Ethical Issues in Clinical Surgery for Instructors and Practicing Surgeons

Mary H. McGrath, MD, MPH, FACS, Editor.

This 150-page, softbound book developed by the American College of Surgeons Division of Education was written to provide practicing surgeons, surgical trainees, and surgeon-educators with a resource to help them examine the ethical underpinnings of surgical practice and address the ethics issues they face everyday while caring for patients. The case-based program is designed for use by course instructors and a companion, spiral-bound manual is available for use with residents. The program may also be used by individuals, and those interested in continuing medical education credit can complete a posttest on the ACS Web site for a nominal fee. Chapter topics include a framework for considering ethical issues in clinical surgery, competition of interests, truth telling and the surgeon-patient relationship, confidentiality, professional obligations of surgeons, end-of-life issues, and substitute decision making. Each chapter includes realistic surgery-based cases, questions for discussion, bioethics bottom line sections, learning objectives, suggested readings, glossary, and additional resources. The book for instructors and practicing surgeons also includes special analyses sections and additional questions for discussion.
