AbstractThis book looks at the complex ethical decisions health providers must make in clinical care situations. They introduce a "four-topics" method of approaching ethical problems ((i.e., medical indications, patient preferences, quality of life, and contextual features). Each of the four chapters represents one of the topics, where the authors discuss case studies and provide recommendations how how a physician can proceed when facing the ethical issues that invariably arise in the course of medical care.
