Product Description

Review

"I would be thrilled as a medical student to have it as a guide. It combines theory and practice really well. I also like the way the authors personality and views come through. It makes the material seem much 'nearer' to other clinicians' and students' experiences. The cases are great and the psychological depth of the communication and decision making described is immaculate." --Dr Pier Bryden, Assistant Professor and Faculty Lead, Ethics and Professionalism, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children

"Dr. Hebert's straightforward and logical approach to explaining nebulous ethical dilemmas makes Doing Right an accessible book to all healthcare practitioners...Thus, the book is excellent in interweaving ethical principles with pertinent case studies and explanations. Furthermore, the second edition incorporates new advances in the field of medicine, such as reproductive rights, professionalism, and error management. Doing Right provides a comprehensive discourse on major ethical issues that healthcare professionals will encounter in everyday practice. This book should definitely be on the reading list for all medical practitioners and trainees desiring a concise and easy-tounderstand guide to ethics." --Review in the University of Toronto Medical Journal, Volume 86, Number 3, May 2009

"This outstanding introdution to ethical complexities using myriad cases to illustrate the complexity of ethical reasoning" --Dr Mona Gupta, Toronto, ON in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, Sept 21, 2010, 182:1454

Doing Right is a perfect book for ethics for those going for Medical Exams .I ordered this book recently and went through it and was amazed with all the interesting cases encountered in medical practice.I was suggested by many medical examinees about this book.Cases are given in a very easy way and reading them just once would leave good memory.I am planning for medical qualifying exam for canada and took this book as the best for Ethics.

I think that to be truly knowledgeable on different ethical dilemnas, you have to be willing and able to understand both sides of the issue. Not only does this book help you do that, but it helps you identify ethical issues within your day to day life. It provides a basic toolkit to handle these issues and teaches you a smart way to approach them.
By no way does this book provide you the answer to every scenario. But instead it teaches you how to approach and effectively manage ethical issues.

This book was very helpful. I would recommend this to anyone interested or currently in a health profession. The format of the book was generally an explanation of a medical ethics principle with case studies to reiterate the author's points. The case studies were especially helpful.

Format: Paperback
While this book is relatively well written it is only A PRIMER. It is by no means as comprehensive as I expected - and certainly provides no more than a very elementary understanding of medical ethics. While this is a good review for the mccqe1 - I found very little in here that was not also covered in the Toronto Notes. This did expand a little more by using more cases etc. to illustrate by example. So I would give this 4 stars.

but then I have to consider value. This book costs 56 dollars. for a 256 page paperback. What the heck?! Whoever is publishing this (oxford) is using an absolutely ridiculous marketing strategy. If this book were even half the price (still not a great value) I'm sure at least twice as many people would buy it. But to pay 56 dollars for this book is not just robbery - its almost embarassing to admit I paid that much for a book that took me about 4 hours to read. I'm sure this book cost about 8 bucks for oxford to print and ship (if even that).

I did not find this book was helpful for my NOSM interview. However, it was helpful in my own clinical practice.
That being said, there are far better resources to learn about ethics than this book.
Disregard people who state this book is beneficial for interviews. Just gain knowledge on current medical issues and practice answering questions regarding those types of issues.

Fairly good book. It covers a lot of things about the current healthcare. It's a top notch book about ethics!
I think for a premed, it goes a little bit too far. I'm saying this because this book is read by almost every premed student.
