Medical Ethics

Experimental treatments, genetic engineering, organ transplants, assisted suicide—all these issues create life-and-death dramas every day in hospitals and homes around the world.  Doctors, nurses, patients, and families often disagree on what course of action to take in these situations—and there is often no answer that is clearly right or wrong.  This book introduces students and adults to some of the knottiest, most emotional problems in medical care today.
