An understanding of ethics is vital to the health-care professional. Being professional implies ethical behaviour and knowledge of what it means to be ethical. Building on the success of the first edition, this updated and expanded second edition addresses some of the most pressing ethical concerns and issues that affect health care in southern Africa. Ethical issues are considered from the perspective of the health-care professional with special reference to how they affect and are affected by health-care practice. Consideration is given to moral problems that confront the health-care professional on a daily basis, and to those that occur throughout the lifespan of their patients. The text covers such topics as health-care ethics; ethical theory, principles and decision making; rights and relationships in health-care practice; transcultural issues, and the application of ethical theory in health-care practice. This second edition ensures that "Ethics in Health Care" will maintain its position as the definitive text in this discipline.
