In Ethical Dilemmas in Pediatrics, Forman and Ladd clarify, conceptualize, and guide reasoning toward defensible conclusions relating to ethical decisions in medicine. Brief and challenging clinical cases are followed by key discussion questions. The discussions introduce vocabulary, distinctions, concepts, and analysis designed to deepen understanding. Developed as a teaching tool, the book may be used for class discussions and case conferences. Deciding when not to treat, volunteering children for research, achieving the best doctor-patient relationship, and treating adolescents are among the major topics addressed.
