About this book
This first volume in the Professional Studies in Health Care Ethics series presents essays on a number of areas of current debate in medicine. Some tackle general questions of the nature of moral action and decision-making in health-care practice, others tackle specific conceptual issues which have considerable bearing on the question of what ought or ought not to be done. The essayists are all health-care professionals with a keen interest in ethical issues, and are writing for other health-care professionals, as well as philosophers.
