Description - Caring Well by David H. Smith
The complexities of a healthcare situation often include the moral concerns and religious commitments ofthe patient, but they should also include those of the healthcare professionals. In this approach to problems in medical ethics, the contributors provide case studies, interviews, and personal narratives that enables ethicists to listen more attentively, and thus offer wiser responses to the moral issues at stake. Chapters include a review of classic 20th-century writing on religion and medicine, and examination of the issues surrounding organ transplants, an exploration of ways to affirm the dignity of the dying, and a discussion of how we can connect the experience of mortality with what it means to be human.
