Seeking the Ethical in the World of Medicine, by Aaron Klink (Aaron.Klink@Duke.edu), chaplain and bereavement coordinator at Amedisys Hospice in Durham, North Carolina, and a part-time chaplain at Duke University Medical Center.
In the ever-evolving field of biomedical ethics, policy and technology changes occur on an almost daily basis and new questions arise as frequently. Klink’s essay presents overviews but selectively focuses on questions related to genetics, the role of religious perspectives in bioethics, the health care system, and psychopharmacology. Klink evaluates books that treat issues ranging from distributive justice and human dignity to ethical obligations at the beginning and end of life.
