Case Analysis in Clinical Ethics


Case Analysis in Clinical Ethics

Covering the main methods for analyzing ethical problems in modern medicine, Anneke Lucassen, a clinician, begins by presenting an ethically challenging genetics case drawn from her clinical experience. It is then analysed from different theoretical points of view. Each ethicist takes a particular approach, illustrating it in action and giving the reader a basic grounding in its central elements. Each chapter can be read on its own, but comparison between them gives the reader a sense of to what extent methodology in medical ethics matters, and how different theoretical starting points can lead to different practical conclusions. At the end, Lucassen offers a clinician's response to the various ethical methods described.


 Reviews:

"I found the book to be very useful for clinical practice. Though the case study is focused on a genetics issue, surely anyone in the field can see the application to other ethical dilemmas...The chapter discussions on theoretical grounding are stimulating and at times challenging, but most appreciated in the way they provide insight into the application of theory to practice."
Doody's Review Service®

'It takes a complex clinical case and shows how it can be analysed from different theoretical ethical perspectives … All chapters are written clearly, even those on hermeneutic and post-structuralist analysis. This should not only enlighten, but also reassure, the clinician reader whose instinctive response to these latter approaches might be one of suspicion … succeeds in its aim of illuminating the wide array of methods and theoretical approaches currently in use in clinical ethics. It would be of interest and value to trainees and career doctors in general and specialist practice.' Journal of The Royal Society of Medicine

'This volume is an excellent step in the general direction of grounding medical ethics in more real life experiences.' Megan Clinch, The London School of Economics
