  • Description
  • Details

Making Sense of Medical Ethics offers a no-nonsense introduction to the principles of medial ethics, as applied to the everyday care of patients, the development of novel therapies and the undertaking of pioneering basic medical research.

The practice of clinical medicine is inextricably linked with the need for moral values and ethical principles. The study of medical ethics is, therefore, rightly assuming an increasingly significant place in undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses and in allied health curricula.

Written from a practical rather than a philosophical perspective, the authors call upon their extensive experience of clinical practice, research and teaching to illustrate how ethical principles can be applied in different 'real-life' situations.

Making Sense of Medical Ethics encourages readers to understand the principles of medical ethics as they apply to clinical practice; explore and evaluate common misconceptions; consider the ethics underlying any medical decision; and as a result, to realize that a good appreciation of medical ethics will help them to practise more effectively in the future.
