Summary
This volume explores the impact of various health-care structures on the ability of health-care professionals to practice in an ethically acceptable manner. The limits of ethical possibility are created by the system within which health-care workers must practice: a system which mandates `getting to know your patient' but at the same time is restricted by financial concerns of a hospital, hospice, or a health management organization. This juxtaposition of the two conflicting concerns of a health-care worker is discussed in this volume. Among the issues addressed are: Is it possible to appreciate patients' goals and values within a system that mandates that only a short time be spent with each patient? Ethical issues raised in a system where patients are treated by different physicians inside and outside the hospital; Health-care ethics which deal with the concerns of those with access to care but are not concerned with the needs of those who lack access to care. This volume will be of interest to health-care ethicists, as well as health-care professionals
