Product Description

Book Description

Every accredited American hospital is required to have a mechanism for handling ethical concerns; most hospitals satisfy this requirement by constituting an institutional healthcare ethics committee, a pattern repeated in most western countries. This text provides definitive, comprehensive guidance for members of healthcare ethics committees confronted with ethically challenging situations.

HASH(0x99c9245c) out of 5 stars A worthwhile read April 6 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written for a very limited, specific reading audience, of course. But much more engaging and readable than I anticipated. Commit yourself to the effort required to read this work and you'll receive much from it.
