"As the healthcare professional in closest contact with both the patient and the physician, nurses face biomedical ethical problems in unique ways. Accordingly, Case Studies in Nursing Ethics presents basic ethical principles and specific guidance for applying these principles in nursing practice through analysis of over 150 actual case study conflicts that have occurred in nursing practice. Each case study allows readers to develop their own approaches to the resolution of ethical conflict and to reflect on how the traditions of ethical thought and professional guidelines apply to the situation." "In the updated Third Edition, all case studies and commentaries were changed to reflect current nursing practice. Likewise, the 2001 ANA Code of Nursing Ethics and federal regulations influencing healthcare delivery and the conduct of research were also revised and updated. In addition, research briefs and summaries were added to demonstrate the types of ethics-related research done by nurses and other healthcare workers."--Jacket

The foundations of justice : why the retarded and the rest of us have claims to equality by Robert M Veatch( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As medical and social services become increasingly expensive, the demands of those with severe and uncorrectable handicaps pose an urgent social problem. The immediate question--how finite resources should be allocated, particularly to people with inexhaustible needs and meager capacities for improvement--can only be answered by thoroughly examining current concepts of justice, equality, and social responsibility. Drawing on sociology, philosophy, religion and policy analysis, and supplementing the discussion with actual case studies, Veatch traces the historical origins of our commitment to the disadvantaged, examines how fundamental premises underlying this commitment have been secularized, and explores the limits of rational arguments against those who fail to acknowledge any social obligation. Creating an approach acceptable to both the secular and religious points of view, the author concludes with a cogent argument for prioritizing a commitment to the disadvantaged while recognizing realistic limits to their claims. The Foundations of Justice will interest the medical ethics community and professionals in philosophy, religious studies, medicine and health policy."--Publisher description (LoC)
Patient, heal thyself : how the new medicine puts the patient in charge by Robert M Veatch( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Veatch, one of the founding fathers of contemporary bioethics, sheds light on a fundamental change sweeping through the American health care system, a change that puts the patient in charge of treatment to an unprecedented extent. The change is in how we think about medical decision-making. Whereas medicine's core idea was that medical decisions should be based on the hard facts of science--the province of the doctor--the "new medicine" contends that medical decisions impose value judgments. Since physicians are not trained to make value judgments, the pendulum has swung greatly toward the patient in making decisions about their treatment. Veatch shows how this has been true only for value-loaded interventions (abortion, euthanasia, genetics) but is coming to be true for almost every routine procedure in medicine, and uses a range of examples to argue that this change is inevitable and a positive trend for patients.--From publisher description

Cases in bioethics : from the Hastings Center report by Carol Levine( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies of ethical issues based on real events are followed by comments illustrating how people from various ethical traditions and frameworks and from different academic and professional disciplines analyze the issues and work toward a resolution of the conflict posed. The cases are intended to help the public and professional persons pursue reflective, well-thought-out solutions to real human moral dilemmas, using a systematic ethical analysis. There are seven chapters. The case studies in chapter 1, on issues in reproduction, treat abortion, population programs, risk taking and birth defects, sterilization, and rape. Chapter 2, on patient-physician relationships, examines homosexuality, choosing a therapy when doctors disagree, and faith healing for childhood leukemia. Mental health and medical interventions are the topics of the third chapter. Euthanasia, nurturing a defective newborn, organ donation, and family wishes and patient autonomy are examples of topics treated in chapter 4 on death and dying. Chapters 5 and 6 examine human subjects research and the allocation of scarce (health) resources. The concluding chapter deals with public policy and includes cases on laetrile, baby making, anti-aging drugs, drinking on the job, and state legislation regarding child passenger protection. (Rm)

Hippocratic, religious, and secular medical ethics : the points of conflict by Robert M Veatch( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where should physicians get their ethics? Professional codes such as the Hippocratic Oath claim moral authority for those in a particular field, yet according to medical ethicist Robert Veatch, these codes have little or nothing to do with how members of a guild should understand morality or make ethical decisions. While the Hippocratic Oath continues to be cited by a wide array of professional associations, scholars, and medical students, Veatch contends that the pledge is such an offensive code of ethics that it should be summarily excised from the profession. What, then, should serve as a basis for medical morality? Building on his recent contribution to the prestigious Gifford Lectures, Veatch challenges the presumption that professional groups have the authority to declare codes of ethics for their members. To the contrary, he contends that role-specific duties must be derived from ethical norms having their foundations outside the profession, in religious and secular convictions. Further, these ethical norms must be comprehensible to lay people and patients. Veatch argues that there are some moral norms shared by most human beings that reflect a common morality, and ultimately it is these generally agreed-upon religious and secular ways of knowing -- thus far best exemplified by the 2005 Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights -- that should underpin the morality of all patient-professional relations in the field of medicine."--Publisher's description
Disrupted dialogue : medical ethics and the collapse of physician-humanist communication (1770-1980) by Robert M Veatch( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume begins with the eighteenth century Scottish Enlightenment when physicians such as John Gregory, Thomas Percival, and the American, Benjamin Rush, were close friends of philosophers like David Hume, Adam Smith, and Thomas Reid. They continually exchanged views on matters of ethics with each other in print, at meetings of elite intellectual groups, and at the dinner table. Then something happened: physicians and humanists stopped talking with each other. In searching for the causes of the collapse, this book identifies shifts in the social class of physicians, developments in medical science, and changes in the patterns of medical education."--Jacket
