Dangerous Disease and Dangerous Therapy in Jewish Medical Ethics



A concise guide to the general principles and approaches to risk, dangerous and terminal illness, withholding and withdrawing therapy, analgesia in dangerously and terminally ill patients, euthanasia and assisted suicide, resuscitation, live organ donation, coercion and consent, triage, and interventions in pregnancy, among others. This book's invaluable content is analyzed through clinical cases that demonstrate the relevant principles in clinical application.

Survey current approaches to these issues in general medical ethics and see where the Jewish approach differs, often sharply. Consider cases and reports drawn from the mainstream medical literature to shed light on life's most difficult situations and decisions.

This is a MUST HAVE book for medical practitioners, healthcare professionals, and Jewish scholars alike.
