Описание: Cases in Medical Ethics and Law is a fully interactive, stand-alone teaching and learning tutorial for students of medical ethics. It can be used by individuals or small groups and takes a ng approach to the complex legal and ethical issues raised by six scenarios. These are based on real cases that clearly demonstrate the problems arising from recent medical advancements. Each is presented with drop-down menus, notebooks, required.

This text provides coverage of the most discussed topics and up-to-date cases in medical ethics. Each topic is enriched with important background, history and context, and supplemented with a discussion of the most pertinent philosophical theories and ethical issues behind it. Anecdotal updates are included at the end of chapters to give readers insights into what has happened to some of the people involved in these cases.

This collection of sixteen landmark cases in the recent history of medical ethics can be used on such courses as medical ethics, bioethics, nursing ethics, and ethics and contemporary issues. Offering a unique approach to the study of such issues as euthanasia, abortion, animal rights, in vitro fertilization, and AIDS testing, the book presents the clinical facts of famous cases, introduces the ethical dilemmas they present, and describes how different philosophers respond.

I am researching bioethics and especially eugenics in the United States as far as it concerns the Deaf and Hard-of-hearing. Because I work in the university bookstore, I went to see what the classes which teach bioethics are using for textbooks. Dr. Pence's books were being used, and as I looked through them, I could see he dealt with many of the topics I am concerned with...allocations of scarce resources, infant non-treatment on the basis of disability, and the worth that our society puts on the life of someone with a disability. (Nice story about a Deaf-mute who wasn't informed he was going to be the experiment for piggybacking a chimp heart).
Dr. Pence is an excellent writer. This book was an easy and interesting read. It told details concerning prominent cases that I didn't know, and he gives the references to everything, so that makes my research much easier.
Again, this is one of those books that is a must-read for medical students, anyone in public health, educators, and the disabled. Knowledge is power. We can only protect ourselves in the medical community when we know about the conflicts of interests that doctors and researchers face, and how ethicists and politicians perceive not only the disabled, but everyone. In this new world where the Human Genome Project is almost finished, and doctors are already clamoring for testing of all newborns (and fetuses), and there are no protective laws on the books against discrimination...it is very apparent we may possibly have another eugenic movement on our hands. It is up to all of us as informed readers to read someone like Pence and get involved with legislation to stop this from occurring again. Karen Sadler, Science Education, University of Pittsburgh

This book gives a pretty comprehensive overview of classic cases in medical ethics.

Great book! I needed to buy it for a class, but really enjoyed it!

This simple explanation for this book is that it gives the reader insightful information to valuable cases in medicine and humanity. If one is looking for a introduction to medical ethics this is a good start.

I've been teaching with this book for nearly 10 years, having survived several new editions and I keep coming back to it, for several reasons:

1. It's easy to read. Honestly, some textbooks (especially Philosophy) can be dry, using big words to explain big concepts that only make sense to those in the major. This book is written in everyday language, which means a lot to undergraduate students with huge reading schedules.

2. It's interesting. The cases are about real people and the real medical dilemmas they were faced with, placed in the context of history and significance for ethics. It's all relevant.

3. The tough topics are there. Pence does a great job explaining what can be difficult ideas to grasp. The case studies are examples. The ethical debates are very clearly identified.

4. It's both ethics and medicine. Some other reviews suggest the ethics should be gone -- no way! The field is, after all, medical ETHICS, so it would be negligent not to include the ethical theory. Most of the concepts people already understand; Pence does a good job explaining the technical words for them (like utilitarianism, deontology, etc.).

5. It really is objective. Despite protests from those who feel Pence beats up on religion -- especially regarding abortion -- the many complicated sides of these controversial issues are presented. (NOTE: It is a FACT that the Catholic Church turned away from science in response to Darwin with its policy of infallibility in the late 19th century, that there's a ban against birth control, and that the Bible defines life according to breath through the nostrils. Pence presents this information because it impacts the interpretation of the Church's position on certain issues. If philosophy can't be critical, there is no point in studying ethics at all).

This is by far the best introduction to medical ethics I've found. It's not perfect, but there's nothing better. Yet.

I have not read many medical/clinical ethics materials.

I am currently reading this as part of an undergraduate and post-bac philosophy class, however, and enjoy the material greatly.

I would recommend this read to anyone who sees doctors, is a doctor, or wants to be a doctor - which should be quite a large population

This is a very informative book that is written in a way which is easy to understand. I found myself diving into it as if i was reading a novel. Excellent!
I needed this book for my bioethics masters class. It came early and was the exact book i needed for a fairly cheap price. It was used and in wonderful condition. Definitely buying all future textbooks here!
