Summary
The first textbook on the subject, this is a practical, clinically comprehensive guide to ethical issues in surgical practice, research, and education, written by some of the most prominent figures in the fields of surgery and bioethics. Discussions of informed consent, confidentiality, and advance directives - core concepts integral to every surgeon-patient relationship - open the volume. Seven chapters tackle the ethical issues in surgical practice, covering the full range of surgical patients, including emergency, acute, highrisk, elective, poor surgical risk, and dying patients. The book even considers the special relationship between the surgeon and patients who are family members or friends
