The SAGE Handbook of Health Care Ethics

The SAGE Handbook of Health Care Ethics

Edited by:

February 2011 | 480 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The SAGE Handbook of Healthcare Ethics is an influential collection of work by leading scholars on the fundamental and emerging themes which define healthcare ethics. Combining international and interdisciplinary perspectives, the Handbook provides a cutting-edge account of debates in five key areas:

  • Health Care Ethics in an Era of Globalization
  • Beginning and End of Life
  • Vulnerable Populations
  • Research Ethics and Technologies
  • Public Health and Human Rights

This authoritative Handbook brings together experts with backgrounds in philosophy, sociology, law, public policy and the health professions and reflects the increasing impact of globalization and the dynamic advances in the fields of bioscience and genetics, which keep ethics at the centre of debates about the future direction of healthcare. It is an invaluable resource for all students, practitioners, academics and researchers investigating ethical issues in relation to healthcare.
