Summary: Building on the best-selling tradition of previous editions,Principles of Biomedical Ethics,Seventh Edition, provides a highly original, practical, and insightful guide to morality in the health professions.

Ideal for courses in biomedical ethics, bioethics, and health care ethics, the text is enhanced by hundreds of annotated citations and a substantial introduction that clarifies key terms and concepts.
