Ethics Consultation

From Theory to Practice

In the clinical setting, questions of medical ethics raise a host of perplexing problems, often complicated by conflicting perspectives and the need to make immediate decisions. In this volume, bioethicists and physicians provide a nuanced, in-depth approach to the difficult issues involved in bioethics consultation. Addressing the needs of researchers, clinicians, and other health professionals on the front lines of bioethics practice, the contributors focus primarily on practical concerns—whether ethics consultation is best done by individuals, teams, or committees; how an ethics consult service should be structured; the need for institutional support; and techniques and programs for educating and training staff—without neglecting more theoretical considerations, such as the importance of character or the viability of organizational ethics.

The observations recorded here deserve close study by anyone who contemplates setting up a referral system for medical staff facing ethical dilemmas.

- Peter D. Toon - Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

Excellent basic and practical introduction to the many issues facing the development of clinical ethics consultation.

The writers explore theoretical and practical realities of the ethics consultation process, key participants and their character, and theoretical foundations of ethics and values that contribute to ethical decision making in clinical care.

- Choice

A nuanced, in depth approach to the difficult issues involved in bioethics consultations.

- Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics

Essential reading for anyone interested in ethics and consultation. It provides in-depth analysis of key issues by leading figures in the field, and represents a comprehensive discussion raised by the ASBH Task Force... A complete, self-contained work that should be extremely valuable both for classroom use, and for ethicists and hospitals conducting ethics consultation.

Endorsements

A very important topic from the leaders in the field.

- Bernard Lo, University of California, San Francisco and author of Resolving Ethical Dilemmas

This book is an important and welcome addition to the scholarship in the field. Addressing the current state and future direction of ethics consultation, it offers a thoughtful overview of some of the most important issues currently debated, from foundational theoretical questions to more practical strategic concerns. It makes a substantial contribution to the literature and will certainly be widely read and referenced.
