Health care reform : ethics and politics by Wade L Robison( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health care reform has been stalled since the Clinton health care initiative, but the political difficulties internal to that initiative and the ethical problems that provoked it -- of cost, coverage, and overall fairness, for example -- have only gotten worse. This collection examines the moral principles that must underlie any new reform initiative and the processes of democratic decision-making essential to successful reform.<BR> This volume provides careful analyses that will allow the reader to short-circuit the mythmaking, polemics, and distortions that have too often characterized public discussion of health care reform. Its aim is to provide the moral foundations and institutional arrangements needed to drive any new health care initiative and so to stimulate a reasoned discussion before the next inevitable round of reform efforts.<BR><BR> Foreword by Thomas H.

Profits and professions : essays in business and professional ethics by Wade L Robison( Book )

9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suppose an accountant discovers evidence of shady practices while ex­ amining the books of a client. What should he or she do? Accountants have a professional obligation to respect the confidentiality of their cli­ ents' accounts. But, as an ordinary citizen, our accountant may feel that the authorities ought to be informed. Suppose a physician discov­ ers that a patient, a bus driver, has a weak heart. If the patient contin­ ues bus driving even after being informed of the heart condition, should the physician inform the driver's company? Respect for patient confidentiality would say, no. But what if the driver should suffer a heart attack while on duty, causing an accident in which people are killed or seriously injured? Would the doctor bear some responsibility for these consequences? Special obligations, such as those of confidentiality, apply to any­ one in business or the professions. These obligations articulate, at least in part, what it is for someone to be, say, an accountant or a physician. Since these obligations are special, they raise a real possibility of con­ flict with the moral principles we usually accept outside of these spe­ cial relationships in business and the professions. These conflicts may become more accentuated for a professional who is also a corporate employee-a corporate attorney, an engineer working for a construction company, a nurse working as an employee of a hospital
Decisions in doubt : the environment and public policy by Wade L Robison( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using examples from the area of waste management but touching also upon issues like the ozone layer, contaminated foodstuffs, and asbestos removal, Robison presents a new vision for rational decision making on environmental issues. But his ideas extend far beyond that arena to include other aspects of public policy. For in exploring a paradigm about how to make reasonable decisions without condemning us to inaction in the face of risks, Robison points out faults in our old policy-making methodology and offers a rationale for a decision procedure based less on certainty but more adapted and adaptive to our times

Ethics within engineering : an introduction by Wade L Robison( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2020 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Engineering begins with a design problem: how to make occupants of vehicles safer, settle on an inter-face for an x-ray machine, or create more legible road signs. In choosing any particular solution, engineers must make value choices. By focusing on the solving of these problems, Ethics Within Engineering: An Introduction shows how ethics is at the intellectual core of engineering. Built around a number of engaging case studies, it presents real examples of engineering problems that everyone, engineer or not, will recognize, ranging from such simple artifacts as toasters and the layout of burners and knobs on a stove top to the software responsible for the Colombia airliner crash"

Developing moral sensitivity by Deborah S Mower( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral sensitivity affects whether and how we see others, note moral concerns, respond with delicacy, and navigate complex social interactions. Scholars from a variety of fields explore the concept of moral sensitivity and how it develops, beginning with a natural moral capacity for sensitivity towards others that is shaped in a variety of ways through relationships, forms of teaching, and social institutions. Each of these influences alters the capacity as well as one's responses in complex ways. The concept of moral sensitivity deepens as progressive chapters demonstrate its increasing complexity through development within individuals, over time, as they mature, and as their relationships and social contexts expand

Practical and professional ethics : key concepts by Wade L Robison( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before we can resolve or avoid an ethical dilemma, we need to understand what makes something ethical. Practical and Professional Ethics : Key Concepts introduces us to a series of real cases where the stakes can be high, the situations complex, and the ethical issues often difficult to see. Drawing on examples from medicine, law and science, it offers a practical approach to thinking critically about the ethical problems that occur in our professions, teaching us how to: focus on the ethical aspects of any situation distinguish between different kinds of ethical problems tailor our response to the kind of problem we face construct arguments we can plausibly attribute to those involved identify the role of power, discretion and moral blindness By guiding us through the concepts, issues and skills at play when we face an ethical problem, we learn how to find a solution. Ideal for students or professionals, this book provides the grounding required to become a more complex moral thinker, a quality that can be applied in a number of fields and jobs"--
