Frontline caregivers face ethical challenges that are very different from those encountered elsewhere in the organization.

Managing Healthcare Ethically: Clinical Challenges looks at dilemmas that occur in caring for individual patients and groups of patients in today\u2019s changing clinical environment. Assembling columns originally published in American College of Healthcare Executives publications, in particular Healthcare Executive magazine, the book describes and shares practical solutions for the ethical issues that clinical practitioners regularly encounter. It also explores the important role that ethics committees perform in developing and applying policies.

A selected bibliography recommends additional resources for continued learning. Clinical care is at the heart of every healthcare organization, and this book emphasizes the key role that ethics and professionalism play in effectively managing patient experiences and outcomes. The book\u2019s two companion volumes examine ethics through different lenses. Managing Healthcare Ethically: Leadership Roles and Responsibilities focuses on how leaders\u2019 personal ethics and professionalism drive the behaviors of others.
