This book is a practical introduction to the ethical questions doctors and other health professionals can be expected to encounter in their practice. It is of immediate relevance to health care professionals and to the users of health services. The authors start from the premise that medicalethics are embedded in the dilemmas of everyday practice, and their arguments return repeatedly to specific cases, following critical reflection on their views and the views of others. The book is intended as a basic textbook on medical ethics for any medical curriculum that has ethics as a seriouscomponent.
