Ethical Issues in Clinical Surgery : For Residents
American College of Surgeons
Place of Publication
This 80-page, spiral bound manual designed by the American College of Surgeons Division of Education as a companion publication to Ethical Issues in Clinical Surgery for Instructors and Practicing Surgeons. This case-based manual helps residents examine the ethical underpinnings of clinical practice and address the ethics issues and questions they face everyday while caring for patients. Each chapter includes realistic surgery-based cases, questions for discussion, bioethics bottom line sections, learning objectives, suggested readings, a glossary, and additional resources. (Note: The resident manual does not include special analyses sections and additional questions for discussion that are contained in the instructor's book.) Special margins designed for note-taking add to the utility of the manual. Topics addressed include a framework for considering ethical issues in clinical surgery, competition of interests, truth telling and the surgeon-patient relationship, confidentiality, professional obligations of surgeons, end-of-life issues, and substitute decision making.
