The essence of professional practice is helping patients make difficult judgments in complex and uncertain situations. All health care professionals participate in making ethical judgments almost every day. Only sometimes do they recognize the ethical content of the judgments they face. Even if they do understand, they can face an ethical dilemma, because they often lack the methods to carefully identify the ethical content and also lack the tools to help evaluate and think critically about the consequences of those judgments. Case Studies in Pharmacy Ethics, while specifically addressing these issues in the context of pharmacy practice, is an excellent read for any health care practitioner.
