About

Overview

Ethics, Legal Issues and Professionalism for Surgical Technology introduces you to key, non-technical aspects of professional practice. Understanding and applying the proper concepts regarding ethics, legal issues, and professionalism is vital for a surgical technologist. This book offers you a foundation in these principles so you can make the right decisions and perform in a manner that renders the highest quality patient care possible. You will develop a base of knowledge in the fundamentals of ethics and legal issues and then progress through theory on moral reasoning, human value development and the bio-psychosocial needs of the patient. Controversial topics will be introduced for analysis and discussion. From there, you move on to legal terminology, sources and types of law, legal doctrines, and liabilities. The final section focuses on professional practice and exposes you to the basic knowledge and behaviors a professional must have.
