Debating Health Care Ethics
Canadian Contexts, Second Edition
In this updated second edition, Debating Health Care Ethics explores contemporary moral and situational challenges in health care, providing students with the techniques to research, explain, and defend ethical issues. Authors highlight cases that have set new precedents in health law, policy, and practice since the publication of the first edition, including euthanasia, scientific consensus on fetal consciousness, patients’ right to deny treatment, and alternative medications. In each chapter, authors portray a critical situation, examine multiple points of view of the issue, explain debate techniques used, and encourage student participation with review questions and recommended readings. Highlighting critical issues in health care from a Canadian perspective and providing essential tools for respectful debate, this improved edition will benefit students of philosophy, nursing, and health studies.
