Well and Good presents a combination of ""classic"" and little-known cases in health care ethics. These cases, accompanied by information about the major ethical theories, give students a chance to grapple with the ethical challenges faced by health care practitioners, policy makers, and recipients. The authors' narrative style and leading questions provoke student interest and engagement, while allowing instructors the freedom to draw from the theoretical perspectives they consider most useful. This fourth edition includes an expanded discussion of feminist ethics, and new cases addressing pandemic ethics, humanitarian aid, the social determinants of health, research and aboriginal communities, and a number of other emerging issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Comments:

"Perhaps the best text of its kind for undergraduate courses in Health Care Ethics and Health Science programs. It requires no previous knowledge of philosophy, is full of relevant and interesting case studies, and contains the most up-to-date information concerning health law and precedent-setting cases in a Canadian context. Maybe best of all, it's sure to prove a powerful generator of class discussion." - David C. Flagel, University of New Brunswick

"This new and improved edition of Well and Good offers an impressive selection of cases on a broad range of topics. An outstanding resource." - David Rondel, University of Nevada, Reno

"There are so few books like this ... very helpful in showing how ethical theory can be applied in real life." - Mary Bockover, University of California, Santa Barbara

"Well and Good covers a diverse range of issues using medically detailed cases. I particularly like how it addresses clinic and home settings as well as hospitals." - Connie Perry, Allegheny University of the Health Sciences
