This fourth edition of Health Care Ethics provides a contemporary study of broad and major issues affecting health care and the ethics of health care from the perspective of Catholic teachings and theological investigation.It aims to help Christian, and especially Catholic, health care professionals solve concrete problems in terms of principles rooted in Scripture and tested by individual experience.Since the last edition of Health Care Ethics, there have been many changes in the fields of health care medicine and theology that have necessitated a fourth edition. Ashley and O'Rourke have revised their seminal work to address the publication of significant documents by the Church and the restructuring of the health care system.Features of the revised fourth edition: Discusses significant Church documents issued since the third edition includes "The Splendor of Truth" (Veritatis Splendor), and the "Gospel of Life" (Evangelium Vitae); the "Instruction on the Vocation of Theologians"; the Catechism of the Catholic Church; and the Revised Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Services. Examines the implications of managed care techniques. Probes such changes in the practice of medicine as the new emphasis on preventive care, the involvement of individuals in their own care, greater use of pharmaceuticals in psychiatry, and the greater role of genetics in diagnosis and prognosis. Explores the quest for more compassionate care of the dying. Updates the bibliography.

Comments

Ygglune Ygglune
I greatly appreciate the presentation of Father Ashley and Father O'Rourke, in regard to Christian Decision Making in Bioethics. Their explanation of norms of Christian Faith & Prudence, norms of Christian Hope, and norms of Christian Love is invaluable. However, it seems that their work needs serious cautions - in at least two areas.

As I recall, Father O'Rourke condoned removal of nuitrion and hydration from Terri Schiavo. In light of Pope John Paul II's 3/20/04 Address to the Particpants in the International Congress on "Life-Sustaining Treatments and Vegetative State: Scientific Advance and Ethical Dilemmas," I do not know whether Father O'Rourke has corrected his position.

A section of this text on rape protocol appears inconsistent with Directive 36 of the USSCB's "Ethical and Health Care Guidelines" and the Pennsylvania Catholic Bishops' "Guidelines for Catholic Hospitals Treating Victims of Sexual Assault, rev. ed." Those documents stress the need for absolute care in ensuring that treatment of a victim of sexual assault is not abortifacient. Fathers Ashley and O'Rourke - at least in this addition - did not seem to stress such.

ADDENDUM
There have long been physicians who maintain that it's IMPOSSIBLE to ensure that "emergency contraception" is NOT abortifacient. Section 23 of Dignitas Personae appears to require change at Catholic hospitals, regarding the treatment of women identified as victims of sexual assault. As per Dignitas Personae, "methods are interceptive if they interfere with the embryo before implantation & contragestative if they cause the elimination of the embryo once implanted....the use of means of interception & contragestation fall within the sin of abortion and are gravely immoral." NO guidelines are offered for supposed "moral" use of a potential interceptive or contragestative.

I found this book an excellent introduction into the Church's teachings on contemporary issues of medical ethics. An attempt is made to refute popular liberal arguments--and does a fair job at it. Lots of room for dissagreement and further discussion, however; it is not exhaustive. Emphasis on Papal writings and their implications for pluralist societies. Overall, a good read.
