0 Reviews
A spin-off publication of Health Law: Cases, Materials & Problems, 5th Edition, this casebook considers several subjects related to interdisciplinary health care decision-making issues, including research upon human subjects and institutional ethics committees. The materials are selected for their value in the classroom and the notes, questions, and comments prepare students for classroom discussion. The problems, which appear throughout the text, bring out the underlying substantive material in a realistic way. Includes sophisticated and lengthy notes to clarify issues. The book challenges those with legal, medical, and philosophical backgrounds, and is accessible to students without any background in bioethics.
