examples. Better suited to clinical teaching than the kinds of ethics texts that deal mainly with abstract considerations. Chapters are selectively referenced. Subject index.
