Why is thinking about values and ethics a crucial component of health care training and practice? How can we go about engaging in such thinking?
Values, Ethics and Health Care responds to these essential questions. It examines key ethical frameworks and debates within the field of healthcare, locating them firmly in their social and occupational contexts. Guiding students through a range of dilemmas and difficulties encountered in health care practice with case studies and real-life examples, this lively text illustrates how to apply knowledge to professional practice and decision-making.
Key features of the book:
- Offers a critical and reflective understanding of health care ethics and values
- Presents an interprofessional approach
- Relates theory to ′everyday′ ethics
- Includes student-friendly features such as real-life examples, ′thinking about′ points and links to further reading.
The book will be essential reading for undergraduates taking modules in Values, Ethics and Professional Practice as part of health studies degree programmes. It will also be useful for postgraduates as well as practitioners in the field.
