Description

This collection of essays by a group of international scholars focuses on specific issues in bioethics and paediatrics. It reflects interdisciplinary approaches to practical problems at the level of policy and practice. The book includes essays on the issues of: withholding life-sustaining treatment from children; the societal expense of innovative lifesaving treatments; the rights of mature minors; the notion of non-treatment as blame-worthy neglect; and the responsibility of professionals in bioethics and paediatrics to continue to converse thoughtfully and faithfully on these issues.
