About this product
- DescriptionBecause the discipline of medical ethics has developed with automy as its foundation, the field has igred pediatric ethics. The book is resoundingly successful in its effort to rectify this problem...[A] pleasure to read. -Eric D. Kodish, M.D., Director, Rainbow Center for Pediatric Ethics, Case Western Reserve University Using a form of medical ethgraphy to investigate a variety of pediatric contexts, Richard B. Miller tests the fit of different ethical approaches in various medical settings to arrive at a new paradigm for how best to care for children. Miller contends that the principle of beneficence must take priority over automy in the treatment of children. Yet what is best for the child is a decision that doctors cant make alone. In making and implementing such decisions, Miller argues, doctors must become part of a therapeutic alliance with families and the child undergoing medical care to come up with the best solution. Children, Ethics, and Modern Medicine combines strong philosophical argumentation with firsthand kwledge of the issues facing children and families in pediatric care. This book will be an invaluable asset to medical ethicists and practitioners in pediatric care, as well as parents struggling with ethical issues in the care of their children.
