A wealth of guidance regarding real-life dilemmas in clinical ethics
^^This book will prove to be an invaluable if not indispensable resource for health care professionals, chaplains, pastors, priests, rabbis, and other people of faith who interact with individuals and families facing illness and disability.


^^Robert Orr brings to the table the accumulated knowledge of four decades in the medical field, particularly dealing with clinical ethics. However, unlike many books on medical ethics, this isn't simply a platform to convince us that Orr's opinion is fact. Instead, it is a reality check replete with instructive case studies that reintroduce the human element to a discussion so often detached from the very people it claims to concern
-Publisher.



Clinical ethics is a relatively new discipline within medicine, generated not so much by the Can we . . . ? questions of fact and prognosis that physicians usually address, but primarily by the more uncomfortable gray areas having to do with Should we . . . ? questions: / Should we use a feeding tube for Mom? / How should we deal with our baby about to be born with life-threatening anomalies? / Should our son be taken off dialysis, even though hell die without it? / What should we do with our mentally ill sister, who has proven that she is untreatable? / In this book Robert Orr draws on his extensive medical knowledge and experience to offer a wealth of guidance regarding real-life dilemmas in clinical ethics. Replete with instructive case studies, Medical Ethics and the Faith Factor is an invaluable resource that reintroduces the human element to a discussion so often detached from the very people it claims to concern.
