A Textbook of Bioethics for Healthcare Professionals

by Princy Louis Palatty, Ashish Kumar U, Russell D’Souza

This textbook focuses on bioethics for healthcare professionals. Health sciences have an inherent link with ethics. The subject of bioethics is quite vast, but not yet assembled together to make it a discipline in its on sight. This book consists of 46 chapters, which include bioethics, terminologies in bioethics, evolution of bioethics, principles of bioethics, moral theories in bioethics, culture and bioethics, research ethics, medical professionalism, animal rights, organ transplantation, ecobioethics, human rights, doctor-patient communication, nursing ethics, dental ethics, bedside ethics, rational drug use, medical complicity, transgender ethics, ethical consultancy, safe practices, benefit and harm, truth telling, autonomy, human dignity and human rights, and effective communication skills. The book compensates for the deficits in medical approaches to explore the philosophical and ethical aspects of its various engagements. It provides a powerful tool particularly for the healthcare professionals in appropriating the existential and ethical challenges confronted by them. This book is an indispensable tool for anyone engaged in the healthcare sector.
