From the Publisher
This second edition of Philip Hebert''s Doing Right offers healthcare trainees and practitioners alike a comprehensive, usable guide to biomedical ethics today. Like its predecessor, this text works through questions of moral principles relevant to a diverse and growing number of healthcare
professionals. Rather than focus on theory, the text takes an applied, case-study based approach that makes complex ethical issues real and relatable. Updates to this edition include new discussions on reproductive technology and reproductive choice, medical professionalism, and managing error. Also
new are thoroughly updated references, expanded theoretical coverage, and case studies that reflect team ethics. This is an ideal text for second-and third-year one-semester ethics courses offered in medical schools, health sciences departments, and nursing programs.
