Caring Well provides a fresh approach to problems in medical ethics. It shows how attending closely to the concerns and religious commitments of both patients and professionals enables ethicists to offer wiser critiques of moral issues in the field of health care. Beginning with chapters that work to recover an experience-near method of engaging moral problems from classic twentieth century writing on religion and medicine, the contributors next consider how the practice of care-giving is shaped by the particular commitments they serve, and patients themselves. Then, through on-the-ground accounts of issues attending the donation and transplant of organs, contributors consider how ethicists might help patients, their families, and professionals work through conflicts between commitments. The final chapters offer perspectives on the ways experience-near appraisals of care for the dying can help all parties concerned_health care professionals, patients, their families, and ethicists_to affirm the dignity of the dying and to connect the experience of mortality with what it means to be human.
The complexities of healthcare situations often include the religious commitments of patients. They should include those of healthcare professionals as well. In this fresh approach to problems in medical ethics, contributors provide case studies, interviews, and personal narratives that help ethicists listen more attentively and offer wiser critiques of the moral issues involved.
