Physician's Guide to End-of-Life Care

Physician's Guide to End-of-Life Care Lowest new price: $40.00
Lowest used price: $0.09
List price: $44.95

Patients want better end-of-life care, and physicians want to provide it. But in a society where high-tech interventions are often emphasized, moving from curative treatment to comfort care is sometimes difficult. Often, patients in the last phase of life want both continued aggressive treatments and the benefits of palliative measures. Many physicians have never been trained in palliative measures and end-of-life care. It is a challenging area but one in which clinicians can enhance the quality of life for seriously ill patients. Developed by members of the ACP End-of-Life Care Consensus Panel, Physician's Guide to End-of-Life Care is divided into three sections containing clearly focused, practical information with illustrative cases. Topics include communications, relationship building, the goals of palliative care; evidence-based approaches to pain, depression, and delirium; intractable suffering; and legal, financial, and quality issues. Palliative medicine should be a core clinical skill for all physicians who care for seriously ill patients. Physician's Guide to End-of-Life Care contains the authoritative information that can help


Faking It

Author: William Ian Miller
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

In this book polymath William Ian Miller probes one of the dirty little secrets of humanity: that we are all faking it much more than anyone would care to admit. He writes with wit and wisdom about the vain anxiety of being exposed as frauds in our professions, cads in our loves, and hypocrites to our creeds. He finds, however, that we are more than mere fools for wanting so badly to look good to ourselves and others. Sometimes, when we are faking it, our vanity leads to virtue, and we actually achieve something worthy of esteem and praise William Ian Miller is the Thomas G. Long Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School. He has also taught at Harvard, Yale, Chicago, and the Universities of Bergen and Tel Aviv. His previous books include The Mystery of Courage (Harvard University Press, 2000) and The Anantomy of Disgust (Harvard University Press, 1997).

Theological Bioethics: Participation, Justice, and Change (Moral Traditions)

Theological Bioethics: Participation, Justice, and Change (Moral Traditions) Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $1.50
List price: $29.95
Author: Lisa Sowle Cahill

The field of bioethics was deeply influenced by religious thinkers as it emerged in the 1960s and early 1970s. Since that time, however, a seemingly neutral political liberalism has pervaded the public sphere, resulting in a deep suspicion of those bringing religious values to bear on questions of bioethics and public policy.

As a theological ethicist and progressive Catholic, Lisa Sowle Cahill does not want to cede the "religious perspective" to fundamentalists and the pro-life movement, nor does she want to submit to the gospel of a political liberalism that champions individual autonomy as holy writ. In Theological Bioethics, Cahill calls for progressive religious thinkers and believers to join in the effort to reclaim the best of their traditions through jointly engaging political forces at both community and national levels.

In Cahill's eyes, just access to health care must be the number one priority for this type of "participatory bioethics." She describes a new understanding of theological bioethics that must go beyond decrying injustice, beyond opposing social practices that commercialize human beings, beyond painting a vision of a more egalitarian future. Such a participatory bioethics, she argues, must also take account of and take part in a global social network of mobilization for change; it must seek out those in solidarity, those involved in a common calling to create a more just social, political, and economic system.

During the past two decades Cahill has made profound contributions to theological ethics and bioethics. This is a magisterial and programmatic statement that will alter how the religiously inclined understand their role in the great bioethics debates of today and tomorrow that yearn for clear thinking and prophetic wisdom.

Medicalization of Everyday Life: Selected Essays

Medicalization of Everyday Life: Selected Essays Lowest new price: $13.00
Lowest used price: $8.23
List price: $19.95
Author: Thomas Szasz

Defining "medicalization" as the perception of nonmedical conditions as medical problems and nondiseases as diseases, Thomas Szasz has devoted much of his career to exposing the dangers of "medicalizing" the conditions of some who simply refuse to conform to society's expectations. Szasz argues that modern psychiatry's tireless ambition to explain the human condition has led to the treatment of life's difficulties and oddities as clinical illnesses rather than as humanity revealed in its fullness.
This collection of impassioned essays, published between 1973 and 2006, chronicles the author's long campaign against the orthodoxies of psychiatry. From "Medicine to Magic" to "Medicine as Social Control", the book delves into the fascinating history of medicalization, including "The Discovery of Drug Addiction," "Persecutions for Witchcraft and Drugcraft," and "Food Abuse and Foodaholism." In a society that has little tolerance for those who live outside its rules, Dr. Szasz's writings are as relevant today as ever.

Moral Development in the Professions: Psychology and Applied Ethics

Moral Development in the Professions: Psychology and Applied Ethics Lowest new price: $50.64
Lowest used price: $14.00
List price: $61.95
Brand: Brand: Psychology Press

Every year in this country, some 10,000 college and university courses are taught in applied ethics. And many professional organizations now have their own codes of ethics. Yet social science has had little impact upon applied ethics. This book promises to change that trend by illustrating how social science can make a contribution to applied ethics.

The text reports psychological studies relevant to applied ethics for many professionals, including accountants, college students and teachers, counselors, dentists, doctors, journalists, nurses, school teachers, athletes, and veterinarians. Each chapter begins with the research base of the cognitive-developmental approach--especially linked to Kohlberg and Rest's Defining Issues Test. Finally, the book summarizes recent research on the following issues:
* moral judgment scores within and between professions,
* pre- and post-test evaluations of ethics education programs,
* moral judgment and moral behavior,
* models of professional ethics education, and
* models for developing new assessment tools.

Researchers in different professional fields investigate different questions, develop different research strategies, and report different findings. Typically researchers of one professional field are not aware of research in other fields. An important aim of the present book is to bring this diverse research together so that cross-fertilization can occur and ideas from one field can transfer to another.
