Description - Ethics, Computing, and Medicine by Kenneth W. Goodman
As those in medicine increasingly depend on computers and other intelligent machines, the intersection of ethics, computing and the health professions grows much more complex and significant. This book attempts to systematically identify and address the full range of ethical issues that arise when intelligent machines are used in medicine, nursing, psychology, and allied health professions. It explores a variety of important issues, including ethics and evaluation in computational medicine; patient and provider confidentiality; responsibility for use of computers in medicine; appropriate use of decision support systems; outcomes research and computational prognosis (including mortality predictions); and computer-based biomedical research--especially meta-analysis. It is accessible to professionals and students in the fields of bioethics and medical informatics.
