|About the Book|
Doing Right is a brief and practical introduction to medical ethics for physicians and medical trainees (students, interns, residents). It eschews most jargon and instead concentrates on the concepts, issues and ethical-legal precedents that health care practitioners in Canada need to be familiar with to practice medicine in an acceptable way. The book uses many real-life cases -- some simple, some challenging -- that will help illustrate the application of modern ethics to everyday practice. Professionals in other health disciplines may find this bo useful as the key issues discussed are often faced by them as well.
