It is not easy to find fresh voices on care at the end of life. But Death in the Clinic does just that, bringing to bear on an old topic many new, and much needed, insights. -- Daniel Callahan, Director of International Programs, The Hasting Center An engaging and challenging collection of insightful essays that constructively challenges assumptions about death in the clinic. This anthology is important reading for practitioner and policymaker alike interested in improving end-of-life care and understanding why needed reform has been so elusive and hard to achieve. -- Joseph J. Fins, M.D., Chief Division of Medical Ethics, Weill Cornell Medical College, and author of A Palliative Ethic of Care: Clinical Wisdom at L Most people die in hospitals, yet the meaning and implications of death in the clinic are rarely explored. Lynn Jansen's book goes a long way towards filling this gap in the literature of bioethics. -- Mary B. Mahowald, professor emerita, University of Chicago This wide-ranging edited collection provides the reader with ethical perspectives on death and dying that are focused on concrete, 'everyday' concerns in clinical settings. The book is aimed at all professional groups who work in the field of death and dying, although its primary focus is on the needs of physicians and medical students...The strength of this book is that it places ethics on the agenda in a way that aims to provide a practical guide to end-of-life challenges.
