The ethical dimensions of managing health services are daunting.
The newest edition of Ethics in Health Services Management
provides the principles to educate students and guide practitioners
as they strive to make the right decision when ethical problems
arise. This highly regarded volume teaches managers how to
recognize and respond confidently to the challenges of ethics and
conduct in health services management.

Offering a solid foundation for effectively identifying and solving
ethical problems, this book objectively examines the difficult
choices and ethical implications raised as managers operationalize
the principles of respect for persons, beneficence, nonmaleficence,
and justice. It examines the role of the organization s culture and
its values, mission, and vision. Specific attention is given to the
importance of the manager s personal ethic, various types of
specialized ethics committees, and the role of professional codes
of ethics. Further, the author thoughtfully explores numerous topics
that affect contemporary health services organizations:
Moral frameworks to apply to one s personal ethic
The importance of virtue ethics
Futility theory and futile treatment guidelines
Organizational philosophies and mission statements
Selecting new staff members using values compatibility
Systems conflict and conflicts of interest
Quality improvement as an ethical imperative
Determinants of patient consent
Issues surrounding physician-assisted suicide and patient
Ethics in marketing and managed care
Challenges of resource allocation
and much more

Filled with practical, problem-solving strategies and useful tools,
this updated and expanded text features more case studies than
the previous edition, including seven all-new cases. Also new
to this edition are expanded attention to public health and the
coordination of community health services.

Ethics in Health Services Management will educate and inform
those who would be leaders in health services organizations.
Readers will come to understand their roles as moral agents,
expected to balance the demands of the organization with
the autonomy, primacy, and protection of patients. This is an
indispensible text for health services management education and a
primer for both clinical and nonclinical managers.
