Doctors on the Edge: Will Your Doctor Break the Rules for You?
Sentient Publications, 2006 - Всего страниц: 202
This book exposes some of the hardest decisions to be made in a profession in which people's bodies and souls are laid bare. 'Doctors on the Edge' is the account of doctors who are faced by wrenching moral dilemmas, uninvited and unexpected dilemmas that are thrust upon them. Law, medicine, and morality -- sometimes complementary and sometimes conflicting -- intrude on in the daily practice of medicine. In gripping stories that often including life-and-death decisions, doctors maneuver the ambiguities, subjectivity, and essential principles of medical ethics. Each chapter is a true account of physicians who lied, betrayed confidences, or broke the law to bring about what they believed was best for their patients.
