Beschreibung von Audible

This installment in Oxford University Press’s Very Short Introductions series covers the often-contentious issues inherent in the field of medical ethics. Tony Hope’s engrossing and educational book covers the basics of what medical ethics are, and guides listeners through a broad array of specific scenarios designed to provoke contemplation about issues of access (to medical information, treatment, even euthanasia) and consent.

Skilled voice actor Eric Martin presents Hope’s thought-provoking guide with the perfect degree of gravitas, his clear, well-paced performance effectively drawing listeners into this audiobook and holding their attention through the important and often taxing questions which compose the bulk of this fascinating work.

Inhaltsangabe

Issues in medical ethics are rarely out of the media and it is an area of ethics that has particular interest for the general public as well as the medical practitioner. This short and accessible introduction provides an invaluable tool with which to think about the ethical values that lie at the heart of medicine. Tony Hope deals with the thorny moral questions such as euthanasia and the morality of killing, and also explores political questions such as: How should health care resources be distributed fairly? Each chapter in the audiobook considers a different issue: Genetics, modern reproductive technologies, resource allocation, mental health, medical research. The audiobook also discusses controversial questions such as: Who should have access to reproductive technology? Who should pay? Is it right to fund expensive drug treatment for individuals? Should active euthanasia be legalized? Should treatment for mental illness be imposed on patients without their consent? Who should have access to information from genetic testing? Should we require consent for the use of dead bodies or organs in medical research?
