This indispensable textbook explores the ethics of issues from the interpersonal to the political. Expanding on the traditional approach, the editors bring together a range of new perspectives on ethics that reflect the real life experiences and interests of those who work in health and care. Rather than describing abstract ideas and applying them to situations, this authoritative new book uses the everyday situations that occur in health and care as its starting point to examine how we can use our understanding of the moral implications of these to improve practice, relationships and decisions making.
