In this update of the 2006 edition, Morrison (health administration, Texas State University, San Marcos) addresses the ethical challenges of providing quality, socially-responsible healthcare in today's economic, baby boomer demographic, and technological environment. After surveying theoretical concepts in ethics from St. Thomas Aquinas to Victor Frankl, she presents an ethics-based model of healthcare administration that encompasses personal ethics, internal influences, external influences, and the principles of autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence, and justice. She also examines the implications for practice of quality-regulating agencies and codes of ethics, and provides advice on how to meet challenges to moral integrity. Chapters feature cases and points to ponder, and Web resources. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
