Ethics for Health Care takes a novel approach to learning about and understanding ethics. It draws on practical experiences and contemporary issues in its exploration of the ethical choices made in health care. The common theme followed in the book is that health care ethics are not only about setting acceptable standards, they are also about reflecting on what health care professionals should aim towards. It is about reflecting on optimal standards, and pursuing those standards. In focussing on the interaction between the health provider and his or her client, the book skilfully incorporates individual and group exercises to help the reader think about particular issues or standards, or particular styles of ethical reflection. Tutorial-type triggers and case studies are also included. Over fifty of these exercises, twenty-four of them new to this edition, assist in developing familiarity with the key ways of identifying, and working to resolve, ethical issues in health care. In this framework, the philosophical aspect of ethics become a tool that every potential and current health care worker can use to reflect on ethics as it applies to their profession.

. . . offers multiple practical exercises that are probing and questioning, and invite reflection. As a 'beginner' student in ethics I found the book very informative and practical, especially concerning the hospital setting. It is thorough and systematic in the layout of its chapters . . . Ethics is introduced in a precise, eloquent and systemic manner. The author's explanations for the various terms are clearly stated. She has quoted many examples from the UK NHS, and the American and her own Australian health systems. She is well informed and certainly not biased . . . This book is suitable for academics, nurses, doctors, students and, basically, for all who provide health care. I would strongly recommend it to any one of these groups of people. ( Nursing Ethics)
