Here, Erich H. Loewy expands on his earlier book Textbook of Medical Ethics (1989) offering healthcare workers and students a new perspective on ethical practice.
Textbook of Healthcare Ethics focuses on the social conditions in which medical practice occurs and how ethical healthcare decisions involves nurses, social workers, psychologists, technicians, and patients as well as physicians. This thoroughly revised and expanded edition addresses historical and theoretical underpinnings and practical concerns. A series of case studies serve as a guideline for further discussion. The text examines provocative issues such as organ donation, care of the terminally ill, abortion, HIV-positive healthcare professionals, physician-assisted suicide, and experimentation with fetal tissue. This is an ideal book for all members of the healthcare team as well as students and residents in any discipline of medicine.

`An unqualified success...concise and well written...The medical student or resident will find the substance and style immediately accessible. The book will equally serve the seasoned medical practitioner who is uninitiated in analysis of the ethical dimensions of practice...a valuable work.'
New England Journal of Medicine
`Will prove worthwhile to any student or scholar seeking a painless introduction to the study of ethics.'
American Scientist
`This textbook is pithy, comprehensive, and interesting, unlike some books with flashier titles, and would be an excellent book for discussion-based classroom use.'
