Building on the wisdom and forward thinking of authors John Monagle and David Thomasa, this thorough revision of Health Care Ethics: Critical Issues for the 21st Century brings the reader up-to-date on the most important issues in biomedical ethics today.

Designed for graduate and upper level graduate programs, this text will challenge the reader to think beyond the existing system of medicine and inspire further exploration and thought.
