About this book

Introduction

This book serves to unite biomedical principles, which have been criticized as a model for solving moral dilemmas by inserting them and understanding them through the perspective of the phenomenon of health care relationship. Consequently, it attributes a possible unification of virtue-based and principle-based approaches. ​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“In this volume in the Springer Briefs in Ethics series, the author surveys a wide range of current literature for the principles that conform to the phenomenon of the doctor-patient relationship. The purpose is to examine the nature of the doctor-patient relationship. … As a critical review of the current approaches in bioethics, the book is useful for students and scholars interested in theoretical aspects of bioethics in general and the doctor-patient relationship in particular.” (Shahram Ahmadi Nasab Em, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2013)
