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.

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

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
