Amid the turmoil of constant change, healthcare executives frequently find themselves in situations where the ethical "rules" may be unclear. Rarely is there a single ethical issue to resolve. More often, numerous intertwined issues with many stakeholders interested in the outcome clamor for attention.
The Tracks We Leave: Ethics in Healthcare Management provides guidance to executives dealing with the competing values and moral conflicts inherent in healthcare. The book uses cases, discussion, and essays to bring to life debates on issues surrounding medical errors, whistle blowing, sexual harassment and gender discrimination, patient safety, workforce reduction, and personnel management.
