About the Authors
  • This volume offers a theoretical and practical overview of the ethics of pediatric medicine. It serves as a fundamental handbook and resource for pediatricians, nurses, residents in training, graduate students, and practitioners of ethics and healthcare policy. Written by a team of leading experts, Pediatric Bioethics addresses those difficult ethical questions concerning the clinical and academic practice of pediatrics, including an approach to recognizing boundaries when confronted with issues such as end of life care, life-sustaining treatment, extreme prematurity, pharmacotherapy, and research. Thorny topics such as what constitutes best interests, personhood, or distributive justice and public health concerns such as immunization and newborn genetic screening are also addressed.

    • Devoted to presenting the risks to babies and children that come from modern clinical and academic medicine
    • Written by leaders in the field of bioethics; no recent book covers the subject in comparable breadth or depth
    • Through reasoned argument the authors guide the reader towards pediatric ethical decision making

    Reviews & endorsements

    "....Geoffrey Miller has assembled some of the most notable bioethicists for this interesting and thought-provoking book. The book covers a broad range of topics, from basic concepts and theories in bioethics to chapters detailing specific and narrow issues.... senior scholars in pediatric ethics will likely find the book of interest.... would be best used among pediatric bioethics faculty members or senior pediatric ethics committee members, who would likely find many of the chapters interesting while using others as a springboard for debate."
    --John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Books and Media Reviews Section Editor, JAMA
