Synopsis:
Drawing on his extensive experience as both a medical practitioner and a patient, acclaimed author, award-winning physician and ethicist Philip Hbert creates a brave and intimate portrait of the complex ethical questions raised by revolutionary advances in medical diagnosis and treatment. As medical science advances to previously unimagined heights both in terms of its diagnostic and treatment capabilities, new challenges are created for practitioners within the system. This can lead to ethical dilemmas: just because we can offer treatment, should we? Philip Hbert, in his new book Good Medicine, will address the complex ethical questions raised by revolutionary advances in medical treatment. This work expands upon Hbert's previous book, Doing Right, and extends his knowledge of the field beyond medical professionals to reach the patients they treat.
