The definitive authority on medical professionalism. For more than 155 years, the AMA Code of Medical Ethics has been considered the most comprehensive ethics guide for physicians, covering a wide range of issues related to the patient-physician relationship, such as confidentiality and end-of-life care. It also addresses social policy issues that affect medical practice matters as well as medical records, fees and charges, professional rights, and more. This edition features more than 185 ethical opinions of the AMA's Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs. Includes clarification of opinions on gifts to physicians from industry and sales of goods from physician's offices. Among the 12 new opinions in this edition are those on privacy, genomic research, electronic mail, errors, health-related Web sites, and cloning. This authoritative resource for medical ethics includes the revised copy of the Principles of Medical Ethics. With the legal system showing a growing willingness to look to the Principles and Opinions as a basis for health care law, this edition also offers detailed annotations of case law and journal articles to speed and assist research.
