Are you looking for a thought-provoking text that gives students and clinicians a foundational understanding of ethics? Look no further than Ethics for Health Professionals by Carla Caldwell Stanford, PhD and Valerie J. Connor, MA, CCC-SLP. Doody’s Review Service just gave it a 5 star review!
Read an excerpt from the review by Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT, AE-C, from William Beaumont Hospitals,
“…provides a solid understanding of ethical principles and their application in healthcare. The book begins with an overview of ethics and then delves into patient ethics, confidentiality, ethics in the workplace, medical records and HIPAA, law, life and death issues, and controversial topics such as stem cell research and organ allocation. [It] is both easy to read and thought provoking; it asks students to consider their own ethics and values in many ethical situations. This is an excellent book for healthcare students that will prepare them for the real situations they will likely encounter in patient care.”
