Medical Ethics, 9e provides an in-depth study of Bioethics authored by a pioneer in the field. The thought-provoking content affords students the opportunity to think beyond what is presented in the book, enabling them to actively assess what they have read. It includes discussions of famous cases while providing detailed analyses of the issues those cases raise. Pence integrates descriptions of the cases and their issues with historical overviews, following cases over decades to tell readers what did, and often what did not, happen. They will benefit from a new chapter on the ethics of weight management, a half chapter devoted to the opioid epidemic and links in each chapter to online videos that dramatize the cases and issues discussed throughout this new edition.
