About this book

The first ethics casebook that integrates clinical ethics (medical, nursing, and dental) and research ethics with public health and informatics.  The book opens with five chapters on ethics, the development of interprofessional ethics, and brief instructional materials for students on how to analyze ethical cases and for teachers on how to teach ethics.  In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare system, the cases in this book are far more realistic than previous efforts that isolate the decision-making process by professions as if each is not embedded in a larger context that involves healthcare teams, hospital policies, and technology. The central claim of this book is that ethics is an important common ground for all of the health professions.  Furthermore, when we recognize that our professions converge upon a common goal we will find less conflict and more pleasure in working together.

About the authors

Jeffrey Philip Spike, Ph.D., has been working full-time in medical education since receiving his Ph.D. in philosophy from the Johns Hopkins University in 1987. He joined the McGovern Center in 2009 as the Sam Karff Chair and the Director of the new Campus-Wide Ethics Program. The Campus-Wide Ethics Program is an initiative to enhance the ethics education at all six schools of the UTH Health Science Center, including a new emphasis on inter-professional education. 

Dr. Spike spent 15 years at the University of Rochester Medical Center, where he taught clinical ethics at the medical school and was Director of the Ethics Consultation Service at the affiliated teaching hospital, Strong Memorial.

Dr. Spike has published over 50 articles, book chapters, book reviews, editorials, and commentaries in journals such as Annals of Internal Medicine, the Journal of Law, Medicine, and Ethics and the Journal of Clinical Ethics.  He is on the Editorial Board of and a regular contributor to the American Journal of Bioethics, The Journal of Clinical Ethics, and Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics.  He is frequently called upon to provide interviews to the media and has been interviewed by the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Tampa Tribune, ABC News, AMA News, The Chronicle for Higher Education, and People Magazine and has appeared on Science Friday with Ira Flatow.

In medical education, one of Dr. Spike’s interests has been the value of using films and TV shows to provide demonstrations and promote discussions of the complex social interactions behind ethical, organizational, and professional decisions.  He has written articles and facilitator guides to The Doctor, Lorenzo’s Oil, Dax’s Case, Wit, and an episode of Scrubs

Reviews
