Product Description

When making medical ethics decisions, concerns about patient confidentiality, consent, competency, potential liability, treatment costs, and family wishes often are compounded by the conflicting demands of the government, the judiciary, health care providers and patients. Medical Ethics Advisor focuses on current issues so you can understand how biological, legal, financial, and moral viewpoints interrelate and shape the decision-making process.

Each month, Medical Ethics Advisor offers critical information to help you:

  • stay up-to-date on important social issues such as palliative care, end-of-life issues, human cloning, assisted suicide, informed consent, research ethics, legal issues, professional integrity issues, disaster planning, and more;
  • implement policies, procedures, and organizational ethics by providing information on regulatory and legislative developments, and existing and emerging standards in the bioethics community;
  • stay current on privacy and confidentiality concerns, especially in the light of HIPAA regulations;
  • provide practical and useful advice on organizing an ethics committee and on facilitating communication among committee members, and between the committee and hospital staff.


You also will get expert opinions on the latest ethical controversies and developments in clinical research, new medical technologies and treatments, and financial arrangements.

A one-year subscription includes at least 12 issues per year. With your paid subscription, you'll also receive this online report free: Ethics Guide for Palliative and End-of-life Care.
