Item description for Caring Well: Religion, Narrative, and Health Care Ethics by David H. Smith...
Overview "Caring Well" reinvigorates the contribution of religion to medical ethics by developing new methodologies for approaching problems encountered in one particularly important aspect of the work of health-care professionals: care for the seriously ill. It includes new work by some of the most prominent scholars in the field of medical ethics.
The complexities of healthcare situations often include the religious commitments of patients. They should include those of healthcare professionals as well. In this fresh approach to problems in medical ethics, contributors provide case studies, interviews, and personal narratives that help ethicists listen more attentively and offer wiser critiques of the moral issues involved.
