Truth, Trust and Medicine
Routledge – 2000 – 184 pages
Truth, Trust and Medicine investigates trust and honesty in medicine. It looks at the doctor-patient relationship, raising questions which disturb notions of patients' autonomy and self-determination, such as withholding information and consent and covert surveillance in care units. It will be of interest to those working in medical ethics and applied philosophy, and a valuable resource for practitioners of medicine.
'Jackson has a keen eye for the nuances and variations between particular cases - which is extremely important in applied ethics. The book is very easy to read.' - Bioethics
