An invaluable support for learning throughout all levels of training, this book introduces the key legal, ethical and professional principles guiding nursing and healthcare practice. Illustrating clearly how legal and ethical principles interplay and inform professional development, Graham Avery focuses directly on the vital areas - such as negligence, consent, confidentiality, and professional conduct - that healthcare students and practitioners need to understand in order to practice safely and ethically. Adopting a very practical, accessible approach, central themes and arguments are highlighted with real and fictional case studies which will help readers connect the often 'dry' topics of law and ethics to their own work with patients. End-of-chapter exercises also serve to encourage critical thinking and to challenge opinion. With further chapters covering more specific areas such as mental health law, end-of-life decisions, and children's law, this will be an indispensable resource for all nursing and healthcare students and practitioners.

Ärztliches Ethos

Technikbewältigung in der modernen Medizin?

Author: Karl Hunstorfer

Dieses Buch setzt sich mit dem Schlagwort des Arztlichen Ethos auseinander. Die moderne High-Tech-Medizin bietet dem arztlichen Handeln Moglichkeiten zur Lebensrettung, wie Heilung und Linderung von schweren Erkrankungen, die es in der Medizingeschichte vorher nicht gab. Diese positive Seite der heutigen westlichen Medizin, auf der Grundlage der Naturwissenschaften beruhend, fuhrt das arztliche Handeln andererseits in Grenzgebiete menschlichen Daseins, in denen die angewandte Technik zur Frage nach der Sinnhaftigkeit dieser technischen Anwendungsmoglichkeiten fuhrt. Medizintechnisches Konnen reichen aus der Sicht und Erfahrung der taglichen Praxis oft nicht aus in der gemeinsamen partnerschaftlichen Beziehung Arzt-Patient eine schwerwiegende Erkrankung zu bewaltigen. Technisch sachliches Konnen des Arztes sollte gepaart sein mit menschlich charakterlichen und geistigen Grundhaltungen, die den Patienten als Menschen/Subjekt wahrnehmen. Die antike Lehre der Tugenden und ihre Weiterentfaltung im christlichen Glauben kann einen solchen Beitrag zu den Grundhaltungen des Arztes leisten. Das Ziel dieses Buches besteht darin, dieses im Sinne eines Diskussionsbeitrages im Rahmen der Medizinischen Ethik darzustellen."
