Health Care Ethics is aclear, accessible text/reference that explores the full range of contemporary issues in health care ethics from a practical wisdom approach.  The authors present the fundamental concerns of modern medical ethics—-autonomy, beneficence, justice, and confidentiality-—and then provide analysis, cases, and insights from professional literature to discuss them.  Throughout, the discussion starts with larger issues or concepts and principles and then focuses on specific problems or complications.
