The Blackwell Guide to Medical Ethics is a guide to the complex literature written on the increasingly dense topic of ethics in relation to the new technologies of medicine.
  • Examines the key ethical issues and debates which have resulted from the rapid advances in biomedical technology
  • Brings together the leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, medicine, theology and law, to discuss these issues
  • Tackles such topics as ending life, patient choice, selling body parts, resourcing and confidentiality
  • Organized with a coherent structure that differentiates between the decisions of individuals and those of social policy.
