"This one is uniquely valuable to three groups: early-career clinicians, students and residents, and ethics committee members. The cases and explanatory material are easy to understand, can provide the foundation for fruitful classroom discussion, and may also provide analytical frameworks for approaching real-life ethical dilemmas. In particular, the chapter on confusing ethical distinctions is critical in fulfilling the book's explicit goal of providing examples of "how to think through and resolve difficult cases."""This edition is an update and clarification of previous editions of this extremely useful book.
