Editorial Reviews

Review

"This collection signals a new stage in the development of clinical ethics"
BMJ

"The editors and authors of this book give a nice snapshot of an evolving professional discipline. They illustrate all the ways in which ethics consultation is imperfect, tentative, and open to ongoing questioning and discussion. For most complex conundrums of clinical ethics, there is no right answer. Instead, the good consultant helps practitioners and patients to understand what is at stake if they choose one sort of resolution over another.
The cases are presented concisely and give enough information for readers to make judgments about what ought to have been done. The editors even include a useful guide in which cases are organized by theme and suggestions for further study are offered. These features, along with the quality of the case presentations and the personal nature of the reflections, make the book a useful tool for training members of hospital ethics committees. It will also be helpful to others who are interested in understanding the evolving practice of ethics consultation."
--New England Journal of Medicine

Book Description

With 28 detailed individual cases, this book succinctly explores the ethical reasoning, professional issues, and the emotional aspects of these impossibly difficult cases. The cases are grouped together by theme to aid teaching, discussion and professional growth.

I should start with a caveat; I'm not an ethicist, but I am a nurse (I work in an ICU in a medium sized metropolitan hospital) and see a lot of these issues in my day to day work. The cases in this book are what one would consider basic, run-of-the-mill ethics consults, but rather more complicated "haunting" cases. The authors are very sensitive and careful in describing the cases, and thoughtful in looking back to reflect on what made the case so difficult, and what was done well, and what didn't go so well and what they would do differently next time. The essence of some of these cases were very familiar to me, and this book was valuable in that it validated the internal conflict that I had felt in various situations, and that it also enabled me to think through these situations more thoroughly.
