The issues of artificial reproduction, terminal care and the research and testing of drugs are addressed.

Recensie(s)

This is a book that does not allow you simply to read it passively. It stimulates careful thought and enables the readers to find thier own moral ground to stand on. This is an interesting and informative book, especially for those who want to develop their views in order to work through the complex dilemmas we will meet all the time in the health care field, * Sphincter * this is a very practical and relevant text, written by a moral philosopher and a clinician who have jointly taught ethics to health care workers ... They constantly challenge the reader to consaider alternative possibilities and arguments. This book would be useful for an individual to work through, or in any situation where a group is involved. * Michael Groome, Australian Catholic University, Austraslian Journal of Primary Health - Interchange, Vol. 3, Nos. 2 & 3, 1997 * This book has much to recommend it as a text for students and teachers ... this book is to be welcomed as a clearly written and accessible teaching resource. * Professor R. Chadwick, University of Central Lancashire, International Digest of Health Legislation, 1996, 47(2) * an excellent, well-conceived and authoritatively-executed resource for students and teachers alike ... The style and tone bespeak the authors' own experience as teachers ... ideally suited to course-based students, and can firmly be recommended to them as indeed it can to the general reader looking for a secure introduction to the subject. * Martyn Evans, University of Wales, Swansea, Journal of Medical Ethics, Vol. 21/6/95, December * excellent introduction to medical ethics ... Throughout the book, complex and sometimes difficult concepts are analysed lucidly and succinctly. The vocabulary and prose style are clear and simple, succeeding admirably in rendering the subject matter accessible and intelligible ... this highly recommended book is a perfect introduction to a wide range of topics. It is enjoyable and stimulating, and should be in every practice library. * B. Sweeney, British Journal of General Practice, May 1995 * Healthy Respect' aims at emphasising the moral and ethical problems that arise in everyday practice - the dust of the arena. As a result the reader cannot fail to enjoy participating. * Alex Paton, British Medical Journal *
