Debating Health Care Ethics, 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, the scientific consensus on fetal consciousness, patients’ right to deny treatment, and alternative medications. The textbook draws on foundational theory from leading ethics scholars such as Kant and Rawl and includes relevant theoretical philosophies such as feminism, plural deontology, and utilitarianism. Highlighting critical issues in health care from a Canadian perspective and providing essential tools for respectful debate, this improved edition will benefit students in philosophy, nursing, and health studies.
