Description

Practical Ethics in Clinical Neurology: A Case-Based Learning Approach

 

Practical Ethics in Clinical Neurology (PECN) is a case-based ethics textbook designed for readers who want a concise, accessible book to help them assess and resolve ethical challenges in everyday practice. With chapter topics and case content that reflect commonly encountered issues in adult and pediatric neurology, PECN meets the needs of students, residents, fellows, and practicing neurologists. With easy, web-based access to key guidance documents from the American Academy of Neurology, and references to important sections in Dr. James L. Bernat’s Ethical Issues in Neurology, 3rd ed. (the most highly respected ethics textbook in neurology), PECN helps readers focus on the essential ethical and professional considerations in each case. Directors of medical student clerkships and residency programs in neurology will find that PECN helps them meet the learning objectives of the AAMC, ACGME, and ABPN.
