Summary
Biomedical ethics focuses on moral judgments applied to the delivery of health care. In this worktext, we have two goals: (1) improving your sensitivity to ethical issues in health care, and (2) developing your decision-making skills. Making decisions is never easy. The moral dilemmas outlined in this worktext, and those you encounter in your clinical experience, will never be easy to resolve. Solutions are seldom immediately obvious.-from Preface
