Good clinical practice inevitably raises both ethical and legal issues and demands an understanding of both. Different environments produce different problems in practice, and similarly, different patients raise different considerations. All these situations demand the clinician to make decisions that balance both the clinical and ethical considerations.

  • Expert contributors from around the world discuss ethical issues in anaesthesia and intensive care in all of the commonly encountered areas such as:
  • Consent
  • Patient confidentiality
  • Fitness to practice
  • Whistle-blowing on colleagues
  • Clinical research
  • Maternal-foetal conflicts
  • Children
  • Palliative care
  • Withdrawing and withholding therapy
  • Euthanasia
  • Infectious disease control
  • Each chapter focuses on the needs of the clinician, presenting both the underlying principles and how these are used in practice
  • Real cases are used to illustrate the principles, and to highlight how these are interpreted in each case
