Summary

Ethical Dilemmas in Allied Health is a textbook that presents the theories and principles of ethical behavior as they arise in the context of concrete moral dilemmas in health care settings. Using case studies that draw learners into a real-life contemporary dilemma, the author clearly assists the allied health student in understanding the various viewpoints that come to bear on the situation as well as ethical principles that the student can refer to in making decisions about the case. By drawing on both the rich literature in the ethics field from all major religious and medical groups as well as her extensive experience with ethics committees in a wide range of health care organizations, the author has written a book that is current, practical, readable and has the ability to engage the reader.
