9780313287268: Handbook on Ethical Issues in Aging

Johnson addresses ethical issues in aging in a variety of contexts―the social cultural environment, physical health care, mental health care, social health care, legal care, and spiritual care. Because long-term aging has created a new generation of older adults, some new issues are emerging which need to be addressed from an ethical perspective―elder abuse, physician assisted suicide, dementia, intergenerational equity, guardianship, and living wills. A wide range of experts including physicians, philosophers, lawyers, social workers, nurses, sociologists, public health persons, theologians, historians, and ethicists share their insights on the ethical issues and dilemmas older adults in American society are facing or are likely to face over the life course. Of interest to undergraduate and graduate faculty and students in sociology, social work and social services practitioners, policymakers, and academic and professional libraries.

Review:

"Read carefully, this is a volume to provoke discourse among teachers, practitioners, policy makers and planners in an area too often regarded as the sole province of clerics, dons, philosophers, savants, and sophists. This is the first volume to date to bring so much together on Ethics and Aging. The book provides the basis for teaching ethics and aging as no previous collection or set of essays has before. It is rich in its scope and variety approaches to conceiving and doing' ethics, and expansive in its coverage. This is a first rate text for teaching ethics and aging."-Contemporary Gerontology
