Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book's theme is the need to reform medicine internally by returning it to a beneficence-based professional model. The authors begin by analyzing current crises in the cost of medical care, access to medical care, and professional credibility. They find these crises rooted in what they label cost containment' and health policy based on rights and justice.' The harms caused by these approaches are compared to the advantages of a micro approach to health care decision making based on the principle of beneficence. Provocative and interesting book that merits careful reading by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals concerned with health care policy."-Choice

"Marsh and Yarborough argue that the rise of health care consumerism compromises the role of beneficence as the central ethic in the doctor-patient relationship. They believe that beneficence can be an effective means of cost control as well as a crucial component of the moral foundation of the medical profession."-Hasting Center Report
