Moral boundaries redrawn : the significance of Joan Tronto's argument for political theory, professional ethics, and care as practice by Gert Olthuis( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Tronto's Moral Boundaries. A political Argument for an Ethic of Care (1993) is one of the most influential works in the short history of the ethics of care. In her book Tronto rethinks 'care' as one of the central activities of human life and explains that it is shaped through politics. Since it is two decades ago that Moral Boundaries was published it seems more than worthwhile to take stock

Who cares? : an ethical study of the moral attitude of professionals in palliative care practice by Gert Olthuis( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What induces people to devote their active working life to the care of patients who are seriously ill with a life-threatening condition which is usually going to kill them? Why do professional carers want a career in palliative care? What motivates them and what sort of qualities do they need to be good at providing such care? How should they relate to their patients? In this thesis it is taken as given that health care professionals who are involved in palliative care on a daily basis act - implicitly or explicitly - form a specific moral attitude. This moral attitude - which is defined in general terms as 'the motivation and commitment to act in the interest of other people' - of professional palliative caregivers is the subject of this thesis. The moral attitude will be explored from various ethical angles, on the basis of empirical data that have been collected in several palliative care settings. The thesis includes discussion of how this specific moral attitude can be maintained and further developed while working in palliative care
