Description - Handbook of Primary Care Ethics by Andrew Papanikitas

With chapters revolving around practical issues and real-world contexts, this Handbook offers much-needed insights into the ethics of primary healthcare. An international set of contributors from a broad range of areas in ethics and practice address a challenging array of topics. These range from the issues arising in primary care interactions, to working with different sources of vulnerability among patients, from contexts connected with teaching and learning, to issues in relation to justice and resources. The book is both interdisciplinary and inter-professional, including not just 'standard' philosophical clinical ethics but also approaches using the humanities, clinical empirical research, management theory and much else besides.

This practical handbook will be an invaluable resource for anyone who is seeking a better appreciation and understanding of the ethics 'in', 'of' and 'for' primary healthcare. That includes clinicians and commissioners, but also policymakers and academics concerned with primary care ethics. Readers are encouraged to explore and critique the ideas discussed in the 44 chapters; whether or not readers agree with all the authors' views, this volume aims to inform, educate and, in many cases, inspire.

Chapter 4 of this book is freely available as a downloadable Open Access PDF under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 3.0 license.
