Editorial Reviews

"This is a splendid contribution. There is nothing like it in the literature. It is not just the first substantive exploration of practical issues that fall under the rubric health care organizational ethics, but it also begins the important task of exploring the nature of the field itself." (Tristram Engelhardt, Jr., Ph.D., M.D.)"This volume is much needed, given the increasingly-observed shifts in health care, namely that health care is less and less carried out between a doctor and patient, and more and more carried out between a group of individuals and a patient .... This volume reflects on the kinds of standards that should be in place for institutions, from whence these standards come, how they are changed, implemented, and evaluated, who takes responsibility, and untold other avenues." (Jeffrey Bishop, M.D.)
