Long copy: Ethical decision-making is a critical component in the broad spectrum of rehabilitation and health care professions today. The second edition of Ethics in Rehabilitation was developed to give health and rehabilitation professionals the knowledge and tools they need to approach and solve the ethical dilemmas that challenge them in everyday practice. Following an introduction to ethical theories and principles, Drs Kornblau and Burkhardt furnish readers with a brief overview of legal principles that may impact ethical decision making, then examine the relationship between ethical and legal principles that clinicians may encounter. The second section provides readers with an opportunity to apply what they have learned and includes more than 100 ethical dilemmas covering a wide variety of practice-related topics. Further reinforcing the concepts, the final sections consist of ethical dilemma worksheets and a set of additional learning resources to assist in the examination and resolution of ethical dilemmas. Features: More than 100 sample ethical dilemmas extracted from actual practice experiences. Ethical dilemma worksheets to guide learning and illustrate course of action. Extensive set of appendices including sample laws and regulations. Online access to internet resources of state licensure and related laws. Ethics in Rehabilitation offers readers a practical approach to ethics within a clinical context to allow practitioners, educators, and researchers to raise questions, attempt to answer them, and promote and improve ethical practice in rehabilitation.
