The book has been extensively reorganized and updated throughout with new concepts and cases. More subsection headings are used as are tables and figures.The book is now divided into three parts: Core Professional Concepts, Respect and Caring, and Organizations and Administration. Chapter 2—Caring, Character, and Principles—is new. The chapter on ethical theories now appears as Chapter 12, allowing instructors to deemphasize it if they choose, although many instructors will prefer to teach it immediately after Chapter 1. Many topics are given greater development, including the steps in resolving ethical dilemmas, the principles of biomedical ethics, the ethics of care, cultural competency, spirituality, and the complex interface between professional ethics and administrative ethics in the health-care setting.
