Caring about Health
Presenting a philosophical exploration of the ideas central to health care practice, this book explores such concepts as caring, health, disease, suffering and pain from a phenomenological perspective. The book draws out the ethical demands that arise when one encounters these phenomena and the forms of ethical education that help health care workers respond to those demands.
