Written by one of the leading Canadian authorities on health care ethics, Ethics in Health Care: A Canadian Focus presents the key ethical issues surrounding several health care topics within the context of the Canadian social and legal system. Beginning with a brief introduction to ethical theory, this text provides students from various academic backgrounds with the necessary conceptual tools to identify the issues, analyze them, and determine practical solutions. Furthermore, each topic is considered within the context of the rapid acceleration of contemporary technologies and their impact on traditional perspectives on the delivery of health care.
