Clinical Ethics: A Practical Approach to Ethical Decisions in Clinical Medicine
Albert R. Jonsen, Mark Siegler, William J. WinsladeISBN: 0071441999;
Clinical Ethics introduces the four-topics method of approaching ethical problems (i.e., medical indications, patient preferences, quality of life, and contextual features). Each of the four chapters represents one of the topics. In each chapter, the authors discuss cases and provide comments and recommendations. The four-topics method is an organizational process by which clinicians can begin to understand the complexities involved in ethical cases and can proceed to find a solution for each case.
