9780231073585: AIDS and Ethics

Should a physician with AIDS be required to inform his or her patients? Does a physician have an obligation to warn the partner who wants this fact kept secret? Should all newborns and pregnant women be screened for HIV? Should insurance companies be required to insure patients who test positive for the disease? Professionals and society at large are confronted by a wide range of complex ethical issues produced by the AIDS health crisis.

AIDS and Ethics is the first major collection of essays on the complex ethical issues created by the AIDS crisis. The nation's leading bioethics experts from the fields of law, medicine, philosophy, political science, religion, and social work present original and accessible essays. They address current controversial issues related to the tension between civil rights and public health, mandatory HIV testing, human subjects research, health care insurance, AIDS education, militant AIDS activism, the physician-patient relationship, issues of privacy, and legal issues. This important book will provide philosophical and practical guidelines to health care and human service professionals, policy makers, scholars, and others affected by the AIDS crisis.

About the Author:

Frederic G. Reamer is a professor in the School of Social Work at Rhode Island College. He is the author of Social Work Values and Ethics, Social Work Malpractice and Liability, The Philosophical Foundations of Social Work, and Ethical Dilemmas in Social Service; co-author of Rehabilitating Juvenile Justice; and editor of AIDS and Ethics and The Foundations of Social Work Knowledge, (all published by Columbia). He is also the author of the recently published Ethical Standards in Social Work: Commentary on the NASW Code of Ethics.

From Library Journal:

The AIDS epidemic has raised a number of disturbing questions. The essays presented here by Reamer explore notions of individual rights, community rights, civil obligation, justice, and even the legitimacy of government. In the introductory essay, the editor considers the relevance of ethics in modern society and dismisses the proposition that expert advice confounds the issues with relativism and moral skepticism. AIDS policy issues stemming from public health concerns are the topic of three essays. The remaining contributions deal with health insurance underwriting, public health education, the roles of activists as well as healthcare professionals. Finally, legal questions and court decisions are reviewed to synthesize this conflict between the individual and the community. Highly recommended for academic libraries.
