The Major Problems in Neurology Series is a collection of authoritative, comprehensively referenced books. Each one, by one or two international experts, examines a single topic of particular importance and interest to the world of neurology. Together the books form a fascinating library, reflecting the complexities and diversity faced by neurologists today.
Ethical Dilemmas in Neurology aims to assist in the critical thinking that neurologists and other members of the neurological team must undertake as they face the ethical dilemmas which occur in every day practice.
Divided into four principal sections, diagnosis and communication, therapy, funding and conflicts of interest, and finally death and the withdrawal of treatment, the book encompasses a wide range of ethical issues that are encountered in a variety of clinical settings. The authors confront difficult questions and provide advice and recommendations.
Contributors from around the world have authored chapters which reflect
their diverse backgrounds and different perspectives. Adam Zeman and Linda Emanuel have produced a book which will help neurologists serve their patients better, and which is a welcome addition to the neurologists library.
