9780195124392: New Ethics for the Public's Health

Most books about ethics and health focus on issues arising from individual patients and their relationships with doctors and other health professionals. More and more, however, ethical issues are challenges that face entire communities, not just individual patients. This book is an edited collection of readings that addresses these public health challenges. Many of the issues considered, such as policy for alcohol and other drugs, newly emergent epidemics, and violence prevention, are public health concerns beyond the purview of traditional bioethics. Others, such as access to health care, managed care, reproductive technologies, and genetic testing, are covered in bioethics texts, but here they are approached from the distinct viewpoint of public health. The book makes explicit the community perspective of public health, as well as the field's emphasis on prevention. It examines the conceptual issues raised by the public health perspective (i.e., what is meant by community, the common good, and individual autonomy) as well as the policies that can be developed when health problems are approached in population-based, preventive terms.

Review:

See cloth version for selected reviews

"This is an integrated collection of essays and previously published papers that explores the connecting links between advancing public health sciences, changing values, and new ethical concepts that became prominent towards the end of the 20th Century. This is a useful anthology of aspects of
the interfaces among ethics, politics, public health sciences and public health practice." -- John Last, International Journal of Epidemiology
