Editorial Reviews


"....Overall, the book presents various aspects of conscientious objection in health care remarkably well. Wicclair has been successful in presenting a lucid and comprehensive view of the subject matter in a book that is easily read and accessible even to lay people and yet does not compromise on rigorous academic standards...."
--Azgad Gold, Herzog Hospital, Israel, Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics

"....moves well through the highly technical literature, but the focus is always clear.... Wicclair's work easily could emerge as the industry standard on deciphering justifiable instances of conscientious objection in the health care arena.... Highly Recommended..."
--H. Storl, Augustana College, Choice

"...Wicclair's book is a model of how to undertake scientifically and clinically very well informed, philosophically sophisticated ethical analysis of a complex, current, and important topic in the ethics of the healthcare professions, the ethics and leadership of healthcare organizations and health professions education, and in health policy.... Wicclair's book can be used to considerable advantage to teach the ethics of conscientious objection in healthcare to health professions students, in undergraduate courses on bioethics, and in graduate courses that explore the nature and limits of appeals to conscience, a topic with a long philosophical (and theological) history. Leaders of healthcare organizations and policy makers should keep this book ready to hand."
--Laurence B. McCullough, Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University, Notre Dame Philosophical Review

Book Description

This book provides a comprehensive ethical analysis of conscientious objection in medicine, nursing and pharmacy, including discussions of conscience protection legislation and conscience-based refusals as well as several case studies. It is a valuable reference for scholars and students and anyone interested in this increasingly important aspect of health care.
