Reviews

"Studying the ethics of medical and health matters creates a multitude of opportunites for students to exercise their critical-thinking skills.It should be heavily used once you make its presence known."--Reference for Students, November 2006

— Reference Reviews

"This book is a great resource for a college or university library, health sciences or medical library, or any library needing primary sources on many of the key issues in medicine, health, and bioethics. It is very well laid out with a standardized format for each entry consisting of primary source entry, key facts, introduction, the primary source, significance, and further resources for study. This book can provide a good spring board for students needing to find topics for a pro and con discussion paper as well as patrons looking for primary sources on many key discoveries, findings, or areas of controversy in medicine and health." --ARBA, March 2007
