Ethical considerations permeate all aspects of health care practice. The third edition of Ethics for Health Care encourages students to develop their skills in ethical reasoning, and shows techniques for dealing effectively with contemporary ethics issues faced by professionals in the everyday health care setting. The text illustrates the way in which ethics underpin decision making in personal contexts. It them explores how the same standards and ideals can inform professional decision-making in all health care disciplines – from nursing and social work to community, allied and public health. Using a ‘treatment sequence’ approach, the text takes students throught the process of training to work in health care, to meeting a patient, and contributing to that person’s care. It is clearly written and contains pedagogical aids throughout, which make the language and concepts of ethics easier to grasp.
