About the Authors
  • A comprehensive, accessible approach to the everyday ethical challenges faced in obstetric and gynecological practice. Offering practical guidance for practitioners at all levels, the text also provides a sustained exploration of professional ethics in the intersection of obstetrics and gynecology with psychiatry. Drawing on their award-winning teaching, the authors start each chapter with goals, objectives, topics, and a list of key concepts, which are defined in a separate section. Chapters cover a multitude of topics, from pregnancy and the quest for the 'perfect' baby to end-of-life care - all underpinned by the need for professionally responsible research, advocacy, and health policy. Professional Ethics in Obstetrics and Gynecology is an indispensable resource for both trainee and practicing obstetricians and gynecologists. A chapter devoted solely to pedagogy in professional ethics in obstetrics and gynecology supports the readers' learning and those with or without formal training in ethics to teach students, residents, and colleagues.

    • Each chapter starts with clear goals, objectives and key concepts, which are explained and defined in detail, guiding the reader through the topics
    • Discussions around ethical practices and challenges in research, policy, and clinical scenarios ensure a well-rounded education on ethical reasoning
    • A separate chapter is devoted to the teaching of professional ethics in obstetrics and gynecology, allowing those with or without formal training in ethics to teach students, trainees, and colleagues
