While many books in medical ethics are theory-oriented, this book is case-oriented. It is comprised of clinical cases, readings, and an ethical work-up guide for resolving moral problems in patient care. The cases are grouped according to broad categories ranging from reproduction to dying and represent actual medical situations, including clinical detail. The ethical work-up guide introduces students to a model of moral reasoning which can be applied to difficult cases in patient care as one approach to resolving moral dilemmas. Clinical Medical Ethics works to help students become proficient at doing research and thinking embodied in moral analysis of clinical cases.
