Contemporary Catholic health care ethics by David F Kelly( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Catholic Health Care Ethics, Second Edition, offers an indispensable guide to the bioethical issues that confront today's students, scholars, and practitioners. The practical reference is organized into three sections: theology (basic issues underlying Catholic thought), methodology (how Catholic theology approaches moral issues, including birth control), and applications to contemporary issues. New chapters discuss controversial end-of-life issues such as forgoing treatment, killing versus allowing patients to die, ways to handle decisions for incompetent patients, advance directives, and physician-assisted suicide. Unlike anthologies, coherent text offers a consistent method in order to provide students, scholars, and practitioners with an understanding of ethical dilemmas as well as concrete examples to assist in the difficult decisions they must make on an everyday basis. -- from back cover

Three patients : international perspective on intensive care at the end of life( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores how the scarce resources of intensive care units should be distributed. Three hypothetical patients, each with a different chance of survival, desire intensive care. A multinational panel of experienced critical care physicians offers assessments of the patients' conditions and outlines approaches to treatment. These approaches are then examined by academic medical experts and a medical ethicist, as well as from a legal perspective. The result is a well-rounded and introspective look at care for critically ill patients at or near the end of life
