The virtues in medical practice by Edmund D Pellegrino( Book )

16 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, virtue theories have enjoyed a renaissance of interest among general and medical ethicists. This book offers a virtue-based ethic for medicine, the health professions, and health care. Beginning with a historical account of the concept of virtue, the authors Lire la suite...construct a theory of the place of the virtues in medical practice. Their theory is grounded in the nature and ends of medicine as a special kind of human activity. The concepts of virtue, the virtues, and the virtuous physician are examined along with the place of the virtues of trust, compassion, prudence, justice, courage, temperance, and effacement of self-interest in medicine. The authors discuss the relationship between and among principles, rules, virtues, and the philosophy of medicine. They also address the difference virtue-based ethics makes in confronting such practical problems as care of the poor, research with human subjects, and the conduct of the healing relationship. This book with the author's previous volumes, A Philosophical Basis of Medical Practice and For the Patient's Good, are part of their continuing project of developing a coherent moral philosophy of medicine
Helping and healing : religious commitment in health care by Edmund D Pellegrino( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helping and Healing looks at the ways a religious perspective shapes the healing relationship and the ethics of that relationship. Pellegrino and Thomasma seek to clarify the role of religious belief in health care by providing a moral basis for such commitment as well as a balancing role for reason. This book establishes a common ground for believers and skeptics alike in their dedication to relieve suffering by showing that helping and healing require an involvement in the religious values of patients. It clearly argues that religion provides crucial insights into medical practice and morality that cannot be ignored, even in our morally heterogeneous society. Physicians, nurses, administrators, clergy, theologians, and other health professionals and church leaders will find that this volume will help them reflect on the role of religion in the health care ministry and make a religious commitment integral to their professional lives

Health care : its psychosocial dimensions by Jurrit Bergsma( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Calling on the methodology of psychology, the authors explore the way illness alters the self-image of the sick person, and the way the experience changes the person who is ill. The reader is taken through the psychological impacts of the first clinical moment when the patient realizes he or she is in the altered state of illness, as well as the subsequent effects of pain, hospitalization, being bed-ridden, fatigued or disabled. The central thesis is that an integral picture of medicine must include social-cultural aspects, the institutionalization of health care, and an attempt to provide patient-centered care. The approach taken is the empirically based psychosocial reflection of the disturbances to a person's self-image caused by various kinds of illness. Focusing on the world of the patient, the authors relate to problems concerning self-image, pain, exhaustion, isolation, handicaps, aging, dying and death. The relationships between patients and medical personnel are also examined. Concluding the work is an excellent bibliography keyed to the chapters of the text

This book offers a rich variety of thoughtful explorations on the nature of the human person especially as related to health care, medicine, and mental health.

Ramifications of the theory of personhood are presented for bioethics, genetics, individuality, uniqueness, international law, feminism, and human rights in health care. Intended for professionals in the fields of philosophy of medicine, law, and bioethics, this book will also appeal to psychologists and medical anthropologists
