Biomedical Ethics: A Canadian Focus takes an in-depth look at the critical questions and debates surrounding the issues of patient autonomy, confidentiality, morality, and genetic engineering, among others. The majority of biomedical ethics texts provide American information, standards, and values, which do not always accord with Canadian obligations and expectations. This text takes a Canadian look at biomedical ethics and provides, whenever possible, Canadian standards, Canadian cases, and articles from Canadian authors or authors working at Canadian facilities. While the articles tend to focus primarily on physician-patient relations, the information within them is applicable to all health-care practitioners dealing directly with patients.

About the Author:


Johnna Fisher is an instructor in the Department of Philosophy at both the University of British Columbia and Langara College.

Review:

"The combination of classic and contemporary articles and cases strikes a good balance between theoretical and practical aspects of the issues addressed in each chapter. This, in addition to the comprehensive coverage of philosophical, legal, medical and multicultural dimensions of the field, captures the debates in biomedical ethics in a way that will stimulate and engage readers. An excellent text." --Walter Glannon, Canada Research Chair in Medical Bioethics and Ethical Theory, University of Calgary
