CHOICE Review

This work is part of Routledge's "The Basics" series, a growing collection of titles on a range of topics. Before this reviewer finished reading it, she had already decided to recommend it to a team developing her university's first interprofessional graduate ethics course in the health sciences as a way to focus curriculum design and to serve as a student textbook. This concise, precise, and inexpensive book contains a trove of information useful for both general health sciences audiences and laypersons wanting a clear introduction to ethical issues in health. Campbell (National Univ. of Singapore) frames the field well with an introduction that provides the cultural and historical context of bioethics along with the relationship between bioethics and the law. The author also offers an intelligent summary of ethical theory. Chapters include "Clinical Ethics"; "Research," an important discussion of research integrity; and "Justice," which discusses population and public health ethics. Each of these chapters is relevant to any health profession, not only medicine. The appendix of oaths would have been better had it included oaths from other health professions, although generally the oaths can easily be adapted to these other fields. A glossary of common terms and apt references end the book. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All library collections. M. M.
