Well and Good presents a combination of classic and little-known cases in health care ethics. These cases, accompanied by information about the major ethical theories, give students a chance to grapple with the ethical challenges faced by health care practitioners, policy makers, and recipients. The authors’ narrative style and leading questions provoke interest and engagement, while allowing readers to work through complicated issues for themselves. This fourth edition includes an expanded discussion of feminist ethics, as well as new cases addressing pandemic ethics, humanitarian aid, the social determinants of health, research and Aboriginal communities, and a number of other emerging issues.

Review:

“Perhaps the best text of its kind for undergraduate courses in Health Care Ethics and Health Science programs. It requires no previous knowledge of philosophy, is full of relevant and interesting case studies, and contains the most up-to-date information concerning health law and precedent-setting cases in a Canadian context. Maybe best of all, it’s sure to prove a powerful generator of class discussion.” ― David C. Flagel, University of New Brunswick

“This new and improved edition of Well and Good offers an impressive selection of cases on a broad range of topics. An outstanding resource.” ― David Rondel, University of Nevada, Reno
