Ward Ethics
Edited by Thomasine Kushner & David Thomasma

Dilemmas for medical students and doctors in training

-Is that improper conduct?
-Was there consent?
-What does a patient have a right to know?
-Should I report that?
-What do we owe the dead and the newly dead?

These are just a few of the ethical questions that confront medical trainees daily and yet there is surprisingly little practical guidance available to them.

Thomasine Kushner and David Thomasma have addressed this need by compiling a series of case studies from around the world and inviting leading ethicists and clinicians to comment on them. Over 8o actual cases cover the range of possible problems which may be encountered by trainees on the wards, from drug and alcohol abuse, whistle-blowing and improper sexual conduct to performing procedures, handling authority, disclosure, blaming, personal responses to patients, and misrepresentation of research. The book arose from years of listening to the real-life experiences and problems of students and trainee doctors and is an essential guide to coping with the ethical dilemmas of those embarking on medical careers.
