Ethics in Health Administration translates the principles and practice of ethics into usable information for application to the real world of health care administration. Based on a model that centers on the administratorsrsquo; role in practice-based ethics, this text also recognizes influences that impact their ethics in decision making. Fictional cases based on real world events help to emphasize chapter content and make it interesting for the learner. Each chapter contains at least two cases for class discussion, as well as references and websites. The Second Edition is a thorough revision that includes urther clarification of terms, new cases, new information on patient-centered care, new information on disaster planning, new material on the culture of compassion, updated instructor resources, and more.
