Description:

This important textbook on ethics in clinical neurology covers the ethical dilemmas that are becoming more and more prevalent in the neurologist's everyday practice. Among the patients a neurologist sees are those with incurable diseases, debilitating disorders, and diseases with concomitant psychiatric problems. This book reviews the important works on the subject, identifies the areas of controversy and consensus, provides a balanced account of those areas that remain unresolved, and offers objective approaches for the clinician. Medicolegal cases are integrated where high court judicial decisions were rendered using ethical analyses in their judgments. Those areas of law that parallel clinical ethics will be integrated at appropriate stages.
